St. Therese is trying some new fundraisers this year, and one that we decided on is a Craft Fair, which will be held on November 7th/8th. For all of the details, including the application and volunteer forms, please visit our Craft Fair page. Here are a few of the specifics that we need help with:

  • To any quilters out there—we are reviving the Little Flower Quilters to create a beautiful item for the Craft Fair’s raffle. If you are interested in helping out, please come to an informational meeting on Wednesday, July 22nd at 7:00pm in Miriam’s Corner.
  • We need plenty of crafters to fill Heck Hall. A 10′ x 10′ booth (including table and chairs, if you want) is only $50 for the two-day event. If you don’t want to host your own booth, how about donating an item or two that St. Therese can sell? We also need larger handmade items for our raffle.
  • Are you able and willing to help out on the weekend of the event? We need everything from set-up and take-down helpers to raffle ticket sellers to popcorn poppers!
  • We appreciate any monetary donations as well. If we are able to cover the costs of the licenses and food up front, then everything we take in that weekend will be profit!

Thank you to those of you who have registered already! We’re looking forward to a very crafty weekend in November. If you have any further questions, please contact the craft fair coordinators or leave a comment below.

St. Therese Festival 2009

June 22, 2009 by admin

It was the decision of the Parish Council with support of the parishioners in October of 2008 that St. Therese Parish will no longer be hosting a summer festival. We would like to thank everyone who has attended in the past, all the volunteers who worked numerous shifts, and all the vendors who put forth a great effort each year. We appreciate everyone who gave of their time, talent, and monetary donations to make our festival successful for so many years.

We are looking into having some different fundraisers this year, so please keep checking back for more information.

Thanks again for your interest and continued support.

Strategic Planning

April 28, 2009 by admin

This post is from the Strategic Planning Committee of our Parish:

Two years ago, St. Therese undertook a strategic planning process. Its intent was and is to provide focus and direction to the parish over the next five to seven years to assure its strength and vitality. The plan encompasses the feelings, ideas, and comments the St. Therese community expressed in a survey that was taken at the start of the planning process.

It was not directed by the Archdiocese, nor is it connected to the current Faith in Our Future Capital Campaign. This plan is St. Therese’s. As a valued member of the parish, we would like your input before the document is finalized and presented to the Archdiocese.

Please read through it and give it your serious and prayerful consideration. Let us know your thoughts by emailing We will respond though it may be a few days. If you prefer not to email or do not have that resource available, please contact Jim Balliet at (414) 651-4425.

Thank you for your time. We look forward to hearing from you.

This is a large document, please be patient while it loads. Click here to download the St. Therese Strategic Plan

We are looking for stories from parishioners (old and new) about how living your Catholic faith at St. Therese has enriched and influenced your life. It can be a story of love, loss, celebration, sacrifice or struggle; a memory of someone or something that touched your life and made you smile; a reflection upon the peace your faith brings you. We know there are many such stories and we want to hear them and share them with our St. Therese community. If you have a faith story to share, please write it down and drop it in the collection basket with a label “Faith Story,” email it to us at, or click on “Comments” immediately below this post and submit your story right here. We need these stories absolutely no later than March 29th. (Please note that by submitting your story, you are giving St. Therese permission to reproduce it in print documents for our Faith in Our Future Campaign.) We have “Faith in our Future” and we want to hear why you do, too!
