Congratulations to the parishioners of St. Anthony in Lake Nebagamon on the dedication of their new church! You can watch the live stream of the dedication here. The new church building along with the parish hall that was completed in 2006 will provide parishioners, friends and visitors a beautiful spiritual home for many years to come.
On June 6, 2021 Bishop James P. Powers is lifting the dispensation which excused all of the faithful of the Diocese of Superior from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation. We will begin to modify some of the current policies regarding our liturgical celebrations and parish activities.
You can read the letter in it’s entirety here.

Flowers and other decorations placed in urns or containers built into flush monuments, foot markers or other ground level markers shall be placed and removed in accordance with this same schedule. Flower baskets, urns and other decorations may be mounted on or attached to monuments. Attachments must be secured to the monument and provide a minimum clearance of 12 inches between the ground and the decoration. Artificial flowers must be secure in their containers. Flowers and decorations placed for funeral services will be removed by the Sexton when the flowers fade.The following installations at grave sites WILL NOT be allowed:

As we look through our new building we can see our 121 year old church. It is fitting that we remember the past as we look forward to our new church. We have many memories and special feelings for our old building; we will have them always. At the same time, we look to the future with new memories in our new church. The church is just a building; the people make it a family.
Contributions are still being taken to provide for pews, decorations etc in the new building. Mail to St. Anthony Church PO Box 397, Lake Nebagamon WI 54849 label envelope “new building”
One of the frequent questions that is asked about the new St. Anthony Church is “Will you use the old bell?” Yes! The bell tower is being replicated and the 117 year old bell will “toll” again.
The 600 pound bell was installed in 1903 and the Lake Nebagamon “Enterprise” stated “The new bell is a good thing as it calls on our Catholic friends. reminding them of their Sunday duties.” The bell will remind us once again in 2021 and can be rung at weddings and other events. More of how we are keeping the spirit of the old church alive in future weeks.
Construction on the new building for St. Anthony Lake Nebagamon began on September 8; on Sunday September 13, Father Ricci blessed the construction site.
Enough money has been donated to complete the basic structure but funds are still needed to make the building a “home”. Donations can be sent, in confidence, to St. Anthony Church PO Box 397, Lake Nebagamon WI 54849 labeled “New Church. You can follow our progress here and on our facebook page.
