St. Clare Catholic Church
St. Clare Catholic Church, Wind Lake
St. Clare and St. Thomas Aquinas parishes have been collaborating for a number of years and are now sharing one priest, Father Ed Tlucek. We are partners in mission! Fr. Ed Tlucek guides both parishes in collaboration as we work together for one common goal - to faithfully fulfill the teachings of Jesus Christ. While each church is separate, we are also united and we share feast day Masses, holiday Masses, special reconciliations, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation.
It was under the direction of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee that Vision XXI was issued, in 2009, to address the priest shortage. Our two parishes are considered a “Cluster” or “Linking” of two that collaborate on a regular basis to advance our individual parish needs. Together we are "Wind & Water," One Faith Community, Two Worship Sites.
