St. Vincent de Paul Collection
Sep 1 – Sep 30 all-day

Our St. Vincent de Paul Six Saints conference has been very busy during the pandemic. Although they have needed to adjust their procedures in meeting the needs of the poor in our community, those needs have not diminished in any way. If you would like to support the ministry of St. Vincent de Paul by offering donations of kitchen items (pots, pans, plates, silverware, cups etc.), household items (new or like-new bedding, new towels, etc.) or furniture, please contact Laura Hancock at or leave a message on her office voicemail 414-271-6577 and she will connect you with the chapter president to arrange for pick-up of your donation. Also, financial donations via cash or checks made out to St. Vincent de Paul are always appreciated. Please mail checks to Three Holy Women, Attn: Laura Hancock, 1716 N Humboldt Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53202. Thank you for your ongoing generosity!

Virtual Food Drive
Sep 1 – Sep 30 all-day

We know that our parishioners are incredibly dedicated to supporting the ongoing ministry of the Riverwest Food Pantry. Although the pandemic has required the cancellation of all food drives for RWFP (including the physical donation of the “Item of the Week” at our parish Masses), we would like to support the Community of Generosity with a Virtual Food Drive! It’s easy! Instead of purchasing your Item of the Week and bringing it with you to Mass, all you have to do is visit https://yougivegoods.com/familyoffourparishes-september, click on your parish, and then SHOP! It really is that easy… and will have a lasting impact on supporting the needs of our neighbors. Our September goal is 1500 pounds of food. Let’s see what we can do! If you have any questions, please contact Laura Hancock at . Thank you for your generous giving!!

JustMatters: Faith and Racial Equity Small Groups

These times are deeply troubling for all of us. Many of us are feeling confused, lost, despondent, filled with rage and a profound sense of sadness. However, these times can also be filled with hope: hope for the healing of generational wounds, hope for personal and societal transformation fueled by love, and hope for our ability to participate in the building of God’s reign on Earth. If you’d like to join together with other parishioners to learn more about Faith and Racial Equity, please consider joining a 10-week small group. These small groups will provide a safe environment, supported by prayer and the educational materials of JustFaith Ministries, where you will be able to challenge yourself to learn more about the experience of racism in our country while growing in love, community, and discerning your particular mode of social action. If you’d like to learn more, or if you are ready to sign up, please email Laura Hancock, Director of Social Justice and Outreach, at .

RCIA – Becoming Catholic @ Old St. Mary Parish Center
Sep 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Dorothy Day writes, “The final word is love…To love we must know each other … and we know each other in the breaking of bread, and we are not alone any more…We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.”

Despite the many challenges we face today, we believe in the power of love found in Communion and in community. Our parishes invite anyone who is interested in exploring the Catholic faith to consider the RCIA process. RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a place where adults of any or no faith tradition can explore questions of faith and prepare to join the Catholic Church. Our four-parish RCIA process is underway. Given the ongoing pandemic, we will be as flexible as possible regarding in-person, virtual and alternate meeting opportunities.

If you or someone you know might be interested, contact our Pastoral Associate, Chad Griesel, at 414-271-6180 or .

UPLIFT Families Wednesday Program
Oct 7 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

“Uniting People Living in Faith and Truth” (UPLIFT) Family Formation Program is our religious education program serving the parents and children of Old St. Mary, Our Lady of Divine Providence, SS. Peter and Paul, Three Holy Women, and the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Our program is designed to support and equip PARENTS to be the primary educators of the faith for their children and assist and UPLIFT families to live in the fullness of our Catholic faith as disciples and followers of Jesus Christ.

UPLIFT Families meetings will be entirely online using Zoom until we are able to safely meet as a group and families are comfortable meeting in person. We offer the program on two different days of the week: the Wednesday evening program (6:30-7:30 pm) and the Sunday morning program (10:30-11:30 am). You will choose either the Wednesday or Sunday Program. The content of both programs will be identical.

Each year we focus our teaching on one of the Four Pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The idea is that if a child begins our program in K5 or 1st grade and stays until 8th grade, the child will have covered the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church two times and thus deepening his/her understanding of the faith. The Four Pillars are: the Sacraments, the Creed (what we believe), Christian Prayer, and Life of Jesus (morality). Last year all families learned about the seven Sacraments and this year the focus will be on learning and practicing – prayer. We hope to deepen your families’ understanding and experience of the different prayer practices in our faith. We will continue to use the Family of Faith book series published by Sophia Institute Press and families will receive a Child’s Activity Book and Parent Book to use during the meetings.

First Reconciliation and First Communion:
Children in 2nd grade receive these additional sacramental preparation opportunities to deepen their understanding and love for the sacraments: First Reconciliation Workshop (Jan/Feb), First Communion Retreat (March), and First Communion Rehearsal & Banner Making (April). Children are expected to attend all sacramental preparation activities with at least one parent/guardian.

REGISTRATION:
To register for UPLIFT Families go to tinyurl.com/2020upliftfamilies and complete one registration form for your family. The registration deadline is September 11.
