Lenten Almsgiving Project
This Lent, our family of four parishes partnered with Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity with the goal of raising $50,000. In our giving, we join in their mission: “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.” It’s not too late to give! Make checks payable to “Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity” and place in the collection basket or drop them off in the parish office. You may also make an online donation at http://milwaukeehabitat.org/donate/give-online/ (please add “Family of Four Parishes” in the comment section). Contact Pastoral Associate of Formation and Justice, Chad Griesel, at gro.l1556137694imhcr1556137694a@cle1556137694seirg1556137694 or 414-271-6180 with any questions.
Our Habitat for Humanity home build with Dedra and Carson will begin May 11th. Please prayerfully consider giving generously of your time. Everyone 16 years and older is invited to volunteer and no experience is necessary; Habitat for Humanity provides leadership and guidance for everything. There are many dates to choose from to volunteer and this will be a great chance to build community with our parishioners, serve our neighbors, and have fun along the way! To volunteer:
