Global Day for Migrants and Refugees
Sunday, Sept. 27th has been declared the Global Day for Migrants and Refugees by Pope Francis.  There has probably never been a more important time for U.S. Catholics to pray for these victims of violence, poverty, or catastrophe and for compassionate national immigration policies that respect human rights. 

Please join us for a prayer vigil at St. William, 440 N Moreland Blvd, Waukesha, from 1:00 -1:30 PM.  The service will also be live-streamed at the Catholic Community of Waukesha’s YouTube page: Join us virtually if you can't come in person! The vigil will take place inside the church, but the crowd will be small and social distancing can be maintained; be sure to wear a mask, of course.

Thanks to CCMR member Twyla Arnaud for taking the initiative on this event, and to Bob Gallagher of the Waukesha Catholic parishes for assistance with planning and local arrangements. Twyla is looking for individuals willing to help with the planning or at the vigil itself. Contact her at

Sponsored by the Collaborating Parishes of Waukesha and the Catholic Coalition for Migrants and Refugees.

Truth Be Told: Discipleship in the Gospel of Luke
Begins Oct 12

Firstfruits is excited to announce our new scripture study entitled Truth Be Told. In this series of three 6-week sessions, we will study the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts. We will focus on the person of Jesus and our invitation to be his disciples, and what it means to follow Christ in our fractured world. This is a perfect Catholic bible study for beginners as well as more seasoned bible readers.

This series is offered on Mondays from 10:30-12:00pm in three 6-week series (Fall, Winter, and Spring).  Each six week series stands on its own so you don’t have to register for all three at once.
