We were notified Sunday, January 24, that Fr. Bob Karuhn has tested positive for COVID-19. In light of diocesan protocol, Sr. Marla Clercx was tested on the 24th and also received a positive COVID-19 result. Both Fr. Bob and Sr. Marla are isolating and are self-monitoring until they are no longer able to spread COVID-19 to others. They are cooperating fully with local health officials in the tracing process. If you are experiencing any symptoms, please contact your medical provider and consider being tested. We will continue to strongly encourage everyone to take the precautions of wearing masks, observing social distancing, frequent hand hygiene, and sanitizing and disinfecting common areas and high-touch surfaces. Please keep Fr. Bob and Sr. Marla in your prayers for their return to health.
Staff are working from home as much as possible, but responses may be delayed. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
You do NOT need to sign up for an account with Faith Direct in order to purchase tickets. However, they will ask you if you’d like to do so. We encourage giving to our parish family through Faith Direct as it provides us with a more consistent and predictable stream of income which also helps with budgeting.

A welcome message from Sr. Marla Clercx
Sister Marla Clercx, ANG, is our Pastoral Leader. She served as Pastoral Leader at St. John, Gillett; St. Michael, Suring; and the Chapel at Chute Pond. As a highly respected leader in our diocese, she brings a new dimension of pastoral care and vision to our faith community.
Fr. Bob Karuhn is our Priest Celebrant. He presides at two of our weekend Masses and two weekday Masses. Father was ordained a priest in 1965. He started out at UW-Oshkosh with the intent of obtaining a secondary education degree, but he heeded God’s persistent call to the priesthood during one of his summer breaks. He talked to his pastor and changed course attending Sacred Heart Minor Seminary in Oneida and then St. Francis Seminary in Milwaukee. Father retired from full-time, active ministry in 2010 with his last appointment being Pastor at Sacred Heart Parish in Appleton for 11 years. Since retirement, he’s been helping out in parishes. Fr. Bob enjoys horses, horseback riding, and getting together with friends to play cards.
