A Message from our Director of Stewardship

    In today’s Gospel we hear that Jesus is the Good Shephard. We hear about the intimate relationship between a good shepherd and his sheep; a good shepherd knows his flock and his sheep know his voice so as to not let a stranger lead them astray. In fact, we hear, “The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep," (John 10:11). God truly loves us. What a great Gospel reading to help us officially kick off our Love One Another Campaign this weekend. We, my friends, have a chance to be shepherds of our parish; to make a financial pledge to help tend to our parish campus here at St. Leonard by making a commitment to support our needed capital improvements. God has, and will continue, to take care of us. Now it is our turn to take care of our parish and those in our community. 

    This weekend we will hear from our Parish Director, Karen Tenfel, during all masses regarding our parish plans in the Love One Another Campaign. Our parish campaign goal is $1,886,144 to be raised in pledges payable over five years. St. Leonard will receive 60% of pledges, and even more if we exceed our goal. We will use our share of the funds to address the following needs:

  • Gym Roof and HVAC Units– An independent firm evaluated the leaky roof and found that it is at the end of its life and will need to be replaced within the next five years. Additionally, it is recommended that the roof-top HVAC be replaced due to the ongoing issues for the past eight years.
  • School Restrooms– The bathroom fixtures (except for the stall dividers and sinks) are over 60 years old and need complete replacement in order to be 100% ADA compliant.
  • Parking Lot Restoration– The main parking lot was resurfaced in 2008, but poor subsoil conditions on our property have resulted in significant cracking and deterioration over time. Therefore, we will need to undertake extensive grade rehabilitation measures to mitigate the poor subsoil conditions and then resurface the entire parking area.
  • Refurbishing the Pews– The pews in our worship space are original from construction in 1980. The veneer is peeling, the finish is worn, and the kneelers need to be replaced or recovered in various locations.

    The remaining funds (40%), will go toward new and expanded efforts focusing on the poor and those in need, Saint Francis de Sales Seminary, Catholic schools, and other important Catholic ministries as directed by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

    In the next few days, you will be receiving a letter in the mail that includes information about the campaign and a pledge form. We are asking for you to prayerfully consider your best pledge for our five year campaign and to complete and return your pledge form by Friday, June 23, 2023. After you receive your information in the mail, if you have any questions, you are encouraged to give me a call in the parish office. I would be happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you might have. In the meantime, we appreciate your prayers for the success of our campaign so that we, like the good shepherd, can appropriately tend to our parish, for years to come. 

Michelle Kreuser, Director of Stewardship
