Milwaukee, Blessed Sacrament
Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021

Blessed Sacrament, Milwaukee

Our Parish Roots

The original Church concept for Blessed Sacrament was born on March 2, 1926 when Archbishop Messmer appointed Father Bernard Kobelinski as the organizer for a Church being planned to fill the need for churches in Southwest Milwaukee.

Blessed Sacrament’s current site was chosen after thirty people signed a petition requesting for a Parish to be built in Jackson Park. More than 3,000 people attended the cornerstone dedication ceremony in June 1926 with a Solemn High Mass offered on a temporary altar.

The completed church-school building was blessed by Archbishop Messmer on November 20, 1927. Our school building remains at the same location, meeting the full range of grades K4-8, with around 170+ students enrolled to date. Blessed Sacrament is a gathering space for a growing Catholic community of more than 550 families, welcoming all Catholics in Milwaukee and surrounding regions to join in celebrating Mass.

Our Share

Through much prayer, planning, and conversation, we have identified our greatest needs and initiatives to strengthen our mission and vision for years to come. Our share of the funds raised will be used to support our safety and security upgrades, high-efficiency upgrades, and parish finances. 


Parish Goal


Wave 1

January 2022 - June 2022

Open AllClose All

We will upgrade our security system to cover all areas in the school, the church, and our grounds as a part of our updated Emergency Operation Plan. We will install railings leading down to the worship space and at the entrance to our Parish. Our plan also includes upgrading our interior and exterior doors, purchasing AED devices, and providing our staff with CPR/AED and ALICE training. These measures will allow our parishioners, priests, staff, and visitors to feel safe and comfortable in our place of worship.


Blessed Sacrament Parish was built in 1927 and requires us to modernize our electrical, heating, and cooling systems. Our systems are not optimized to modern standards, leading to increasing annual costs on the Parish. An upgrade now will reduce the risk of unexpected failures, increase energy efficiency, offset growing energy costs, and save the Parish on maintenance and upkeep costs in the short-and-long-term.


We will enhance Blessed Sacrament’s financial health by establishing a reserve to ensure that we have sufficient funds to continue to bring our Parish programs and facility needs up to date when these needs arise. This will allow our mission and ministry to continue to grow in line with our priorities and our assets.
