Catholic Community of Waukesha


“The purpose of ministry…is not primarily to save souls, but to bring about

a world community of love, freedom and justice.”

Excerpted from Lay Ministry: A Theological, Spiritual and Pastoral Handbook  by William J. Rademacher


Ordained and lay ministers’ relationships to our Catholic Faith Community consists of several dimensions:

  • Faith
  • Love of neighbor and community
  • Response to the Spirit
  • Accountability
  • Support of others’ ministries
  • Growth within the “weeds and the wheat,” which is our imperfect Church
  • Sacramental
St. William Parish has an abundance of ministries to meet these dimensions. Each ministry has a number of additional pages that will provide you with a wealth of information.
