Neighbor Spotlight – Father Mike Bertram

by Bridget Bishop
The parish of St. Francis is unique for so many reasons. Besides being historically associated with the Capuchins since 1869, which has adds an extra dimension to the organization of the church, its buildings and its operations, the parish is unique for a litany of reasons. Thriving in a time when low membership has caused many diocesan parishes to consolidate or even shutter, a fourth Saturday evening mass was recently added to the lineup. In addition, its diverse population is a stunning representation of the myriad ethnic communities in Milwaukee, and a testament to the power of faith in bringing people together.
