A group of young folks from Milwaukee (Anna, Shannon, Sam, Chad if you know them…) are putting together a sweet event this Milwaukee called OremusMKE. Oremus is Latin for ‘Let us Pray’ and MKE is the airport code for General Mitchell Airport, although this event has nothing to do with airplanes or the military. It also is the first part of the email address for the office of worship at the Archdiocese. Anyway, below is the information for Oremus and the flyer, along with a description from the flyer.

JUNE 28 – Three Holy Women Parish
St. Hedwig Church – 1702 N Humboldt Ave 9:00pm-Midnight
The doors of our church will be open on June 28th from 9pm-midnight. We will invite passersby inside for a moment of peace in the midst of their night.
i“A Church which ‘goes forth’ is a Church whose doors are open…Often it is better simply to slow down, to put aside our eagerness in order to see and listen to others, to stop rushing from one thing to another and to remain with someone who has faltered along the way.” Pope Francis Evangelii Gaudium
If you are interested in helping with this event, or have any questions, contact Chad Griesel firstname.lastname@example.org
