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.

Finding the Extraordinary

The Kiwi

Early on, Firstfruits found itself searching for a logo . . . and what better than a fruit? With a little pondering, the very heart of a kiwi exposed when sliced across the middle would be reshaped into a heart. But not just any heart. The outwardly radiating black seeds bring to mind the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus that those of us who are Catholic grew up with at home, along with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our logo reminds us of God’s infinite, dynamic love for us always!
