How important are your friendships?
Your friends laugh with you, cry with you, watch football with you, and in times of struggle, they even remind you who you are. The popular Christian author C.S. Lewis says, “Friendship is the greatest of worldly goods. To me, it is the chief happiness of life.” This great gift of friendship sparked the beginning of the mission of Arise Milwaukee. A simple idea born out of a ragtag group of young adult Catholics to “have a night of praise & worship music with Eucharistic adoration,” has quickly become a movement of the New Evangelization
that is thriving in its attempts to help people meet the person of Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church.
The mission of Arise Milwaukee
Arise Milwaukee has reached over 30 parishes, where thousands of people have met Jesus. We hear story after story of people falling in love with Jesus and the Church for the first time, and how His love has changed their lives.
Our Wisconsin Catholic Youth Rally has served thousands of teens since 2006. Our group of teen leaders meets each month as members of "The Spark" Leadership formation team. These teens learn new ways to pray, how to share and live their faith with their peers to become missionary disciples on mission for Jesus and the Church for the rest of their lives.
Cor Jesu, our weekly outreach, continues to grow and bring people to Jesus,
fostering vocations to the priesthood, religious life, and sacramental marriage.
God does amazing things through friends!
Arise Milwaukee needs your friendship
It isn’t a secret; the Catholic Church faces many challenges today. We are experiencing lower Sunday Mass attendance, lower reception of the sacraments, and a lack of genuine fervor for the faith. Arise Milwaukee seeks to meet these urgent challenges by continuing to offer life-changing opportunities that cultivate authentic and personal encounters with Jesus Christ. To continue to do this, we need the investment and generosity of friends.
