About Petawa

Petawa Cultural Center is located on Milwaukee’s lower east side on N. Astor Street. We are dedicated to the Christian development of all women. Petawa promotes the belief that personal development and self-fulfillment can only find true expression in the context of service to others. Our programs and activities aim to challenge women, whether married or single, students or professionals, to accept their responsibility for the moral fiber of society and to work to help change the world by struggling for personal holiness.

Petawa offers women of all ages a complete plan of integrated formation, to improve their intellectual, moral, spiritual, cultural and professional formation. This formation is offered through service projects, opportunities for teaching religion to children, leadership programs, Roman Catholic spiritual retreats, marriage seminars, Catholic theology classes and other religious activities.

 

The spiritual and doctrinal formation sponsored by Petawa is entrusted to Opus Dei, a personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. Opus Dei helps ordinary people live up to their Christian calling in their day-to-day affairs by giving them the spiritual support and formation they need. It promotes an awareness of the universal call to holiness – the radical idea that every person is called by God to be a saint - especially holiness in and by means of one's ordinary work and daily routine.

Our Mission is to transform culture through personal growth and lifelong learning.

We believe that personal development and self-fulfillment can only find true expression in the context of service to others.

Our Vision is to enrich lives and transform culture.
