The Men’s Group meets every Wednesday morning for conversation, prayer and study. The group has been in existence for about 3 years and has anywhere from 12-15 men who attend. Each meeting starts off with coffee and conversation. The group comes together in brief prayer prior to discussing the day’s topic. The discussion topics vary. At times, the discussion can involve men’s spirituality. At other times the Sacraments, the Bible or current issues within the church. The discussions often are based upon a book or an article being read by the group. The members of the group vary in age, profession and education.
New members are always welcome. The group meets at 6:30 am each Wednesday morning in the first floor dining room of the Parish Center. Questions about the group can be directed to John Higgins at 262-697-3623
Safe Environment Education (S.E.E.) - formerly Virtus
This is a three part process for every volunteer and every parish employee who work with children. The first requirement is to attend an awareness session concerning child sexual abuse entitled: “Protecting God’s Children.” This typically runs 2-3 hours in length and is held in the evening and daytime at our parish and at multiple locations throughout the diocese. Educational sessions are listed online at www.archmil.org.
Each participant is also required to acknowledge receipt and sign the “Code of Ethical Standards for Church Leaders.” Additionally, every participant must authorize the parish to complete both a national and statewide criminal background check. Background checks will be repeated as needed or every five years whichever comes first. Continued employment and volunteerism is contingent on the compliance with each of these requirements.
