We are proud to announce that SPRED Partners, Inc. / SPRED has been approved by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to be listed in the Official Catholic Directory in 2023! The Official Catholic Directory is the official source for verifying the tax-exempt status of Catholic institutions under the IRS/United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Group Ruling.
The listing is under SPRED Partners with the following brief description: SPRED Partners works to find funds to support SPRED, a program which meets the spiritual needs of children & adults with developmental disabilities". We also included the SPRED Milwaukee web address, www.spredmilwaukee.org, so more people can learn about the SPRED program and come to understand how needed it is in our parishes along with the importance of donating to SPRED Partners to grow and keep this program.
Our beloved president, The Very Rev. Timothy Kitzke has been named rector of Milwaukee's Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Fr. Tim will continue to be the pastor of the "family of four" parishes on the east side and in Riverwest. They are Old St. Mary; Saints Peter and Paul; Our Lady of Divine Providence ; and Three Holy Women (which comprises three churches on its own). Congratulations Fr. Tim!
