Lenten Luncheons

Lenten Luncheon

Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki with volunteers from 2024 awardees representing Lake Country Living

Archbishop Listecki's Treasures of the Church Awards Bring Hundreds Together at four Lenten Luncheon Events.


Each of the four Lenten Luncheon events honors Treasures of the Church Awardees for their compassionate service and celebrates the mission of Catholic Charities. These events bring people together for a simple lunch during the Lenten season with Archbishop Listecki, Treasures of the Church Awardees and friends of Catholic Charities.

We so enjoyed spending time with more than 700 people who believe in the Catholic Charities mission at 2024's Lenten Luncheons — at St. Francis de Sales Seminary, Holy Family Catholic Community in Fond Du Lac, at Bristol Oaks Golf Club hosted by The Tri-Parish Catholic Community of Burlington and Lyons, and at St. Anthony on the Lake Parish in Pewaukee — and we look forward to seeing even more of you in 2025's Lenten season.

Sponsorships

Lenten Luncheons celebrate the Catholic Charities mission to provide service to those in need, to advocate for justice and to call upon others to do the same. Proceeds from the luncheon entirely support Catholic Charities' unique programming and have a positive impact in the lives of the people we serve. 97% of those we serve are affected by poverty. 

By sponsoring the annual Lenten Luncheon, you are a partner in our mission to serve those most in need in our local communities. We hope you'll join us, and please consider being a sponsor.
