Congratulations to the young people who received the Sacrament of Confirmation at the 10:30 Mass last Sunday. Fr. Mike is pictured with them and their director, Gino, who is pictured to the far right. The young adults are members of Stritch and Marquette Universities and needed to receive the sacrament before Stritch University closes next week. We offer them our prayers.

Prof. Anne Bonds, associate professor of geography at UWM, and Prof. Derek Handley, assistant professor of English, lead an on-going research project, “Mapping Racism and Resistance in Milwaukee County.” Their project involves regular folks helping to comprehensively document all racial covenants in Milwaukee County. Each racial covenant needs to be verified by at least 5 people to confirm its racial language. These verified covenants will then be added to a map. Their team hosts community workshops to discuss racial covenants, their role in racially segregating Milwaukee County, and the specific steps involved in being a volunteer.
On April 29th, alumni of St. Lawrence Seminary helped to prepare the grounds for springtime. Tim Kell, a St. Francis parishioner [pictured here], was one of the main organizers of the event. We thank them for their service and help, even in the rain!
