Celebrating the Season with the Sisters
St. Joseph Center, Sacred Heart, and Maria Linden have been busy places the last few weeks as the sisters, associates and staff have made our Advent preparations all around the Milwaukee campus. As our celebration of Christmastide continues, we hope you’ll enjoy our video slideshow, which offers a glimpse into all the activity!
You’ll enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at our sisters, associates, and staff decorating sugar cookies and gingerbread for the holiday festivities on campus, and sisters at Sacred Heart trimming the Christmas tree. Associates got into the holiday spirit, packaging hundreds of delicious cookies that were shared with the women, men and children who participate in the St. Ben’s Community Meal program.
Sisters also took part in celebrating Christmas with those who are served by Unison Milwaukee, previously known as SET Ministry. The video concludes with more of the sights and sounds of the season, including a visit from the Divine Savior Holy Angels High School bell choir.
Please wait while we gather your results.
We invite you to join with us for worship, concerts, workshops, and opportunities to volunteer.
We invite you to share your prayer intentions with us.
All are welcome to join the sisters in our century-old, landmark chapel for Sunday and weekday liturgies, concerts, and other special events.
