Catholics for Peace and Justice

Leadership Council

Mary Krolikowski - I’m committed to Catholics for Peace and Justice as an organization of people that help me to maintain a sensitive conscience in a cultural milieu that tends to numb us to injustice. I appreciate CPJ’s work to promote peace, respect, and connection without exclusions, in whatever way we find available in our daily lives. I am a pediatric nurse by profession, which is a very good niche for me. My hobbies are mostly artistic and outdoors-y. I love animals, flowers, gardening, camping, sailing, children, books, food, painting and sewing. I’m looking forward to more of the above when I retire from the work-a-day routine. Mary serves as President.

Marge Sebern, PhD, RN - I am an Associated Professor Emerita at Marquette University College of Nursing. Currently retired, I taught classes on health equity and health promotion across the lifespan and focused my research on the contributions of social relationships to health outcomes.

I currently serve on the Catholics for Peace and Justice leadership council, the Lumen Christi Human Concerns Commission, and Lumen Christi subcommittees for Racial Justice and Care for Creation. I am a volunteer for the Catholic Charities refugee resettlement program.

What resonates most in me is, responding to the poor and vulnerable, working in community, and advocating for more just policies and laws.

Robert Schuelke - Bob is currently the Director of Social Justice Ministries at Three Holy Women Parish in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He recently served on the Catholic Charities USA Parish Social Ministry Leadership Team and has presented here and abroad on developing social justice ministries in parishes. Bob has been on the Catholics for Peace and Justice Leadership Team since 2007. Married to Barbara Schuelke for 42 years, Bob and his wife have 3 children and four grandchildren.
