If you or someone you know has lost a spouse, child, parent, family member, or friend, you are likely facing significant challenges, especially as we continue to be bombarded by Covid regulations and isolation! You don't have to go through the GRIEVING PROCESS alone! Grief Support – A Path to Compassionate Healing is a friendly, caring approach of walking alongside others through one of life's most difficult experiences. The next 9-week Grief Support series will be held at Sacred Heart Parish House, 3635 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.

How a former teacher created a help-house for women escaping sex trafficking

Anne Haines, a mother of six adult children and a former Catholic school teacher, is moving to a new home next month. She'll be getting at least six new roommates, all either survivors of sex trafficking or other women trying to help them. This doesn't bother her though, it's a chance to live out a decades-old dream. Haines is moving into the newly-established St. Bakhita Catholic Worker House on North 2nd St. in Milwaukee's Harambee neighborhood.

Thanks to the hard work of many people, including volunteers from St. Francis of Assisi, Catholic Financial Life, and the Family of Four Parishes. The Sr. Thea Bowman House is taking shape. 

Beth Van Gorp, also from MKE Habitat, shared that it “looks like the next volunteer dates will be drywall in November and then painting, flooring and finishing tasks in December/January. We should have the November/ December dates in mid-September.”

Habitat has raised $11,784 out of a goal of $25,000 in conjunction with the Sr. Bowman Catholic House. Thanks for all the hard work.

From Dean Roder: We had another hard-working team drywalling in 90+ temperatures last weekend! We have done just shy of 250 hours already this year and 500 over the past 3 years! Thank you! I am awaiting additional days for St Francis to fill for Sept and/or October and will let you know when I have another date or two.

Habitat is doing a house that's being built by a number of Catholic parishes and some volunteers from the archdiocese (St Francis kind of led the way on this a couple of years ago. We were the only Catholic parish involved). For that house, we can sign up individually to work alongside other parish volunteers.

Please sign up and pass this along to other friends/family who may want to volunteer. Please let me know if you sign up for any days so I can join you if possible!
