Saints Peter and Paul
Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021

Saints Peter and Paul, Milwaukee

Our Parish Roots:

In 1889, Monsignor Leonard Batz dedicated a temporary chapel for the new Saints Peter and Paul Parish, and commissioned plans for a permanent church building designed by noted architect Henry Messmer. The cornerstone of this larger church was laid on June 1, 1890. Two years later, the church was solemnly consecrated, a step that required the church to be free of debt. This was accomplished through the generosity of Monsignor Batz, who underwrote most of the expenses with his own money!

  Church Updates

We hope to freshen up the interior of the church which has become faded through the years. We will replace the carpet in the church. In addition, we will paint the sanctuary and worship space, as well as complete other needed cleaning. These updates will ensure our church remains a prayerful and beautiful place to worship for years to come.

  Renovate Parish Center

With the funds from the campaign, we will renovate the dated parish center. In its current form, we are unable to fully utilize the space. This renovation will include space for parish meetings and social events. It will also enhance our family ministries and SPRED ministry, our beloved ministry for individual with special needs.

  Install Elevator

To fully access the entrance to the parish center and the church, we need to install an elevator. This elevator will allow all members of our community to fully participate in our parish events held in the parish center and the church.
