November 9, 2016 – The Trustees of Faith In Our Future approved a challenge grant of up to $5,000 from the Community Faith Building Endowment Fund to St. Jerome Parish. The grant will match donations raised by the parish to implement a pilot program developed in the parish. The program is titled “Sunday Mass is Our Family Meal” and centers on families committing to “mass and a meal” together each Sunday. This is a new initiative which will occur during Lent of 2017, and it could be spread to other parishes that also see the program as a means of fulfilling an element of the Archdiocesan Synod.
The Faith In Our Future Trust is a 501(c)(3) charitable trust, funded by gifts from parishioners throughout the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. All grants from the Trust are restricted to providing support for Catholic Education and Faith Formation.
