St. Mary Catholic Faith Community, Hales Corners

Our Parish Roots

Since the early 1840s, St. Mary Catholic Faith Community has  been a fixture for Catholic life in Milwaukee and Hales Corners. From its humble beginnings as a log structure serving 140 families, to the 1893 “cream city” brick church, to our current complex completed in 2003, the parish has remained steadfastly committed to the ongoing transformation of Catholics.

St. Mary Catholic Faith Community is one of the oldest and largest parishes in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, with over 3,000 families registered. Our award-winning school and faculty serves 365+ students grades 3K – 8, instilling the word of God in our next generation.

The mission statement of St. Mary’s is “Celebrating spiritual growth, centered in Christ, through Word, Sacrament, and Service.” As we look to the next 180 years of St. Mary, we hope to remain stewards of our community, and continue to prosper through vibrant involvement in parish life.

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 do critical repairs and upgrades to our parish buildings, improve our technology and data systems and enhance our religious curriculum for all parishioners. 

Parish Goal


Wave 2

June 2022 - December 2022

Final Total Pledged


Open AllClose All

Over the last couple years, we tightened our budget as we retired our debt. This forced us to defer some critical maintenance projects to our aging campus  that now must be addressed. With the raised funds, we will resurface our parking lots and replace significant portions of our curb and sidewalks, as well as begin repairs to our roof, brickwork, doors, and windows. Our school building is also in need of capital improvements, including upgrades to the electrical and HVAC systems, as well as the classrooms, windows and doors.


In order to proactively grow our parish, empower evangelization and increase stewardship, we must invest in updating our technology and hardware systems used by the parish. This includes overhauling our data management systems, and updating our website, social media and phone systems to be more responsive to the call to make disciples.


Establishing post sacramental evangelization programming is integral to forming deeper relationships with parishioners as it allows us to walk with people on their Catholic faith journey. We  have struggled in the past to maximize the effectiveness of our religious programming due to physical and technological limitations. To relieve this, we will use funds to expand our meeting spaces and invest in up-to-date curriculum and learning equipment and technology for both school and adult formation.
