Didn’t make it to recent Stritch events? We captured these quotes to help you feel like you were there.

"When we make ourselves available to God, God will use us. Moses stuttered, Jeremiah was too young, Isaiah thought he was too much of a sinner, Elizabeth was too old, Mary was a virgin, Paul persecuted the church. None of these people thought they were worthy. Yet these are the people God chose. "

– Bishop Donald Hying, formerly of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and now serving the Diocese of Gary in Indiana, in his talk "Called, Formed, Sent: the Faith-Work of Lay People" at the Forums on Faith and Work series hosted by Cardinal Stritch University’s Saint Clare Center for Catholic Life in September 2015.

 

 






"When my Stritch internship in the early 1990s led to a full-time job at the Pabst Mansion, I was advised by many people to put a few years in there and move on. But I began to realize that the traditional turnover of the staff meant that the organization had difficulty in getting to the deeper history of the house and family. I had found my dream job, so why would I leave it? My advice is, if you’re in your first or second job and find you’re loving it and remain challenged, there is no need to move on, despite conventional wisdom."

– Alumnus John Eastberg, ’93, executive director and historian at the Pabst Mansion in Milwaukee, during his talk as part of Stritch’s Sr. Justine Peter, ’50, Lecture Series in October 2015 when he discussed "Reimagining the Pabst Mansion" and the changing interpretation of Milwaukee’s past.
