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.

Food Drive and CARnival

September 13, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

It’s time for our annual Firstfruits FUNraiser, but this year has to be different for everyone’s health and safety. With that in mind, and knowing the economic and spiritual hardship so many people are experiencing right now, we are holding a uniquely 2020 kind of event instead. Join us for a:

Food Drive and CARnival
Sunday, September 13th from 11am-2pm

Drive through the parking lot of the Village Court to donate food and household items to support the MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary. In this crisis, it’s more important than ever to help each other in any way we can. The MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary offers a safe place and resources to widen the safety net for homeless and at-risk members of the Milwaukee community, and is asking for the following critical items:

●      Canned beef and chicken, Spam, tuna, spaghettiOs, mac & cheese, Dinty Moore Beef Stew, baked beans, vienna sausages

●      Fans, suitcases with wheels, essential hygiene products, hand sanitizer, cleaning products, toilet paper, and air conditioners

Monetary donations for the MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary are also welcome at the event.

Learn more about their mission and work at their website:


When you drive in to donate, keep a lookout for the Fun Lane that will take you through the Firstfruits CARnival! Any donation to Firstfruits, either online or in person, on September 13 gives you access to the FUN! From the comfort of your vehicle, you can play games, win prizes, and catch some of the fun spirit we all need this year. Please consider signing up for a time slot when you plan to roll through the CARnival, if your schedule allows.  Signing up isn’t required but will help us run things smoothly for you!

Hope to see you all! We will be there with smiles on (even under masks).
