"Developing the Moral Imagination of Your Children" with Leila Lawler
Leila Lawler, a.k.a. “Auntie Leila” of the popular blog Like Mother Like Daughter (www.likemotherlikedaughter.org) and author of books including “The Little Oratory” and “God Has No Grandchildren” will be speaking and sharing wisdom on marriage and family life. Leila is the mother of seven, grandmother of many, and a wellspring of witty and practical insights. She writes on topics relevant to the family — from theology to practical advice on the vocation of marriage like meal planning, laundry management or parenting techniques. This is an unmissable opportunity to gain support and encouragement for your vocation.
Calling All Catholic Working Women!
Come join our Catholic Working Women’s Book Club! We are currently reading Lisa Hendey’s The Grace of Yes: Eight Virtues for Generous Living. We meet in the ATTIC youth room on the first and third Saturdays of the month following the 8am Mass, to discuss the book, and share our faith journey— triumphs and challenges—we face as Catholic working women. If you are new, don’t let the fact that we’ve already begun hold you back from coming. All working women welcome! For more information, e-mail Missy Dieterich, email@example.com and/or join our Facebook group: Catholic Working Women’s Book Club at https://www.facebook.com/groups/267406267037254/.
As Catholics, we have a responsibility to be formed in our faith, and to help form others. The Visitation Institute integrates faith, reason and culture, and answers the Holy Fathers' call to Catholics to participate in the New Evangelization.
The Visitation Institute is a comprehensive series of courses that helps Catholics rediscover the Faith and equips us to witness to others.
The Visitation Institute is a three-year program, broken down into two semesters each year. To accommodate busy schedules, the semesters are just six weeks long - one course each week for six weeks in a row. The Visitation Institute will also have “bridge events,” additional educational opportunities in between semesters, including our popular VIBE (Visitation Institute Bible Encounter), and our annual Parish Mission or Parish Project.
To find out more about the next semester of Visitation Institute, contact Josh Dieterich at the Parish Office, 262-782-4575, ext.109, firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you or someone you known felt that God might be calling them to become Catholic, or to come home to the Church if you've been away? The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a beautiful gift from the Church for adults that are considering coming into the Faith or completing their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion) if they are already Catholic. Please consider joining us in this journey.
Formal classes begin in September and run through the Feast of Pentecost (usually early June), but we're here year-round to answer any questions and help you begin the process!

Young Adult Ministry
Lolek is a Catholic young adult group for young adults ages 18-35. Lolek meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at 7 pm at St. Mary’s for Eucharistic Adoration (with sacrament of Reconciliation available during some evenings), speaker presentation and fellowship.
Throughout the year there are varied activities such as small group studies, game nights, and parties. We also travel for social and cultural places all over Milwaukee. All Young Adult Catholics are encouraged to come and join us for any event.
Find out more about the amazing young adults (18-35) who are journeying, laughing, serving, and learning together in faith.
