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.
This year’s theme is Together in Mission…Alive in Hope! The Catholic Services Appeal provides annual funding for over 36 programs, services, and ministries that are vital to every parish. All families are encouraged to support the Catholic Services Appeal with a prayerful gift.
First Communion at Cathedral of Christ the King will be celebrated on the parents choice of Wednesday, August 19 or Wednesday, August 26 at 6:00 pm. More information will be coming to parents from the Religious Ed. department or from Cathedral School.
May God change all our hearts, allowing us to recognize, cherish, and defend the dignity of every human life, for everyone is made in the image and likeness of God and deserves to live free from fear and harm.

Please read this letter about reopening our churches for live Masses starting the weekend of June 6th and 7th, 2020. We are instituting a number of new practices and Mass may look very different. May this time become a rich opportunity for all of us to become kinder, more caring and gentler with one another. We are in this together; may we work together for the common good of all.
Beginning Sunday, May 24th, Catholics in our cluster who wish to receive Holy Communion may come to the Cathedral and follow the strict guidelines set forth by Bishop Powers. These Communion Services will be followed until Bishop is confident that we can have Mass in a way that is both reverent and safe.
Please note: The dispensation given by Bishop Powers from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass is still in effect
I am pleased to announce that this year’s Lumen Christi Award recipient is Eugene McGillis. A native son of Superior, Gene has strong ties to both the Cathedral Parish and St. Anthony, Lake Nebagamon parish.
Normally we would celebrate Gene’s life
with our annual Award Dinner on the Friday before Memorial Day Weekend;
unfortunately, like so many other events, we have had to cancel the dinner this
year because of COVID-19.
Our plan is to honor Gene next year in
May 2021 at the Lumen Christi Award Dinner, along with the current year’s
recipient. If you know Gene, please feel
free to drop him a note, give him a call, or congratulate him on Facebook. His service to the Church and our community
offer us all a fitting example of the Light of Christ!
May all of us continue to be inspired by
the many examples of faith and compassion that we are witnessing in the face of
this pandemic. While it is a difficult
time, it does provide us all with rich opportunities to reflect on our lives
and make changes that bring us closer to the Lord and one another.
I urge us all to continue to pray for
our world as we confront COVID-19.
