Students in Middle/High School and Adult Volunteers: Help yourself by helping others. Join other youth from Rhinelander on Tuesday, July 10th and Wednesday, July 11th as we head to Nativity in Rhinelander for the 4th Annual Food Fast. We will be participating in various 2 hour service projects in the morning and afternoon, and join in Homeless Box-Out overnight (if we have enough chaperones and you wish to). Cost is $35.00 to cover supplies, gas to service sites, snacks, and a T-shirt. We are able to participate in all or part of the project. Fasting is not required unless individuals wish to with adult permission.
Please use the days before the event to raise money to help those we serve. A scavenger list will be sent to those who register to gather items needed by our friends in desperate situations.
Some of the service sites will be the Nativity Thrift Store, New Dawn Crisis Pregnancy Center, NATH Frederick Place Shelter, Rhinelander Food Pantry, Community Gardens, Kids in the Neighborhood, Rhinelander Parks, and Headwaters, Inc. If we have enough drivers, we will be able to schedule service projects in Wausau as well.
If you have questions or to request a permission form, lease contact Jody Scherwinski at 715-292-8791. Text or leave a message!
If you have a child going into grades 1-12, check out this faith opportunity! Information and registration is in the PDF below!

Period of Purple Crying Caps: Purple Crying Caps is a grass-roots campaign to create public awareness about what is known as the “period of purple crying,” which occurs in infants from 2 weeks to 5 months of age, in an effort to try to prevent abuse from shaken baby syndrome.
Their goal is to distribute a purple cap to every newborn baby at participating hospitals during the month of November. Caps need to be made with a soft washable yarn. Any shade of purple can be used. They request that caps do not have pompoms or any type of strap. If you would like to learn more, go to: www.clickforbabies.org. On Facebook: Facebook.com/PurpleCrying.
Caps can be knit, crochet, or made on a loom. They can be made in any color (the purple will be used during the month of November). Colored hats are used for all other months.
Caps are being collected at St. Anthony Parish Office and at the Park Falls Library.
Patterns and samples are available at the St. Anthony parking lot entrance.
Purple caps will be taken to area hospitals in mid-October.
SDCCW Convention: Five members of St. Anthony's Council of Catholic Women recently attended a joint convention of the CCW's of the Superior Diocese and the Duluth Diocese held in Duluth, Mn. This is the first time a joint convention between the two dioceses was held. A Mass was celebrated by Bishop Paul Sirba of Duluth with Bishop James Powers as the homilist. The event was well attended by many women of both dioceses. Bishop Powers was kind enough to pose for this photo with the St. Anthony's ladies.
