RCIA – Becoming Catholic
May 31 @ 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.

If you or someone you know might be interested, contact our Pastoral Associate, Chad Griesel, at 414-271-6577 or cgriesel@ffpmke.org.

Bereavement Support Group @ Old St. Mary Parish Office
Jun 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

This five-session program will begin on Monday, May 2. The group will meet for five Mondays from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm, May 2 – June 6 (there will be no meeting on May 30). The program will touch on many different topics such as Different Stages of Grief, Understanding Anger, Depression and Unfinished Business. You will have the opportunity to share your memories and feelings with others who are walking the same journey.

In a Bereavement Support Group, grievers can hear testimony from those who have “been there.” They will discover that others have suffered similar pains, fear, sadness and anger. It is critical for a griever to know that it is okay to feel lonely, depressed or isolated, and to know with certainty that someday they will feel better.

A Bereavement Support Group can offer hope. Let us walk this journey with you—Register TODAY! Please contact Terri Balash at 414-469-6173 or tbalash@ffpmke.org if you have any questions or want to register.
