Tournament Champions!
St. Mary's Visitation 5th grade boys won first place in the St. Mary's Menomonee Falls Volleyball Tournament this weekend. Congratulations to the 5th Grade Gladiators and Coaches Mike and Margaret Thew!







Another successful Trivia Night took place in September. Many thanks to Mr. Falk for making this such a great event! Congratulations to our winners. The Kentucky Derby Team with the Volm, Cornell, Janusz, Lemberger and Selthafner couples won "Best Table". The lovely ladies in their hats and handsome gents in their bow ties and jackets added some class to the evening. Our Second Place winners were team Giampietro, Berens, Schlifske, Ragonese, Koenig and Fr. Berger. First Place went to our Teacher Table. A smart group and generous too. They donated their prize money back to Home and School. We are blessed! Thanks to all who volunteered to set-up and run the evening, and a HUGE thank you to all those who stayed to take down and put away chairs and tables, take the trash out, vacuum, etc. Many hands indeed make light work, and we cannot thank you enough for your help. Until next time.....Chris and Mary Kay Zukowski


A special thank you to Chris and Mary Kay Zukowski for a wild night of trivia!  What a blast!  Congrats to the teachers for the big win!  So glad to know our SMV teachers were the smartest people in the room!  Mr. Falk did an excellent job creating the questions and as MC for the night.  Please put this one on your calendar for next is a "do not miss" event!


October, the month of the Rosary


 "Among all the devotions approved by the Church none has been so favored by so many miracles than the Most Holy Rosary" 

Pope Pius IV


"There is no surer means of calling down God's blessings upon the family than the daily recitation of the Rosary" 

Pope Pius XII


"How beautiful is the family that recites the Rosary" 

Pope John Paul II


This beautiful devotion is passed down generation to generation, largely, through the family. We invite you to give a gift to yourselves and your family. Pray the rosary together. Join us as we pray the Holy Rosary as a parish family the 2nd Sunday of each month. When putting forth this small effort, you will surely enjoy the blessings and answers to your prayers.

Sunday, October 14th from 5:00 - 5:30 pm in the church.





Sunset Playhouse  is excited to be back with St. Mary's Visitation for our third year of theater class offerings.  Sunset Playhouse first started as the Elm Grove Players in the late 1950's and rehearsed in the basement of St. Mary's.  There is great history in the relationship between the two Elm Grove treasures.



The St. Mary's Visitation Children's Choir gave an outstanding performance of liturgical songs during Mass on Sunday, September 30th.  Their next performance will be on Sunday, October 28th at the 11 a.m. Mass.  Mark your calendar, you will not want to miss it.  Parishioners called the singing, "heavenly!"
