Each year since 1990, on or near the first day of winter and the longest night of the year, the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) has sponsored National Homeless Persons' Memorial Day to bring attention to the tragedy of homelessness, the lack of affordable housing, and to remember our friends without stable housing who have paid the ultimate price for our nation's failure to address this crisis. This event is open to the public; all are invited to participate in solidarity with those who believe health care, housing, and physical safety are basic human rights, not benefits to be earned.

 

December REVEALED Youth Ministry Nights

How does God reveal himself in middle school and high school?
What does it mean to be a Catholic teen today? 


All teens and preteens are invited to come to REVEALED nights. Regardless of where you go to school or even your parish, REVEALED is for you.

Each REVEALED night will have time devoted to building relationships, serving others, and growing in our Catholic faith. There will be just-for-fun games, mini-stewardship projects, faith-sharing, and even science experiments to explore some of the elements of our faith. As a community, we will discover how God wants us to live.

Last minute but as the Parish Wide Theme for Life Long Faith Formation this year is: The Creed how appropriate that the Pilgrim Forum Lectures at St. Norbert College is also on the Creed this week!

Thursday, November 28th

World renown theologian Peter C. Phan, right here in De Pere, is an incredible experience for any adult wishing to deepen appreciation/knowledge of the Apostle’s Creed.  Free and included continental breakfast! Pre-registration is all they ask! Peter C. Phan, Ph.D. will explore this segment of the creed: “...he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty…”

 Who is Peter C. Phan people might ask?  https://gufaculty360.georgetown.edu/s/contact/00336000014RzGFAA0/peter-phan

Attention all Helping Hands volunteers, Catechists, Outreach Eucharistic Ministers, Hospitality volunteers and anyone else who works with children and/or vulnerable adults or hopes to in the future!

           In light of all that has been happening in the church and in the world, the Green Bay Diocese requires all volunteers in our parishes who minister to children and vulnerable adults to undergo VIRTUS, Safe Environment training. This training will help you to have a heightened awareness of what to look for and what and to whom to report any concerns that you might have.  It only needs to be done once in your lifetime, and is accepted throughout the diocese.  

This wonderful program is completely free of charge, and best of all, it is being offered right here at Resurrection Parish, for your convenience, on  Thursday evening, November 29th in the Gathering Area.

To make it even more attractive to you, we will offer Rosemary’s famous taco soup at 5 p.m. for those who can make it,  with the program to begin at 5:30 p.m. We are pleased that the program will be presented by Fr. Bob Kabat of St. Matthew Parish. You must register ahead of time.  This can be done on the diocesan website https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/reg_0.cfm?theme=0. If you have any questions, or would like help registering, please call Roseann Dichraff or Rosemary Baloun at the parish office at 336-7768.
