Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki assisted in the distribution of Easter hams and food boxes to 100 House of Peace families on Holy Thursday. The holiday hams were generously donated by Badger Hams and Jim Wozniak. Contents included all the fixings for a traditional Easter meal. Without this donated Easter dinner, most of these families would not be able to enjoy a family style Easter dinner.
