An important message from our pastor and business manager on how St. Mary and St. John the Baptist are handling the COVID-19 Crisis:
Please note: Under the state's "Essential Services" order, churches are permitted to remain open while continuing to follow the 10 person limit with practicing "physical distancing". In order for us to better manage keeping the church space sanitized for visitors, Parish Leadership has decided that for public health and safety it is best that only one church site remain open during this COVID-19 outbreak.
St. Mary will remain open Monday through Fridays 11am - 1:00pm.
Daily Mass (Tues - Fri) and Sunday Mass (9am) will be live-streamed in case anyone wants to check in on "Virtual Jesus". The Sacrament of Reconciliation is still being offered at St. Mary on the following days and times:
Tuesday & Friday: 7:45-8:00 am – Church open for prayer 7-8am
Wednesday & Thursday: 7:00-7:20 am – Church open for prayer 6:45-7:20am
At St. Mary the "Link" door is the only door that is being used to enter church. Please sit in designated areas so they can be cleaned regularly.
Please practice physical distancing, limit the number in church to 10 and hand sanitizer is available for your use.
On behalf of our Pastor and parish staff, God Bless you and keep you safe and we look forward to gathering again as a parish family.
Until then, Strive to be God’s light in a suffering world.
You are invited and encouraged to make a Spiritual Communion.
Update Sunday, March 22, 2020
We would love to improve our communication with you. We encourage you to download our Parish App. It will allow us to keep in touch and send important parish notifications. We want to use this NEW communication method to reach our SM/SJ Parish Family. Contact us with any questions regarding this communication platform! Our goal is to stay connected as much as possible through the COVID-19 crisis to support our Parish family. Stay tuned for more details and be well! 🙏
Update Friday March 20, 2020:
This message is coming in hopes that you are well, and know we are praying for all of you daily.
The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. He guides me in right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil; for you are at my side. With your rod and your staff that give me courage.
The information below will remain in effect until March 31, 2020 unless directed to do otherwise from the Diocese or the state or federal government.
The combined Parish Councils met last night to discuss how we can all remain safe and not put anyone in harm’s way as we deal with COVID-19. It was unanimously decided that we will close the parish office to all non-employees effective immediately. The parish hours will still remain 8:00am until 3:30pm Monday thru Friday, but we will not be allowing anyone to enter the parish office. Please know that we are here to help in any way possible as we adapt to doing our normal jobs supporting you in a different way. We must abide by the 10 person rule and physical distancing at all times at the parish office and church.
The vestibule area will be open during these hours, and we will be communicating with visitors through the monitor located at the door to the parish office.
We have installed a locked drop box for you to put any confidential items such as church envelopes.
We have installed an information rack where we will have the weekly bulletin, Scrip forms and other communications
All these areas will be disinfected daily.
Know that we will be using precautionary steps for everyone’s safety (gloves, anti-bacterial solution, washing hands, etc.)
The ways we will be communicating with you will primarily be through Facebook - @MenashaCatholicParishes, our parish Website: menashacatholicparishes.org and email.
Our staff on site may be limited, but we are still able to be reached by phone or email. Staff members who may be working from home will still be responding to voicemail and email. All voicemails received are directed to the staff email.
-Answers to questions you may have:
Will you still be able to purchase Scrip? Yes, we would ask you to please call ahead to place your order. We will have your Scrip order ready when you arrive. Please identify yourself when you arrive and we will go through the order with you in detail so we know we have given you everything you ordered. The individual at the front desk will be wearing gloves and will come to the door after they verify the order. They will ask for your payment, and will then exchange it with the Scrip at the door. If you don’t call ahead, we have a table and Scrip forms in the vestibule.
Will you still be able to make your Parish Support payments? Yes, we have installed a locked drop box in the vestibule of the parish office for you to make your payments. You also have the ability to pay online through WeShare, click on the “Secure Online Giving” link on our parish website.
Will you be able to make Mass intentions? At this time we are not accepting any Mass intentions until our Mass schedule resumes.
Will you still be able to purchase the $25,000 Cash Raffle Tickets? Yes, we encourage you to purchase these through WeShare, but you will also be able to purchase them in the parish office. We will take your information through the intercom, and then give you the ticket(s) at the door for you to complete at the table in the vestibule.
At this point the Holy Week and Easter Masses have been cancelled, but will be live streamed. We are discussing how to get you Blessed palms on Palm Sunday.
We encourage you to bookmark our website and check it often. Also Like and Follow our Facebook page for current announcements and uplifting messages. Finally, as we cannot be together in person as a parish family, we can be a virtual parish family as we watch our Pastor shepherd us as he offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Our normal daily Masses are being live streamed on Facebook. We will also be livestreaming one Sunday Mass at 9am. These Masses are being said in the Marietta Chapel at St. Mary. “Like” and “Follow” our Facebook page and you will be notified when we go “Live”
Please make it a point to watch our daily and Sunday Masses as they are livestreamed on Facebook and then saved on our website for you to view at any time. And remember while you cannot physically receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, you can make a Spiritual Communion at the same time.
Due to the limitation on the numbers of people, physical distancing and proper sanitization, we have decided to stop the collection of any rummage sale items at this time.
Please continue to pray the Prayer to St Joseph daily. He was the protector of the Virgin Mary and Jesus and we pray for his powerful intercession to protect our families and us. Through prayer we will endure these difficult times we are living.

March 18, 2020:
From Our Pastor;
In these trying times it’s vital we remember that God is in control and will bless and protect us if we turn to Him. While the public celebration of the Holy Mass may be suspended, our daily Mass will be live streamed on Facebook at 8:10 am on Tuesday and Friday, and at 7:30 am on Wednesday and Thursday. Sunday Mass will be streamed at 9:00 am. These will also be posted and can be watched at anytime on Facebook. The link will also be posted on our parish website where you can click and watch so you can participate anytime.. Facebook and our Website will be our primary means of communication during this time. Please “like” and follow our Facebook page and bookmark our website: menashacatholicparishes.org.
Also, Relevant Radio offers a daily 12:00 Noon Mass, which is broadcast live on 1050 AM, on the Relevant Radio® app, at relevantradio.com. The Mass is also rebroadcast each evening at 7:30 PM on 1050 AM.
And in lieu of the cancellation, Local 5 (WFRV) will be broadcasting a 30-minute Mass celebrated by Bishop Ricken each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. on-air and online.
United with our Holy Father Pope Francis, let us pray in solidarity for our brothers and sisters here and around the world who are sick. Let us pray for those who have lost loved ones to this virus. May God console them and grant them peace.
We pray also for doctors, nurses, and caregivers, for public health officials and all civic leaders. May God grant them courage and prudence as they seek to respond to this emergency with compassion and in service to the common good.
In this time of need, all the faithful need to seek together the maternal intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and we share this prayer with you:
Please continue to check our Website and Facebook page for continued updates regarding our Parishes and the response to the coronavirus pandemic.
