  • We Need to Hear From You!

    All Catholic parishes in the Diocese of Madison will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute.

    Please help your parish by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online. The survey can be accessed through an online link from October 14 to November 22 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on your parish’s efforts to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and your parish will only receive information about the community as whole. The individual links for each parish can be found below. Please make sure you access the survey through your own parish's link!

    We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to your pastor and your various parish ministries to plan for the future. Results of the survey will be available this winter at which time your parish will share what they have learned with the entire community.

    Thank you for helping with this important project!



    Mass Attendance

    Dear Parishioners, as we try to navigate through these tough times, we pray that you are healthy and doing well, but most of all that your spiritual health is better. More than physical heatlh, which is a good and important value, is not as necessary as spiritual health. By that it is meant that we always have to try to be in the state of grace, meaning, in freindship with God. Mortal or serious sin destroys grace in the soul and renders a soul incapable of salvation. So if by the time of our death we find oursselves lacking the grace of God, his life and friendship in our souls, we will not enter heaven. What is serious or mortal sin? Is the sin that kills our friendship with God. Exmaples are: missing or skipping Mass on Sundays or Holy Days of Obligation (like Christmas or every Sunday), fornication, living together with a girlfriend or boyfriend without getting married, use of porn and masturbation, etc. There is an extended list but these are common ones that people often committ and do not go to Confession or repente from them. Also, the church asks each Catholic to go to confession at least once a year. If we haven't gone to Confession in more than a year then we are in the state of mortal sin and if we die in that state we will not enter heaven. So I ask you, if you have not been to Confession, which the Lord gave us as a gift to recover our friendship with him, please go. You can go anywhere you want as far as a Catholic parish or church goes but go.
