Parish News

Thank you to all who supported and attended our Fall Festival & Divine Raffle last Saturday!  Everyone who bought or sold raffle tickets, volunteered at the event, donated items for the raffle baskets, donated bakery, prayed for our success, and all who attended (despite the rain in the late afternoon) - THANK YOU!  It was a wonderful time and we appreciate your beneficence!  We’ll release numbers when we have the final results, but it certainly seemed to be a success!  May God bless you for all you do for our parish! 

The St. Vincent De Paul Food Drive is THIS Weekend!  September 23/24th - in honor of the upcoming Feast day of St. Vincent de Paul – our Divine Mercy’s St. Vincent de Paul Conference is collecting food for our weekly Tuesday Food Pantry.   Our pantry has experienced an increased number of families who need assistance and, unfortunately, our food supply is running low.  Our pantry is always in need of non-perishable items like noodles, pasta sauce, macaroni and cheese, tuna, jelly and soup.  Any donation of food or personal hygiene items can be brought to the Narthex at church and deposited into our green bins. Thank you for having the hearts to “bring God’s love to the poor” through your generosity and donations!

The Christian Women invite all ladies to their meeting this Sunday, September 24th.  We attend 9:30 a.m. Mass as a group (pews are reserved in front) with the meeting to follow at 10:30 a.m. in the gathering space outside the kitchen.  A light meal is served.  If you are unable to make Mass with us, please feel free to attend the meal and meeting!  Call JoEllen with any questions at at 414-617-2397.

Did you know???
  • The primary mission of Christian Women is continuing spiritual formation.  We achieve this by private/group prayer and Mass attendance.
  • Our secondary mission is spiritual and corporal works of mercy for parish needs and community outreach.  We achieve these missions by financially supporting multiple skilled nursing facilities in South Milwaukee, our parish women’s retreats, Brew City Ministries, homeless and women/family shelters in SE Wisconsin, pro-life organizations and cleaning our priest/deacon vestments.  In addition to financial support, you’ve seen and gratefully supported the various collections we sponsor for South Milwaukee Human Concerns and other charitable organizations!
  • Thirdly, we financially support our parish school and Christian formation, including May Crowning and gift cards for our school staff.

Our world can seem chaotic and unpredictable.  If your heart is yearning for the fellowship of like-minded women intent on making a positive impact in our parish, community and neighboring communities, please consider joining Christian Women.  All women 18 years or older in our parish are welcome!

You Saved the Day

Thank you to all the donors, bakers and volunteers who helped make the St. Matthew Blood Drive a huge success.  Your generosity resulted in a collection of 100 units of blood.

Catholic Charities’ In Home Support program is looking for a few extra sets of hands to support older adults and adults with disabilities in the community (Oak Creek, South Milwaukee and Cudahy).  By volunteering in our In-Home support program, parishioners can give older adults and adults with disabilities some of their independence back, build wonderful relationships and help them to live safely and independently in their homes. By making local connections, they will build a strong relationship and provide that much needed support.  Contact Marie Honel, volunteer coordinator, at for more information.
