Firstfruits began with an idea: How could women’s needs to gather with other women, experience God’s love and go forth more centered on their own giftedness and purpose be met? Then the Holy Spirit stepped in and something powerful happened!
In the beginning … Firstfruits began as a vision for a women’s ministry whose purpose was to gather women to experience God’s love. And as a result, be transformed!

As word spread about this unique opportunity, other parishes became interested in hosting a Firstfruits gathering. It became apparent to the founders of Firstfruits that this “gathering” needed to be moveable. We became known as a moveable feast of spiritual opportunities for women.

Truth Be Told

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.

  • Session 2 (Winter): January 11 to February 22
  • Session 3 (Spring): March 8 to April 26 (No class April 5)

Spiritual Scholars (Afternoon)
Oct 22 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Join us for a special season of Firstfruits book club, Spiritual Scholars. This year our book choices will focus on the issue of racism. Our racism series this past summer inspired rich dialogue and an awareness of the need for more education around this important topic.

It became clear that any hope for change begins first with an inner transformation. Each one of us needs to listen, learn, and love from a place of compassion. Our hope is to help each other begin that transformation as we study this important topic.

The book we will be discussing is White Fragility by Robin DeAngelo. Please purchase the book before the first meeting.

This 7-week series is offered on Thursdays from October 8 to November 19 in the afternoon or evening.  You can choose between the following options:

  • Thursday Afternoon Zoom from 12:30-1:30am
