St. Vincent Pallotti, Milwaukee

Our Parish Roots:

As a combined parish, we are enriched by our deep history with the Capuchin Friars and the Pallottines. In 1879, the Calvary province of Capuchin Friars accepted three acres of land (donated by Bishop Henni) to create Holy Cross as a new parish meant to care for the existing Catholic cemetery.

In 1921, the Capuchin Friars transferred the parish to the Pallottines, and Fr. Schroeder was the first Pallottine pastor. In 1923 a new mission church was built and dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua and in 1925 was declared a parish.

On July 1, 1998, the parishes of Holy Cross and St. Anthony of Padua were merged to create a new parish, St. Vincent Pallotti. Holy Cross is now referred to as Pallotti East and St. Anthony of Padua as Pallotti West.

St. Vincent Pallotti is a vibrant gathering space for a growing Catholic community of more than 300 families, welcoming a rich and diverse parish life for all Catholics in Milwaukee and surrounding regions.

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.

Final Total Pledged


Open AllClose All

For us to continue to be faithful stewards of God’s gifts, we need to invest in our East and West church buildings to maintain their beauty that inspires, invites, and gives glory to God.
Our planned projects include, but are not limited to, repairing and replacing the gutters and soffits at the east site, restoring the parish bells that call us to Mass, and repairing and upgrading our entrance doors at both the east and west sites. All upgrades will protect our parishioners, staff, and visitors from natural elements, reduce the risk of unexpected damages, reinforce the structural stability of our historic buildings, and allow our parish to continue to be a vibrant beacon of God’s Word.
