The Chapter welcomes members of all denominations whose interests focus primarily on following the child by providing:

  • Clothing for newborns
  • Parental support through our Second Saturday Program
  • Tutors and library aides at Blessed Savior South School
  • Children’s vision screening at parochial schools
  • Grants to schools for unmet needs that help their students

All of which nurture the youth in the Greater Metropolitan Milwaukee Area.  These commitments, which enhance human dignity, reflect the goals and principles of Mary Virginia Merrick, founder of the Christ Child Society.  The Chapter also provides members an opportunity for individual growth through interaction with the community and each other.

“The Christ Child Society is special to me because of two words: volunteer and child. I am proud that we continue to be an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that dedicates its resources to help better the lives of children in need.

Julie S., member since 1992

“Becoming a Christ Child Society member has allowed me to help the children in our community, and to do it from my home at my convenience. I am so happy with my involvement that I am looking to share my story with other women.”

Mary B., member since 2009

“My involvement in Christ Child Society allows me to help children know that love and caring exist while forming a bond with women who share those beliefs. We know that the Christ Child is always there to lift us up in this mission.”

Lois J., member since 1986
