Our Diocese is Inspiring Disciples by supporting people in need of Jesus’ love through the Bishop’s Appeal.
The Bishop’s Appeal helps train ministers who bring God’s love to those who are homebound, sick or hospitalized. Children grow in their Faith through Religious Education programs and at Camp Tekakwitha. The Bishop’s Appeal also guides college students and adults through evangelization efforts and Adult Faith Formation programs. Through the Bishop’s Appeal we help form and train ministers through the Emmaus formation program. Many are called to be deacons or lay ministers.
All these people inspire disciples and all receive support through the Bishop’s Appeal.
Please make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal. Help us inspire disciples.

Recently, St. Agnes Parish brought Gail Eichhorn on staff as the Evangelization and Ministries Coordinator. Gail had been working at St. Peter the Fisherman Parish in Two Rivers, and will relocate to Green Bay in late spring.
One of Gail’s responsibilities is to coordinate the parish RCIA and Adult Confirmation Programs. Currently she is working with Sr. Dorothy, who began this year’s program in the interim. The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process by which interested persons can learn more about the Catholic faith in hope of deepening their faith life and responding with a conversion experience.
Typically RCIA runs from fall through Holy Saturday at which time new members are baptized, confirmed and receive Holy Eucharist. RCIA is also for baptized Catholic adults who wish to complete their initiation sacraments by receiving Confirmation, or Eucharist and Confirmation. Another scenario may be adults who have been baptized in another denomination but now wish to become Catholic. These are not re-baptized but brought into full communion through catechizing, Eucharist and Confirmation. The whole process is about meeting people where they are at and bringing them to a conversion experience and into the life of the church.
Gail’s other responsibilities will include becoming our parish Lo-SEC person; sharing in the hospital, nursing home, and short-term homebound visits and being the contact person for our charitable drives like the current Help for the Homeless Hygiene Drive.
“I am very pleased to be a part of St. Agnes Parish, and am so impressed by the many ministries and activities that are happening here; there is literally, something for everyone.”
Inquiries about RCIA or Adult Confirmation may be directed to her through the main office phone number or by email at email@example.com.
For all Catholic Adults (18+) who have not had the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. (Parishioners interested in learning more about their faith are also welcome!) Please join us on Saturdays beginning April 22 after the 4:15 Mass for the Adult Formation Process. Confirmation Mass will be celebrated on Pentecost Weekend
(June 4) at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral.
Contact Gail at the Parish Office (494-2534) for more information and registration.
The parish is grateful at this time for the four individuals participating in our RCIA program.
Remember them in a prayer and that we would all have the desire to learn and grow in our faith by the Lord’s guidance.

What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is an easy way to support our parish every time you shop. In the SCRIP program, you purchase gift cards for local retailers at face value. The cards you purchase are ordered at a reduced price from a supplier. The difference is an instant earning or rebate for our parish.
For SCRIP to benefit our parish, remember to circle "Parishioner" and write "St. Agnes" on the form.
SCRIP may be purchased from 3:00-3:30 pm in the Social Hall on days when school is in session and in the narthex following the 4:15 pm mass on Saturday and from 9:00-11:00 am on Sunday.
