Thank you Fr. Avella

Fr. Steven Avella, professor of history at Marquette University and priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, spoke with St. Therese parishioners on March 10th, 2019. He explained how parishes formed in the 1800’s and then traced the growth of Catholicism in Wisconsin. He shared how the formation of St. Therese Parish fit in with secular and church history. Of his historical work he says, that we “should be interested in those on whose shoulders we stand.”

As we celebrate the 175th Anniversary of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee this year, we are invited to think about setting our feet firmly in our Catholic faith, so others can stand on our shoulders.
