Retreat House at LaSagrada Familia Parish to Move Forward After Grant
February 4, 2020 – The Faith In Our Future Trustees approved a grant of $85,000 from the Global Faith Education Fund to the World Mission Office of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The grant finalizes the funding needed to build a retreat house at the Archdiocesan sister parish of LaSagrada Familia in the Dominican Republic. The retreat house will be available to the local population as well as to retreatants and volunteers from across the Archdiocese. The retreat house will open a new stream of training and employment opportunities for local workers. The building design meets Eco standards, and excess funds generated by operations will be used for social projects of the parish.
The Faith In Our Future Trust, a 501(c)(3) Charitable Trust created in 2007, is thankful for gifts from parishioners throughout the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The Trust has distributed over $58 million to date, with all grants restricted to providing support for Catholic Education and Faith Formation.
