Southwest Wisconsin Catholic Parishes: St. Mary's, Bloomington; St. Charles, Cassville; St. Mary's Help of Christians, Glen Haven & St. John's, Patch Grove
Welcome to our joint parish website!
Since March our lives have been changed in so many ways. However, we need to keep what is important and essential in our lives. Our relationship to God is most essential and the Church guides and supports that relationship with God. With so many uncertainties, I hope and pray your faith and sense of belonging to the Church are a great comfort and support to you and your family as we work our way through these difficult times. Therefore, I want to communicate with everyone how our parishes are moving forward.
Come to Mass
I would like to invite everyone back to MASS. We are using every other pew in all four churches of the cluster. A family can take a whole pew and an individual or couple can have a half pew while maintaining social distance. Until otherwise directed, I will be wearing a face mask for the distribution of communion and parishioners will come forward to receive the holy Eucharist in a single line maintaining social distance. Face masks are optional. We are blessed to have four churches with ample room. I do understand that some individuals and families need to excuse themselves from Mass because of their health concerns and status.
Confession: I am available to hear individual confessions on Mondays at St. Mary’s, Bloomington from 5:00-6:00 p.m. and at St. Charles School Church from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Anointing of the Sick: I will be available as always for the Anointing of the Sick and Last Rites. Please call 994-2526 to receive these sacraments.
Baptism: Please contact me to schedule the baptism of your child at your church and to attend a baptismal preparation session.
