Each year during the holy season of Advent, your generosity and donations provide the poor in the greater Milwaukee area with what they truly need to survive! A humbling thought indeed! 

Christ King and Saint Bernard Parishes typically collect items to help the poor who are served by these three charitable organizations: All Saints Parish, Catholic Charities, and Saint Vincent de Paul Society. 

We ask for donations of NEW, UNWRAPPED items to be dropped in bins found at church entrances throughout the Advent season. 


All Saints Parish is located at 4051 N. 25th Street, Milwaukee. 

Parish Partnership Vision of All Saints, Christ King, and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux Parishes: Together our parishes seek to expand the vision of parish boundaries through direct service and friendship. Our partnership will complement and further expand our mission:

  • to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in Word and Eucharist; 
  • to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the people of Milwaukee’s central city and beyond to Wauwatosa; 
  • to work for justice for the poor and the powerless; and 
  • to build up and foster a multi-racial and multi-cultural (Catholic) community of faith, hope and love.

As people of the Eucharist, "really partaking of the body of the Lord in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread, we are taken up into communion with Him and with one another." [Lumen Gentium Chapter 1:7]

Catholic Charities, inspired by Christ’s call to serve, is the US Catholic social services organization founded in 1910, whose mission is to provide support to those in need, to advocate for justice and to call upon others to do the same. Its vision is to improve the lives of those it serves, to empower the most vulnerable, and to help reduce poverty through quality, compassionate, and effective human services.
