Do you know someone over 30 who might have a vocation?
Some men mistakenly assume priesthood is not an option because they had been married, had children, lacked a college degree, or thought they were “too old” or “not good enough.” Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology has been forming men over age 30 since 1970, and is hosting Zoom “Meet & Greets” for anyone that might want to learn more. Join one of our informal conversations: https://www.shsst.edu/vocation/. Contact Deacon Steve Kramer for more information: email@example.com or (414)858-4767.

St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee
St. Vincent de Paul Society of Milwaukee remains a pillar of strength for Milwaukee neighbors in need during this uncertain time. Now, more than ever, the Society relies on support from community partners and friends to ensure services remain strong. There are numerous opportunities for you to help SVDP Milwaukee help others during this time, such as:
Contact the St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) members in your parish or a neighboring parish that has a St. Vincent de Paul group (referred to as a “conference”). They truly are the hands and feet of Christ as they make calls to neighbors in need and offer assistance to alleviate some of the hardship to obtain basic necessities. Ask how you can help them, offer your prayers and find out more about how your SVDP conferences are making a difference in your local community.
Thank you for your support and prayers. For more information contact Rebecca Surges, Director of Development & Communications, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Phone: (262) 751-8103.
