t’s been almost a year since Fr. Francis Vu Tran, SCJ, left St. Martin of Tours Parish in Franklin, Wis., for Rome. Most of that year has been spent in language studies in preparation for graduate work in biblical theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University.
Our family moved to Franklin from California a year ago. After visiting several schools in the community, we selected St. Martin's, and we're glad we did. Our boys were warmly welcomed. Their teachers worked with them individually to make sure they were academically aligned with their classmates. The staff and families really make this school special. Posted by a parent on 09/07/11
We SCJs are very much involved in the education of children, perhaps more than we often give ourselves credit for. A simple listing makes that abundantly clear:
St. Joseph Indian School — Chamberlain, South Dakota Sacred Heart School — Southaven, Mississippi Holy Family — Holly Springs, Mississippi Our Lady of Guadalupe — Houston, Texas St. Martin of Tours — Franklin Wisconsin
The Franklin Police Department DARE program is offered to all 5th grade students in Franklin Public Schools as part of their health education program. One parochial school, St. Martin of Tours, also participates.
Congratulations to Katherine Furmack, eighth grade graduate of St. Martin of Tours Parish School, who is the 2010-2011 recipient of the St. Martin of Tours Parish School Legacy of Learning Scholarship.
The entire St. Martin of Tours Parish School community applauds Katherine’s efforts and congratulates her on this achievement.
Hidden away in the outskirts of Franklin, St. Martin of Tours Parish School is one of the best kept secrets of the Milwaukee Archdiocese. St. Martin of Tours Parish School is a small yet dedicated parish school that serves children not only in Franklin, but also the surrounding areas, such as Muskego, Oak Creek, Wind Lake and other communities. The school is K-4 through 8th grades.
Fr. Francis Vu Tran successfully finished his final exam (with high marks: 9.8 out of 10) at the Gregorian Pontifical University in Rome. With this completed he will now receive a licentia in Biblical Theology. Formerly associate pastor of St. Martin of Tours, he will remain in Rome to continue work on his doctoral thesis.
The gymnasium at St. Martin of Tours parish in Franklin, Wis., was filled with cyclists on stationery trainers on Saturday morning. Why? Not just because the weather on the first Saturday of spring was cold and windy. The parish gym was the site of the Third Annual Pedal for the Food Pantry.
Organized by parishioners Lauren and Todd Jensen (their son David is a student at St. Martin of Tours’ school), the fund-raiser was begun as a way of doing something positive to remember a friend who was killed in a cycling accident. This year the event brought in $5,156.39 for the pantry, along with hundreds of non-perishable food donations. This brings the total raised over the past three years to just under $20,000.
The parish food pantry began in 2005 to assist families in southwest suburban Milwaukee. In its first year, there were 19 visits. Since then, visits have increased to over 600 a year, helping, on average, 55 households a month.
In a recent report prepared for Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force by the Congressional Hunger Center it was noted that the majority of people who go to food pantries do not receive Food Share (Wisconsin’s food assistance or “food stamp” program). Visitors are often from households where an adult is employed but who often come up short when it comes to feeding their family. Food pantries like the one at St. Martin of Tours, are an import resource in the community.
The 19th Annual Future City Competition was held at the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Kern Center on Saturday, January 21. Forty-two teams competed for the regional title and an all-expenses paid trip to the National Future City Competition Finals,...
This what Amanda Ferr, a graduating eighth-grader St. Martin of Tours School in Franklin, Wis., wrote in her award-winning reflection on Fr. Leo John Dehon, founder of the Priests of the Sacred Heart. Each year the school holds an essay contest in which they challenge eighth graders to write about Fr. Dehon. Contest winners earn a modest scholarship. Fr. Yvon Sheehy, SCJ, is pastor of St. Martin of Tours.
