Weekly Reflections by Joseph Zenk, Parish Director

This coming Tuesday, Jan. 22, marks the

40 th anniversary of the United States Supreme

Court ruling on Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion

within our country. Bishop Ricken has written a

column on it to be placed in this week’s diocesan

newspaper, The Compass. I also felt it would be

good for you to hear. So the following are the

words of Bishop Ricken:

Clarity and Compassion

This year is the 40th anniversary of the Roe versus

Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

Since this decision, over 53 million children have

lost their lives. The untold damage to their families

is often suffered in silence with many negative

repercussions emotionally, spiritually and sometimes

even physically.

The death penalty is still "rigorously defended by

many." Euthanasia is becoming more

widespread and seen as a solution to old age and

poor health and human embryonic stem cell research

is being used to destroy human embryos to find

medical solutions to maladies of others.

Brothers and sisters, the culture of death that Pope

John Paul spoke about so vociferously seems to be

gaining ground. Pope Benedict is defending life so

clearly by making it clear that if we exclude God

from our lives, we will destroy ourselves entirely.

The natural right to life is safeguarded by our

Constitution and ought to be protected by our

laws because life is a right given by the Creator

that no law should contradict.

We have been through a journey of 40 years,

wandering in the desert of more and more assaults

on life. This attitude of anti-life is so pervasive

that the weak of mind do not make a distinction

between reality and violent video games that

annihilate others with very violent means. Once

the culture of death takes over, what is the

difference between killing the innocent ones

inside the womb and those outside the womb?

Brothers and sisters, we have a lot of soul searching

to do and repentance to engage in. When Pope

Benedict launched the Year of Faith last October,

he "spoke of the grave difficulties of our time and

the need for the Church to lead people out of the

desert and clasp sinners to its bosom." The Pope

called for "authentic conversion and witness to

charity so the Church might be the visible community

of God's mercy." May the Dear Lord forgive us!

Readings for the Week

Monday Heb 5:1-10/Mk 2:18-22

Tuesday Heb 6:10-20/Mk 2:23-28

Wednesday Heb 7:1-3, 15-17/Mk 3:1-6

Thursday Heb 7:25-8:6/Mk 3:7-12

Friday Acts 22:3-16/Mk 16:15-18

Weekend Neh 8:2-4a, 5-6, 8-10/1 Cor 12:12-30

Lk 1:1-4; 4:14-21

Join us next week as our readings’ focus is: “The

fulfillment of God’s word is cause for rejoicing.” The

word of God provides instruction, challenge, and

promise for all who believe. As we receive God’s

word, we must be open to all that it holds for us.

We are called to rejoice that we possess God’s word,

follow it, and have it fulfilled in our lives.

Divine Savior School News

The 2nd and 3rd grade students have

been a bit 'buggy' lately! They have just

started an Einstein science unit on bugs.

Throughout this unit the children use

the scientific method to learn about

various worms and bugs.

The hands on experiences allow them

to use their skills of observation, to

collect and record data, and to make

hypotheses about those observations.

The children can't wait to 'dig in' when it

is time for science.

There is always something new happening at our

Elementary Campus. Call our Main Office (898-

4210) for more information or to schedule a tour of

our classrooms, or visit us during Catholic Schools’

Week (Jan. 27- Feb. 1).

Knowing your limitations spawns humility,

Make a Gift through an IRA Charitable Rollover

Normally, a distribution from your IRA is taxed as

ordinary income. However, recently enacted,

“fiscal cliff” tax legislation extends a charitable

giving opportunity throughout 2013 for individuals

70½ or older. Through 2013, you may continue

to make a direct distribution from your IRA to a

qualified charity, such as your parish, the

Bishop’s Appeal, the Catholic Foundation, or

another diocesan institution. Such qualified

direct distributions to charity from your IRA are

not subject to income tax. The new law also

provides that you may consider such distributions

made in January 2013 as if made in 2012. In

addition, the new law provides a special election

available to individuals who took a distribution

from their IRA after November 30, 2012 and

before January 1, 2013 and who make a gift to a

qualified charity before February 1, 2013. Such

individuals may treat the gift as an IRA charitable

rollover, even though the distribution was not

directly made from the IRA to charity.

For more information about how you and the

Church can benefit from an IRA charitable rollover,

contact your tax preparer, your parish

office or the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese

of Green Bay at 920-272-8173; or e-mail at

Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

vol·un·teer—Noun: A person who freely offers to take part

We will be honoring the many volunteers that help make

our faith community at SS. Peter & Paul so special by giving

freely of their time and talents.

If you volunteer in any way for SS. Peter & Paul, you are

invited to join us on Saturday, February 2, 2013, beginning

Please sign up on the sheet by January 26 in back of church

so we know how many to plan for.

Catechist Needed

As baptized members of the Body of Christ, we are called to

participate in building up the Kingdom of God. Our Faith

Formation program offers you opportunities to do just that!

Please look into your heart and answer God’s call to feed his

sheep. We are in need of catechists for the freshman class,

teaching the sacraments for the second semester.

Contact Mary Jo Meyer (894-7210) for more information.


A special “thank you” to all who helped make our church

environment so beautiful for the Advent & Christmas season,

and to those who helped take the decorations down and put

away. We greatly appreciate all of you!!

Blessings, Julie Kraus & Lynne Becker


Ministry Schedules

The new ministry schedules are done and if you provided

the parish office with an email address it has been sent to

you via email. If not, the schedules can be found in the back

of church. If you’d like to receive them via email, or if you

did not receive one, please contact the office.

Student Offering Envelopes

KN through high school juniors students received their student

offering envelopes at class on Wednesday. If they did not pick

them up after class, they can be found on a table in Voland

Hall. Divine Savior School students received their envelopes

through the school. High school seniors do not receive student

envelopes and are encouraged to contact the rectory office if

they wish to become adult members of the parish.

Everything we have is a gift from God. Students are encouraged

to give a gift each week to the God who has been so generous

to them.

If your child did not receive envelopes and would like them,

please contact the rectory office.


Baptism is the first of the seven sacraments by which one

becomes a member of the Church and a new creation in

Christ. We welcome Easton James into our Christian family

today. Easton is the son of Angie (Cole) and Chad Koeck. We

congratulate them and pray he may live and grow in the

knowledge of Christ’s love.
