Welcome

Welcome to St. Raymond of Peñafort Parish, Fall Creek Wisconsin!  

A little about us

Since our beginning, we have grown steadily and now number over 340 families. We are located on 40 acres of beautiful, rolling land that has been owned by the church for 150 years. As a parish that primarily serves the small towns and rural areas of southern Eau Claire and northern  Trempealeau counties, we place great importance on neighborliness,  respect, and service to others. Visitors to our parish often comment on our relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Please make good use of our website and, if you’re ever in West Central  Wisconsin or Southern Eau Claire County, please stop in for a visit and a  tour! We love to have guests join us for Sunday Mass and the many other  activities that take place throughout the year. We trust you’ll be so impressed after one visit that you’ll want to come back again!

As you explore our site, you’ll see that we are a vibrant and active parish. 

Forty Hours of Adoration Nov. 1-3

Our country is in great need of prayer! There will be a special 40 Hours Adoration for America devotion beginning at 3:00 on Sunday November 1. Prayer warriors are needed beginning at 3:00 praying continuously until 7:45 on Tuesday. At that time there will be Benediction and Mass to start our country’s election day!

**If the sign up is full, no worries you are still welcome to come pray! The sign up is here to ensure that there is always someone present in front of the blessed sacrament.

Spiritual Communion

Until you are once again able to go to communion in person, please take the time to make a spiritual communion, praying for all the same blessings and graces from the Lord. You can use these or similar words:

Lord Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. I profess that Holy Communion feeds me with your flesh and blood, heals me of my spiritual sickness, and gives me ever deeper life as a member of your Body, united with the men and women of every time and place who share in this great Communion.

Even if I cannot at this time receive you sacramentally, I desire deeply to receive you into my heart and to be received into your Sacred Heart. I long to be fully alive as a member of your Body, intimately close to you and to all the other members, with whom I am called to share eternal life.

Jesus, I confess that my heart sometimes resists this great Communion of Love. I recognize that your Love, Jesus, is infinitely greater than my own, and I beg you for the freedom and courage to be plunged into the great ocean of your Love. Lead me ever more deeply into the union that you have with your Father, and which you so deeply desire to share with each and all of us. Help me to set aside my self-reliance and self-protection and allow my heart to be transformed by your Love today.

Jesus, I also confess and recognize that my heart sometimes resists Communion with the other members of your Body, especially those who have harmed me, those who do not understand me, those whom I do not understand, those who disagree with me, or those who are different from me. I renew my commitment to be one with each and all of them in your great Love.

Jesus, Divine Physician, heal whatever in my heart blocks out this great Communion.

Jesus, Shepherd of Souls, lead me to good pastures, and nourish me with the strength I need today. Lead me to living waters and help me to drink deeply from this saving stream that brings such great gladness. May my soul never stop hungering and thirsting for union with you until the day when we are all perfectly united in your Love, and you become All in All.

Amen.
