Friends of Jesus Ministry

MINISTRY LEAD: Sr. Yvonne Hiess (715) 726-2378

MISSION:  Friends of Jesus is a Christian outreach to adults in our community who are developmentally disabled or handicapped.

INFORMATION FOR THIS MINISTRY:  Friends of Jesus is an ecumenical group, ages 15 and up.  We meet once a month on the last Sunday of the month from 2:00-4:00 pm at Holy Ghost Hall.  It is helpful because of it being wheelchair accessible.  We meet for Christian input, sharing, crafts, songs, celebration of birthdays and socializing.  There is no cost.  Knights of Columbus support us from their Tootsie Roll Fund.  I am the leader, but parents and people from the community come to help each time we meet. We have been meeting for over 20 years.


  • We need people from the community to encourage more people to participate in our program.  Those people that come to participate are not required to be Catholic.
  • Any parishioners are welcome to visit us when our group meets, make a snack for us to share, or just come on a Sunday afternoon to share with our special people.

If you are interested and need more information, talk to Joanne Oleson, Bill Meier, Francis Bohl or Sr. Yvonne.

Thanks in advance for your generous support of this ministry.
