Our Blessed Brunches have brought Catholic women together all over the globe. New Bible study groups have been formed, new friendships made, and new tribes assembled—all thanks to women's fearless "yeses." If you are interested in hosting or attending a Blessed Brunch, but are curious to see what one actually looks like in real life, we're bringing you stories from women who have been there, done that.
We will regularly share these Blessed Brunch Stories in the hopes that you will be encouraged to bring one to your own city. Whether you gather with two women or two hundred women, time spent together in fellowship is never wasted. Let's invite one another into our homes and into our hearts!
Blessed Brunch Stories: Luxemburg, WI
Kimberly, did you host or attend this Blessed Brunch?
Where was the Brunch held?
Tell us a bit about what happened at the Brunch.
We prayed together, we shared lives, we ate great food, and we grew our community a little bigger that day.
What was your feeling going into the Brunch, and what was it coming out of the Brunch?
I love hosting brunches. Hospitality is one of my charisms, so I was super excited to welcome others into this wonderful community!
I loved hosting, and we set a date for the next brunch, plus there was enough interest for a small group to start!
What's next for you personally and/or for the group?
We set the date for the next brunch... and now I'm hosting a small group.
What advice do you have for someone who is interested in attending and/or hosting a Blessed Brunch but may be hesitant or fearful?
Do it! Listen, whatever that little voice that is discouraging you is, kick it to the curb.
Your house does not have to be Pinterest-worthy. You don't have to worry about the chairs, tables, etc. The ladies you are welcoming into your home are seeking authentic friendship, so don't let stress or worry take that away from you!
Where did you see God move?
The Holy Spirit brought waves of tears of joy, sorrow, grief, but most of all, joy to our group. Women who felt alone or isolated found that they are not alone and that they have a community of sisters who will be there for them!
