From The Pastor’s Desk
We’ve received word from Fr. Kevin that he made it safely to his new home and that school is off to a good start. Please continue to pray for him. We know he’ll do well. It’s been a joy having Fr. Britto here at the parish with us. He’s settled in and gotten right to work.
In the spring, I advertised a Holy Land Pilgrimage to Israel and Jordan in January, 2017, that I will be leading, along with a priest from Kenosha. Thus far, we have 26 participants registered. If you're still thinking that you might like to join us, there is still time to join the group. Should you like a brochure or more information, please contact me at the parish office.
The Annual Seminary Dinner, to support the men in formation for the priesthood in Milwaukee, will be held on Friday, September 23, at the convention center downtown. It’s a chance to support our future priests and especially our own seminarian, Jonathon Schmeckel. Last year, we organized a table from St. Alphonsus and had a great time. If you’d like to join Fr. Britto and me, along with your fellow parishioners, please let me know. Tickets for the fundraiser are $150.00 per person.
Preparations for the new school year are well underway. Our staff has been working hard to be ready to welcome the students back to the parish school next week. It promises to be a great year.
Next weekend, we welcome our annual missionary appeal speaker, who is a member of the Divine Word Missionaries. We are pleased to welcome Fr. Mattheus Ro to St. Alphonsus Parish.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
-Fr. Aaron Esch, Pastor
