The Christian Women of Divine Mercy Parish invite all women to join them. Meetings are held the 3rd Sunday of the month, following 9:30 a.m. Mass, See the schedule below. All Are Welcome!

Thank you, parishioners, for all your support of our Christian Women December bake sale and Packer quilt raffle.  The winner of the beautiful quilt was Rob Page!

Your generosity enables us to continue our mission of financial support to our parish, school, Christian Formation and charitable contributions to So Milwaukee and  surrounding community endeavors.
                                                                                                                                          We appreciate you!

At our most recent meeting, we heard from Rita Sweet, 89 years young,  and her son, Tom, who make mats for the homeless.  Our Christian Women group has enlisted the parish to collect plastic bags to help with their endeavor.  This ministry started at St. Matthew's Parish in Oak Creek. Rita and her son, Tom Sweet, heard about this ministry and Tom thought it was something his mother could do, so, they both looked into it.  Tom's role is to cut the bags and Rita puts the plarn (plastic yarn) together and then makes the mats. After completion, they take them to St. Matthew's for the finishing touches. The mats are then given to shelters who serve the homeless throughout the City of Milwaukee.


 Divine Mercy Christian Women
“To Gather and Serve” 
Who we are:

The Christian Women group are Catholic women of Divine Mercy parish.  We are wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters.  We are older adults, young adults, retirees, and those in the work force.

What we do: 

The primary mission of Christian Women is continuing spiritual formation, through private and group prayer and mass attendance.

Our secondary mission is spiritual and corporal works of mercy for parish needs and community outreach programs.

Third is the moral and financial support of Divine Mercy parish school and Christian Formation program.

Why join?

In a world that can seem chaotic and unpredictable, like-minded women joining together for spiritual growth and charitable works is a blessing to the soul, the mind and the heart!
