Guest House—APRIL Focus

The focus agency for April is Guest House.  The Guest House is a combination of residence and educational facility for homeless men.  The residents there are men who have fallen by the wayside for various reasons.  Programs there help the residents regain self-respect, independence and to seek out long-term solutions to their problems.  Guest House is a three month program that provides lessons in the school of life;  housing, budgeting, job search, health care, self management and many others.  After graduation there is a follow-up staff that help with any problems.  Guest House has a better success rate than any other similar program in the Milwaukee area.  Please keep Guest House in your prayers.

STOC continues to collect food and other donations that support St. Alphonsus, St. James, Guest House & the Hospitality Center.  If you would like to donate additional items please label your contribution with your preference of ministry and donations will be distributed.  If you are donating food items please do not use the outside drop box, food donations should be left inside the church.  For more information please contact the church office at  414-421-0130.  Thank you….Outreach

Summer Schedule

summer-schedule

             Our Summer Service schedule begins on Sunday, May 29th with one service at 9AM.  As that is the 5th Sunday in the month, it will be a Morning Prayer service.

After that, we’re doing something a little different this year.  Because we get so many visitors and newcomers who try us out in the summer, we want to be as welcoming as possible. To those not raised with our liturgy, it’s a challenging enough task to follow along, without also trying to decipher the language of Rite I. In an effort to be more comfortable to anyone who may be looking for a new church home, we are making Rite II our primary worship service this summer.  Since we also value our members who are most comfortable worshiping using Rite I, however, we’ll be celebrating Rite I on the 3rd Sunday of each month- June 19th, July 17th, and August 21st.

We will keep the Summer schedule through Labor Day weekend, and will resume with two services on September 11th.
