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.
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
As we enter into cold and flu season, our parishes have made changes to the distribution of Holy Communion to help prevent the spread of illness. The distribution of Holy Communion will be limited to bread alone with only the celebrant and any concelebrants having the chalice. This is a temporary liturgical modification that will be lifted once we are through the cold and flu season.
