Fr. Peter Patrick has been on retreat this week week, but he will join the congregation next Sunday, as June 21 has been set as the target date to re-open the St. Sebastian church for Mass.  Read more here or call the parish office at 414-453-1061 for more information.

Today as we celebrate the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, we are touched by the incarnate presence. Jesus told the Apostles, “the one who feeds on me will have life because of me.” This is our challenge and our opportunity to join in the mystery that is Christ.

By accepting Jesus fully, we have new life. Jesus is somehow physically present in the sacramental bread. There is no way for us to understand, but we know the truth through our presence in it. Please check out the resources staff has prepared so you may enjoy the food for the journey.

Celebrate Sunday, June 14

Faith Formation Survey – We need your feedback! Please take this five-question survey to help the Faith Formation team understand how to best serve our children, youth and adult parish communities so that we may grow together in faith during this troubling time.

Navigating 2020 is a FREE online event to empower parish leaders (staff and volunteers) to continue to reach those they serve during these uncertain times. The Archdiocese is offering “virtual conversations” from June 14-19 at www.archmil.org/Navigating2020.

Parish Volunteers & Safeguarding – All parish volunteers and employees who work with or have contact with children and youth must be compliant with the Archdiocesan Safeguarding Policies.  Part of the compliance is completion of a criminal background check and completion of a Safeguarding Workshop. Find out more and register.

If someone you know needs our prayers, you can send prayers to wepray@saintsebs.org. If you would like to receive the newsletter in the mail or are in need of some assistance, please be sure to let us know at saintsebs@saintsebs.org or 414-453-1061.
