Archbishop Weakland's 1999 Catholic Schools Dinner Presentation

Marquette University Alumni Memorial Union, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, February 15, 1999
And I have come to a remarkable conclusion, I am sure; you can quote me on this any time you want: it takes a parish to educate a child. The reason why the Church has been successful is because the school should never be isolated. It takes a parish - or today I would say a network of parishes - to educate a child. The first level has to be parental responsibility and maintaining always before our eyes that the parents are the primary teachers and our role is to assist them.

Our Archbishop has questions for all sides.



Weakland wants to see church minister more to central city

Our Archbishop looks ahead three years to his retirement.

"I feel very concerned right now that somehow the Catholic Church in Milwaukee is not doing enough in terms of social problems," said Weakland, who cited issues such as family stability, drug use and a lack of role models.

"If I could found a religious order today, I'd found a religious order to live in the central city, just to be there. I'm very concerned we don't do enough to help the African-American male. We lose contact at age 13."

Isn't he the one who closed almost all the central city parishes?
