Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021

St. William, Waukesha

Our Parish Roots

Two years after purchasing a ten-acre plot of land for a third Catholic parish in the City of Waukesha, St. William Parish was established on June 25, 1957. Our parish name honors Rt. Rev. Msgr. William Miller who served as pastor of St. Joseph Parish in Waukesha for forty years. Our church building was constructed in 1960. From these humble beginnings, our community has grown and transformed with the addition of St. William School in 1961, formation of the Waukesha Catholic School System in 1990, construction of a new church building in 1992, and the creation of the Catholic Community of Waukesha in 2017. In the last sixty-five years, St. William Parish has more than tripled in size. As we look towards the future, we are guided by our mission: “We, the Catholic Community of Waukesha, transformed by the Holy Spirit, worship God; follow Christ through Gospel-centered lives; celebrate our diversity, welcome, love, and serve all.”

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 to improve integrated technology, address building maintenance projects, and upgrade the playground.

Parish Goal


Wave 2

July 2022 - December 2022

Final Total Pledged


Open AllClose All

By expanding and improving the use of technology across our campus, we can augment accessibility and security. We will upgrade our Wi-Fi connection across the campus to enhance our technological abilities. We will update the audio and video technology in the parish hall. This will help advance parish formation opportunities. This campaign also provides an opportunity to upgrade our current audio to make Mass more accessible for all our parishioners. We will install a fob system that will allow us to make our churches available for personal prayer and create a safer environment by controlling access to our buildings. 


To foster a safe and functional environment to worship, we must prioritize the maintenance of our buildings. Through this campaign, we plan to complete necessary repairs and improvements to ensure the structural integrity of our church and safety of our parish family for decades to come. The projects include:
• $300,000: Replacing the roofs over the gym, sacristy, and office 
• $100,000: Update  Parish Hall flooring and lighting
• $150,000: Upgrade school HVAC/boiler system 
• $120,000: Repair roofs and repaint exteriors of the rectory and Vercelli House. In the rectory, we will add an additional bathroom and replace the carpeting. 
• $20,000: Update exterior and interior campus signage.


We would like to upgrade the current playground equipment to provide a safe and fun environment for our children to play and learn together.
