News

Adopt a Family for Tree of Giving - Here’s your chance to offer a needy family some ‘Christmas Cheer.’  Resurrection Parish will be sponsoring families for Christmas. If you know of a family in need, or if you would like to sponsor a family, please contact the parish office, 920-336-7768 before October 20. "Need" comes in many forms. Families or individuals to think about include: those with financial difficulties, those with medical or mental health difficulties, those who are dealing with immigration issues, those who would like to provide gifts for their family and are not able to do so, and those suffering difficult separations or loss. Family and sponsor information is kept in strict confidence.

Parish CallsThe Stewardship Team will be continuing their calls to all parish households to check-in. We encourage you to take a few moments to speak with the person who calls you and let us know what we are doing well and what we can do better.
