Christian Women

All women of the parish are invited to engage in friendship, fellowship and spiritual support in service to the parish and community. The mission has been to bless the parish with the members’ talents and energy, reinforce the traditional values of the past, create with God a newness of heart and experience the works of the Holy Spirit.

The Women of St. Sebastian doesn’t meet regularly, but we sponsor various spiritual programs, ministries and fund raising opportunities throughout the year.

  • Holiday Boutique and Luncheon – Held the first Saturday of December, women invite guests to decorate a holiday table and join them for lunch. Crafts and baked goods are aavailablefor sale during the boutique, and the next day at a parish-wide holiday event. Contact JoAnn Stasiewicz, 414-405-5303.
