St. Mary and St. John the Baptist Catholic Parishes of Menasha are linked parishes under the care of our Pastor Rev. Paul Paider. We are excited to offer two of our weekend masses
“ad orientem”. Father Paider offers Mass facing the same direction as the people, because he and the people together are offering worship and sacrifice to God. He is not turning his back on the people to exclude them. Rather, as a Christian community, all are facing ad orientem (i.e. toward the east) waiting in joyful expectation for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. All of the prayers are in English, while some of the mass parts may be in Latin.
