THANKS:
Altar Flowers: F lowers this Sunday are from J ohn and J ulie Wolf in memory of Agatha Wolf.
“Thank You” from the Troemel Family: In loving memory of Suzanne Troemel, our family would like to tell you how much we
appreciated all St. Mary’s help.
Lenten Outreach: At St. Mary’s we give away 100% of our Easter collections. This year $426.00 will be given to the Episcopal Church
in the Holy Land from our Good Friday offerings and $2,727 collected from our Easter offerings will be divided equally between the
Rector’s Discretionary Fund which allows Father Scott to help people in need and organizations who serve them, the Hebron House in
Waukesha, an organization that seeks to serve and shelter people who are homeless, and to The Gathering meal ministry, serving hungry
people at a number of locations in the Milwaukee area.
“Thank You” from Lad Lake: A time for thanks, a time to say, God bless you now and every day. Thank you and bless you for being so
special. The Lenten giving tree household items were outstanding. Thank you, thank you so very much. All items were needed and greatly
appreciated. Lad Lake & Laura
“Thank You” from the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative: Dear Fr. Scott: On behalf of the homeless and at-risk veterans we
serve, thank you for your support of our work and for forwarding two recent checks from members of your congregation. Please be assured
we will put the donations to effective use. The MHVI Bunker at 7222 W. Fond du Lac Ave. in Milwaukee continues to be a whirlwind of
activity with donation pickups, drop-offs and deliveries to veterans. In the first two months of the year, we made 38 deliveries of furniture,
household goods, toiletries, linens, groceries and more to formerly homeless veterans, including eight women veterans and five families. In
2014 we moved 311 veterans and their families into new living spaces and provided them with donated furniture, linens, food, toiletries and
household goods valued at more than $250,000. We gave out 2,000 bus tickets to veterans for medical appointments and job interviews,
distributed more than 1,750 outreach packets to the homeless veterans, and provided food for more than 600 veterans and family members.
Since 2008, we have also helped more than 100 veterans to obtain VA benefits to which they were entitled. We are launching two exciting
new programs, a Women’s Veterans Initiative (WOVIN) to reach out to that underserved and growing population of female veterans, and
an assessment program, partnering with the UW-Milwaukee College of Nursing, to do follow-up home visits with veterans we have helped,
to see if they have unmet needs and hope we can help them or refer them to others who can. We served more than 700 veterans and their
families last year, providing services that no other organization offers. We are able to do it because of your generosity and that of hundreds
of others who donated their volunteer time, furniture, clothing, toiletries and household goods, or a financial contribution to support our
work. Thank you for your support and generosity, which makes it all possible. With warm regards, Bill Christofferson, President, Board of
Directors, Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative.
In the calendar of the Episcopal Church, today is the Second Sunday of Easter. In the St.
Mary’s calendar, it’s also a day we’re calling “Celebration Sunday”. This is the day when
we will burn two mortgages – one from the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee and one from
Associated Bank. Having never attended a mortgage burning before, I’m pretty excited.
What excites me about this day and what we’re celebrating? Several things come to mind, but here
are some of the main ones:
First, I am not sur e if you wer e her e on Palm Sunday two weeks ago, but on that day we tr aditionally
begin our service in the chapel and then walk in procession into church. At 8:00 am, the chapel was full and there
were people waiting in church. By the time the 10:00 am service started, the weather was getting pretty rough. Several people decided to skip the procession and wait in church. The chapel was so full that we had people standing. I
found marveling at the growth and transformation we’ve witnessed over these past several years. I thank God for
continuing to bless us as we seek to create a faith community where everyone is welcome, period. What a blessing!
Second, since the beginning of the fir st of two Growing in Faith campaigns in 2008, an amazing
$1,019, 640 was pledged by 51 families in our parish. To date, $995,678 in pledges has been received. This is
amazing – it means that around 99% of the pledges made to the building fund have been paid! About 1% of building
fund pledges has been canceled, and around another 1% remains outstanding. One of our guests this morning at worship is Mr. Fred Stoltz, the consultant who worked with us on our campaigns. I am sure that Fred would tell us that
this rate of return is quite amazing. I truly thought we’d be embarking on a third capital campaign and paying off
these loans for another ten years or so. I know that I’m not alone in thinking that’s how things would unfold. Wow!
Third, I am so gr ateful to celebr ate today the many ministr ies in our par ish. Did you know that over
54% of our parishioners are involved some form of ministry here at St. Mary’s? This involvement spans the
spectrum when it comes to people of different ages, length of membership, religious background or lack thereof, and
type of ministry.
Now that we are enjoying “Celebration Sunday” and giving thanks to Almighty God, it seems like a good
time to ask Him, “What’s next?!” -Fr. Scott
