Mary Ellen Markowski 'Catholic Community Foundation' November 3rd 2017

Our monthly First Friday Mass and Meeting is November 3rd.

We are very pleased to have Ms. Mary Ellen Markowski as our speaker. Ms. Markowski is president of the Catholic Community Foundation in Milwaukee. Mary Ellen is a graduate of Marquette University, and before joining the Catholic Community Foundation she served as an Associate Vice President at Marquette, responsible for major gift, foundation and corporate fundraising. Her talk with us will address how a separate donor fund through the Foundation can allow individuals to provide lasting support to Catholic causes that ultimately advance the mission of the Church. She also will describe how the Foundation helps parishes, schools and other Catholic organizations manage their long-term investments and endowments wisely.

Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 A.M. in the Chapel of St. Edmund Campion, located on the 4th floor of Eckstein Hall (Marquette University Law School). Mass will be followed by our meeting and discussion from 8:00-9:00 A.M., which includes a continental breakfast (suggested donation $4.00).

Limited complimentary visitor parking is available in the Eckstein Hall underground parking structure, 11th Street level, between Wisconsin Avenue and Clybourn. There is a new parking system that will require two tickets to exit. Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space. Once parked, follow signs to the elevator. Take the elevator to the main floor, which opens to the foyer, and go to the Welcome Desk to get your "chaser" ticket so that you will not have to pay for parking when exiting. In other words, for free parking, when you exit you will need both the ticket you pulled when you entered and the "chaser" ticket the Welcome Desk gave you. You will be given instructions.
