Commemorating the Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s 175th Anniversary

Today marks the Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s 175th anniversary. Founded on November 28, 1843, the Archdiocese is two years older than the city of Milwaukee and five years older than the state of Wisconsin.

STM commemorated the anniversary with a prayer:

Good and Gracious God,
Lord of all times and seasons,

With grateful hearts and minds
we recall your constant presence in our lives,
shaping our families over these many years,
years of war and peace,
seasons of growth and vitality,
times of struggle and times of hope.

In this, our 175th anniversary year,
renew the spirit of Holiness in our midst.

Enable us to proclaim the Gospel of Christ
in fresh words and daring new deeds.

Inspire us to develop
a spirit of service and discipleship.

Strengthened by the Eucharist we share
and by your Mercy
in the Sacrament of Reconciliation,
enable us to be the signs and instruments
of your truth, your justice and your peace.

Renew our dreams and our hopes.

Keep us safe from adversity,
bold in our actions,
confident in your loving, life-giving presence,
now and forever.

We offer this prayer through Mary,
Mother of the Church
and our patron, St. John the Evangelist,

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
