Thank You Fr. Avella

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.

2019 Lenten Giving

February 27, 2019 by Heather

This year’s recipient for St. Therese’s Lenten Giving effort is Children’s Hospital Foundation.  The money collected will be used to purchase games and art supplies to provide a tiny distraction to seriously ill children.

Lenten banks and boxes are at the exits.  They can be returned anytime during Lent.  Just put the whole thing in the collection basket.  If you put in a check, please make it out to St. Therese and put Children’s Hospital or Lenten Giving in the memo line.  One check will be sent to the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Even if you are unable to donate, please offer a Lenten prayer for those very sick children, their caregivers, and the people who try to brighten their day with a game or an art project.

The Catholic Church asks each member to preserve the penitential character and purpose of Lent. For this reason:

  • Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and each Friday of Lent.
  • Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday, in addition to abstaining from meat, should fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Hence, on those days they should eat only one full meal. Smaller quantities of food may be taken at two other meals, but no food should be consumed at other times during those two days. The obligation of fasting ceases with the celebration of one’s 59th birthday.

Catholics should not lightly excuse themselves from these prescribed minimal penitential practices.

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.
