To Teach as Jesus Did:

Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee

 
June 2012

 

Honoring Those Who Served

As the 2011-12 school year draws to a close and the beautiful season of summer begins, I I want to take this opportunity to publically recognize 60 individuals from our Catholic elementary and secondary schools who have faithfully served Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, in a variety of capacities, for a total of over 1300 years. 

These teachers, administrators, and support staff members are now entering retirement, a new season of promise and challenge in their personal and professional life journeys.  While each of their schools has certainly honored them for their service in a fitting way, it’s important that the wider community of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee here recognize these individuals for all they’ve contributed and sacrificed to advance the teaching mission of the Church through their Catholic educational ministry:
