All of you are the children of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus, since every one of you that has been baptized has been clothed in Christ. There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither slave nor free, there can be neither male nor female -- for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:26-28 


Take a look at this recent survey to see what turns people on or off about their “church” experiences.
A sense of community, one of our strengths, is a primary reason for attendance, but the reason for leaving if it is missing. The graphs are self-explanatory. Worth a few minutes of your time. Read the survey here. (PDF 4.2 mb)

We celebrate the life of Padre Bill Brennan, who was a personal supporter of women priests and dared to honor his conscience by his advocacy and embracing of all the Roman Catholic Womenpriests, particularly, Janice, Alice, Irene and Kathy. We mourn the loss of this fine and courageous Jesuit priest who labored hard and long for women's equality in the Roman Catholic Church, for all who are oppressed and exploited, and for peace in the world. God bless him and all he has served.

WP2012-31 Death of Fr. William J. Brennan, S.J.
August 12, 2014
Dear Brothers:
Fr Brennen
Let us pray in thanksgiving for the life of our brother Fr. William J. Brennan, S.J., who was called to eternal life on August 11, 2014. Bill died at St. Camillus, in Wauwatosa, WI. He was ninety-four years old, a Jesuit for seventy-five years, and a priest for sixty-three years.
Born in Wauwatosa, WI on May 14, 1920, Bill attended grade school in Wauwatosa and Whitefish Bay and graduated from Marquette University High School in 1938. He entered the Society at St. Stanislaus Seminary, Florissant, Missouri on September 1, 1938. After the usual Jesuit course of studies at St. Stanislaus, Saint Louis University, and St. Mary's College, Bill was ordained on June 14, 1951, made tertianship in Decatur, IL, and pronounced his final vows on August 15, 1954.
Bill lived not only a long Jesuit life, but a very full Jesuit life. Regency in Belize was the beginning of years of service in Central America, in both Belize and in Yoro, Honduras, and of a life-long ministry in various Latino parishes in New Mexico, Texas, California, and Wisconsin. From 1966 to 1979 Bill taught at Saint Louis University High School and at Marquette University High School. Involvement in the struggle for justice and peace was also life-long for Bill. From 1981 to 1985 he lived and worked at the Casa Maria House in Milwaukee, and almost to the day he died he continued to demonstrate for justice issues, for the poor and oppressed to whom he gave his heart.
Bill was a great-hearted man who remained amazingly active even after he turned ninety and his body began to fail him. He did not mind controversy and loved to campaign. He lived his life with passion. He was a people's priest.

Church Activities

Thank you for visiting our website.

We invite you to join us to share in the joy, peace, friendship, healing and love that God's Word, communion and Spirit provide.  We see ourselves as a spiritual refugee camp for the many disenfranchised, disillusioned and dishonored faithful Catholics who want to live their faith true to the vision of the Vatican II Council.   

(Soon we will have a Photo Page available so everyone will be to see some of the amazing people involved in this community! Stay tuned.)
