Thank you, Jacquie Nook, for supplying us with these great pics of this year’s variety show. It was a wonderful line up of acts, and a good time was enjoyed by all. Thank you to all the parishioners and volunteers who helped make this show a success. Thank you, especially, to Tom Ratkowski for all the hard and creative work he did to launch this show. You’re the best.
During March, the St. Therese Green Team will be hosting a series of workshops to enable parishioners to become more active in leading a “sustainable” life. Learn how to shed carbon pounds and then act on those methods as part of your Lenten journey this year. The workshops are March 1, March 8, March 15, and March 22 at 7:00pm-8:30pm in Miriam’s Corner. Mike Arney of “Green Neighbor” will be our coordinator. Contact Elterine (Dusty) at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 414-771-2500 X15 to register.
On October 5th, the Saint Therese Sunday Choir and the choirs of St. Vincent Pallotti and Sacred Heart Croatian will join together in prayer and song to pray for peace. Join us at Sacred Heart Croatian Parish, 917 North 49th St. in Milwaukee, at 7:00pm. Let us pray for peace in our hearts, in our parishes, in our communities, and in our world.
The weekend of October 1st & 2nd, we will be celebrating the feast of our patron saint, St. Therese of Lisieux. Join us for hospitality after each mass as we share our thankfulness for all the “Little Ways” we have been blessed and will continue to be blessed.
Here are some pictures that Teri Wissing took of the Blessing of the Trees and picnic lunch, June 5, 2011. Thank you all, who made it such a wonderful experience.
