NEW THIS WEEK
St. Robert is still planning to host a Blood Drive on Sunday, April 19th from 9 AM – 1 PM in Reilly Hall
At this time, Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin, our community’s provider of blood and blood products to all hospital systems in Southeastern Wisconsin, including Froedtert, Aurora, ProHealth Care, Ascension and Children’s Hospital, is experiencing a significant decline in scheduled appointments, an increase in “no shows” for scheduled appointments, and a large number of canceled blood drives. Coronavirus will have significant negative impact on blood donations and blood inventory in the very near and foreseeable future. We are stepping up by KEEPING our scheduled blood drive on Sunday, April 19th to help and ask you to join the effort.
If you are eligible, we encourage you to sign up for our drive by clicking on the link below or calling 1-877-232-4376. To help manage social distancing, we are strongly recommending all donors schedule an appointment. Walk ins will be seen as group size allows.
Disciple-Maker Survey Continues!
St. Robert Parish is participating in a parish-wide survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute, a non-profit Catholic apostolate that does leadership training and development. Here’s a link to the on-line survey.
We want as many parishioners as possible to complete a 10-15 minute survey. The survey will only be available from February 23 until April 5 and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on what our parish is doing to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.
The survey results will be invaluable to our parish, the staff, and our many volunteers as we seek ways to best support everyone in their discipleship journey. Please returned completed paper copies to the silver drop box outside the Parish Office entrance.
We look forward to sharing the findings with you when the project is complete!
Thank you for helping with this important project!
UPCOMING & ONGOING
Religious Ed/House of Peace Collection
During Lent, the St. Robert and Holy Family Religious Ed Program have teamed up with the House of Peace and will be collecting hygiene items for St Ben’s Meal Program clients. Bags can be found in the back of church. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
The Religious education office wanted to remind us that with the Church open during certain times of the day, we are STILL collecting personal care items for the House of Peace during Lent. There is large collection box located in the back of each church.
The Catholic Stewardship Appeal, the annual fundraising campaign of the ten-county Archdiocese of Milwaukee, supports Catholic life throughout southeastern Wisconsin. The Appeal provides Catholics opportunities to support a wide range of ministries and programs that benefit more than 500,000 people each year. For more information, please check out this video:
