The Milwaukee Chapter of the Christ Child Society welcomes new members from the greater metropolitan Milwaukee area.
While comprised of many Catholic women, membership is open to anyone and all denominations.
New members are welcome year round – the chapter has a rolling application process. The first year is called the provisional year, a time of orientation, when new members become acquainted with the chapter’s many volunteer activities. With a variety of service programs available, members are encouraged to participate in activities that meet their interests and availability. Provisional members are welcomed as active members at the Spring Mass and Banquet.
Each provisional works with a sponsor, an active CCS member, who will mentor and assist the provisional in her participation. If a new member does not have a sponsor the chapter will gladly provide one.
Provisional membership dues are $25. Active membership annual dues are $50.
