Recently, we held our annual Employee Service Awards, a special luncheon celebrating staff who are marking milestone anniversaries of employment.  This year, we recognized staff who have served at Milwaukee Catholic Home for five, ten, fifteen, twenty and thirty years!  The longevity of our staff is a testament to the community and culture of service we have built here at MCH, and we’re so grateful for all of our employees and their contribution to our mission.

The event is always a lot of fun, and was made even more fun this year with the addition of a photo booth.  Enjoy a photo slideshow below!

 

 

PARISH DAY PUMPKIN PIE MAKING IN H.C (13)Milwaukee Catholic Home was able to be part of an inspiring circle of giving when we hosted a group of volunteers from the East Side Family of Four Parishes for a Lenten Day of Service.

Thirteen parishioner volunteers spent the day at Milwaukee Catholic Home on Saturday, April 1: five in the Residence and eight in the Health Care Center.  The volunteers joined MCH residents in making pumpkin bread and pumpkin pies, using pulp from pumpkins grown at Clare Gardens which had been cooked and pureed by residents of Milwaukee Catholic Home’s memory care apartments.  The bread and pies were then delivered to the Riverwest Food Pantry to be distributed to the clients served by this ministry, completing the circle of giving!

In addition to the service work they completed together, the volunteers and MCH residents had the opportunity to connect, sharing lunch and stories together while the pumpkin bread baked.

We continue to be inspired by the deep bonds of community we are able to share here on Milwaukee’s east side.  Thank you to the Family of Four Parishes for sharing this time with us, and to the Riverwest Food Pantry for all you do to serve those in most need in our neighborhoods.

Enjoy some great pictures of the day below!
