Catholic Community of Waukesha

Adult & Family Ministry

Welcome! We are glad to have you checking us out! We are hopeful that this form of communication will allow you to participate more readily in the events offered through our Adult and Family Ministry Office (AFM).
 
“Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way
and opened the scriptures to us?”  Luke 24:32
 
How easy it is in the midst of our busy lives to not hear what Jesus is trying to tell us. One of the goals of AFM is to promote and encourage lifelong learning.  Confirmation is not graduation in that we don’t stop learning about what God is trying to tell us or teach us about our lives and about him.
 
The Bishops say in Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, that "every disciple of the Lord Jesus shares in this mission.  To do their part, adult Catholics must be mature in faith and well-equipped to share the Gospel, promoting it in every family circle, in every church gathering, in every place of work, and in every public forum. They must be women and men of prayer whose faith is alive and vital, grounded in a deep commitment to the person and message of Jesus.” 
                                        
You can’t do that alone and that is why AFM plans various activities throughout the year to help you.  Why not plan to make some space in your life to learn about God and to listen for God’s voice in the busyness of your lives.
