Lenten luncheon - Thursday, March 9, 2017
SEATING IS AT CAPACITY!
Our apologies, but we have reached seating capacity for this year's Lenten Luncheon.
Proceeds from the luncheon go directly to help support Catholic Charities programs and will make a real difference in the lives of the people we serve. Over 87% of our clients live below the national poverty level, making less than $15,000 annually. By becoming a sponsor, you will help us continue to do the work we are called to do -- serving those in most need.
Sponsorships still available!

LENTEN LUNCHEON BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki’s Treasures of the Church award was established to recognize those individuals, organizations and religious orders who exemplify the true treasures of the church in their steadfast commitment and response to the poor in our midst.
Fashioned after an effort that began in 2006 in LaCrosse, “In My Name,” when then Bishop Listecki shepherded that diocese and its local Catholic Charities, Treasures of the Church is now an annual event benefitting the programs and services of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
The Lenten Luncheon is a wonderful time to come together for prayer, fellowship, and a simple lunch of soup and bread while we acknowledge the award recipients and Catholic Charities in bringing help and hope to individuals and families struggling with poverty.
