The Northern Lakes Catholic Communities' Discipleship Committee is made up of volunteers from each of the five parishes. These volunteers have a love for Chirst and their faith, and want to continue to grow in both. The Discipleship Committee is working hard to bring adult faith formation opportunities to our Northwoods.
Through these opportuniites, adults in our community will not only grow closer together as a faith community but also develop a deeper, more intentional relationship with Christ.
Many folks had questions about previous talks from Vicki Thorn when she was here. Although she has since passed away, her work remains. Here are a few of her talks from previous years and a link to her facebook page.
Start your day with the Rosary!
There is a Rosary Teleconference every Thursday at 7:25 a.m. This time of prayer is organized by some folks at St. Albert and St. Mary's, contact the office if you would like to begin your day praying the rosary with others!
The Women’s Over 50 Spirituality Group (we should change the group name as everyone is over 70!) meets monthly on the third Thursday at 1 pm at St. Peter's to discuss and share the blessings and burdens of aging and the related impact on one’s spirituality. We recognize that our faith journey changes as we move through life ages and stages. This group is suited best for those wanting to explore the unique gifts the years bring.
We have used books addressing various related topics, which we read from when together and usually prompts deep sharing. Our current book is Let This Be the Time, Spiritual Essentials for Life’s Second Act, by Sr. Janet Schaeffler, OP. There is no required reading between meetings, and newcomers do not need the book to participate. One book can last us several months or more as we enjoy conversation and fellowship.
Please consider joining us!
How can I learn more about my faith
and become the man I should to be?
The good news is there are other men who are working on becoming better men, better husbands, better fathers, and striving to live a holy life. These men are taking the time to learn more about Jesus and his Church, and working on becoming the man God is calling them to be. These men are your brothers in faith and are here to support you on the journey to heaven. Consider spending some time with these men and getting to know them a little better.
The Men’s Group meets on and off throughout the year on Wednesday mornings at 6:30am at St Theresa’s. Watch for information in the bulletin. All men are welcome.
Each Wednesday at 10 am via zoom, we will have fellowship and take time to unpack the readings for the upcoming weekend. Please join us as often as you are able! Hope to see you soon!

This podcast is hosted by five priests out of the Denver area and is a “lighthearted exploration of various prominent and obscure Catholic topics.”
These are the homilies of Father David Neuschwander, the Associate Pastor at the Cluster Parishes of Holy Rosary (Medford) and Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Whittlesey) in Northeastern Wisconsin.
Fr. David was ordained a priest on June 1st, 2014 at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior, Wisconsin.
“Fr. Andrew Ricci, a priest of the Diocese of Superior, offers inspirational podcasts of homilies and talks given from a variety of pastoral settings. Fr. Andrew is currently the rector of the Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior, WI.”
