The Changing Face of Parish Life in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee

February 15, 2019 by Heather

You Are Invited To: The Changing Face of Parish Life in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee

On Sunday, March 10th, join us for 9:00am Mass, followed by a presentation by Fr. Steven Avella titled, “The Changing Face of Parish Life in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee” at 10:30AM in Heck Hall. Coffee and continental breakfast will be provided. This free event is sponsored by St. Therese Parish. All Are Welcome!

Fr. Steven Avella, a local church historian, will discuss the history of parishes in the archdiocese. Founded for a variety of reasons: population centers, ethnicity, race, and the efforts of religious communities, Milwaukee’s Catholic parishes reflect the diversity of Catholic life over the years. The history of St. Therese Parish, as a ministry of the Pallottines, will also be included.

Fr. Steven Avella, is a priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and a professor of history at Marquette University. He has written histories of the archdiocese, the Salvatorian community, and various other dioceses throughout the US. His most recent book was a study of the history of the Diocese of Des Moines, Iowa.

Those coming just for the presentation can enter through the set of double glass doors by the parish office after 10:00AM.

Please direct any questions to Heather Goeden in the St. Therese Parish Office at (414) 771-2500 x2 or heather@sttheresemke.org.
