Saint Clare Center

The Saint Clare Center for Catholic Life provides education and formation for lay Catholics who seek to grow in faith and service.


Shaped by the Franciscan tradition and serving a diverse, ecumenical community, the Saint Clare Center helps students discern their individual callings and prepare for a wide variety of ministries.

The Saint Clare Center is based on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops document, "Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord," and offers guidance and direction in:

  • Intellectual formation
  • Human formation
  • Spiritual formation
  • Pastoral formation

The Center's many collaborative relationships with and within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee enable the delivery of adult formation to more than 3,000 lay Catholics annually - in two languages - through a variety of programs.
