Winter Item Collection

With winter soon upon us, the Human Concerns Committee would like to promote the collection of winter items benefiting homeless through the Cappuchin Community Services (formerly House of Peace and St. Ben’s Meal) in Milwaukee. Cappuchin Community Services continues to serve the homeless in Milwaukee by providing clothing, food pantry, meals, and personal products as well as guidance to improve their lives.

For the clothing drive, the greatest needs are men’s hats, gloves, underwear, socks (size large), gently used or new winter coats/jackets, warm sweatshirts, sweaters, blankets/ quilts and sleeping bags. The need for women’s items is less but still very much appreciated.

If you choose to participate, please bring these items to the Gathering Space Sept. 14 to 22. As always, we thank you for your generosity. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Murphy at (262) 673-9486.

GoFundMe for new St. Kilian playground 

 

The Chris and Laurie Johnson Family have generously offered to match funds for a new playground at St. Kilian. Their son, Logan, tragically passed away while in 2nd grade at St. Kilian School. Logan loved school as well as playing on the playground. They would like to give back to the school by assisting with the donations for a new playground. The Johnson Family will match funds up to $5,000 for a total of $10,000 in donations. A rendering of what the playground looks like can be found in the Gathering Space. Donations can be made online: https://www.gofundme.com/f/st-kilian-playground

Donations may also be sent to the Parish or School Office with “Playground Donation” written in the note/memo section.

CATECHISTS NEEDED!


Are you looking for a way to be more involved in Faith Formation and Religious Education? Do you want to share our love of Christ with others? Are you feeling called to serve the St. Kilian or St. John parishes?

Volunteer catechists (religion teachers) are the heart of our growing programs.

We are in need of additional catechists for our next formation year. Enthusiastic catechists enable us to keep class sizes small and offer multiple sections of each grade. 

We are currently looking for catechists for groups on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, as well as office aides, hall and door monitors, and some classroom aides. 

You can visit with members of the catechist team or Religious Ed Committee to learn more about this amazing team.

To volunteer with St. John Parish call Bill Thimm at (262) 673- 6788

To volunteer with St. Kilian Congregation call Dennis Vlasak at (262) 673-4831 ext. 406 or send him an e-mail message: dre@stkiliancong.org

2019 Catholic Stewardship Appeal

The Appeal provides Catholics in the ten-county Archdiocese of Milwaukee opportunities to support a wide range of ministries and programs that benefit more than 500,000 people each year.  As Disciples of Christ, and in communion with Him, we respond to the call of helping our brothers and sisters in His name.  There is no better, more convenient way to participate in making lives better than through the Appeal.

 

The 2019 Appeal campaign video, Amazing Grace, can be found by clicking here.  It provides a small but powerful glimpse of how Catholic lives are changed for the better!

 

Please use the form mailed to you, and please give as generously as you are able.  Thank you!
