Pastor's Message:
Enjoy Summer as a Gift from the Almighty

Summer in Wisconsin is out of this world! It’s one of the best parts of God’s creation. So enjoy summer as a gift from the Almighty. The sunshine and warm breezes, the thunderstorms and tomatoes, the convertibles and motorcycles, the beach and the backyard patio, the golf and the gardening. All these make summer in Wisconsin unbeatable.

Summer is a great time for learning. Study the stars; learn about the birds in your yard; try a new recipe; take up a new hobby.

Summer is for reading. Find a good book on the subject you love the most. Indulge in a novel.

Summer is for being outside. Turn off the TV. Spend time outdoors walking, bicycling, camping, golfing, swimming, and watching sunsets. Summer is for grilling so mom can get out of the kitchen.

Summer is for weekends. Take day trips with the family. Visit grandparents more often. Drive to a place in Wisconsin you have never seen.

Summer is for family. Spend more time with the kids. Go places and do things. Take a walk after supper holding hands with your spouse. Take the family out for ice cream once a week. Get a croquet set for the back yard.

Summer is for kids. Let them go barefoot and stay up late. Take them to the Brewers Game, and sing songs around a campfire. Memories of summer last well into adulthood, so make sure your family has lots of fond memories of growing up with you.

Summer is for appreciating America. The immense natural beauty of our land, the standard of living we have achieved, our educational system, the freedoms we enjoy, the depth of religious faith, the rule of law, the lack of ethnic conflict, all make America the greatest country on earth. Summer is time to visit a monument, find a historical marker, fly the flag, and go to a parade.

Summer is for church. Come to church on a weekday just to meditate. Find an outdoor Mass to attend. Visit our outdoor Shrine to Mary. Take a walk and say the rosary. Visit Holy Hill, a basilica, or our cathedral in Milwaukee.

Have a great summer!
