Have you ever thought about going on a Los Toros Mission Trip, but prefer a shorter stay and a smaller group? This next Mission Trip may be just what you were hoping for!
Our next mission trip to Los Toros will be October 3 to 9. This will be a small group with a smaller list of activities. We’ll spend only five days in Los Toros. Travel takes the better part of a day each way, including the drive from the airport in Santo Domingo to the village.
Mike Weber will answer your questions and let you know what you need to prepare for the trip. Mike can be reached at 414-803-3707. Airline flights fill up quickly, so please contact Mike as soon as possible.

Whether someone is just beginning to care for a loved one, or has been caring for someone for a while, caregivers need information and resources, as well as time for themselves (or respite) in order to maintain a life outside of caregiving and support. The Caregiver Connection of Ozaukee County hosts many events to assist caregivers in these areas such as presentations on preparation for all stages of caregiving, picnics, coffee break gatherings, and a series on taking care of yourself. For more information, please see their website at www.ozccc.org/newsevents.

You Never Know… when you will need to help save a life. As an update for some, and news for others, the parish has 2 Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs). They are used to evaluate heart rhythms and deliver a potentially lifesaving shock if necessary. Anyone can use them!
1. Located at the top of the stairs leading to the lower church hall. You’ll see a 3 dimensional sign facing the worship space. Look for it today, so you’ll know where it is during an emergency.
2. Located on the lower level across from the gym doors. During an emergency, if someone says, “get the AED,” please do not hesitate. Take it out of the cabinet on the wall and bring to the site, and call 911.
The parish also stocks 3 first aid kits:
1. Usher’s Room
2. Kitchenette off Gathering Hall
3. Parish Office Workroom
– even if you just need a Band-Aid
