Keeping Christmas full of faith

You will find area pastors in Door and Kewaunee counties helping people remember the reason for the season. According to Lifeway Research, six out of ten Americans will find a pew this Christmas and attend services. Of the Americans not attending church their year, 57 percent said they would attend Christmas services if invited.


Pastor Daniel Schuster of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Luxemburg and Holy Trinity Church in Casco evoked the words of Mother Theresa when speaking about filling your heart full of faith this holiday season.

Pastor Jim Honig of Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay is happy to welcome more people to their services after running an altered schedule for the last two years due to the pandemic.

Pastor Matthew Sprunger of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Kewaunee says Christmas represents a promise kept by God.

Pastor Joel McKenney of Algoma’s St. Paul’s Lutheran Church hopes those who hear his message find something good during a time that is anything but that for some people.

Most churches offer multiple opportunities to attend services on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion will continue its tradition of being one of the few churches in the region offering a true Midnight Mass.
