Abstract: This work describes the role of the Catholic Church in Milwaukee, and the manner in which it served as the center of the religious and social life of the Italian American community in that city from approximately the 1880s to the 1980s.Topics discussed in this study are: Italian American and Irish American Catholic relations, the establishment of religious parochial schools, the struggle by Protestant and Catholic proselytizers to convert the immigrants and their children, and the sharp regional differences among the Italian immigrants which tended to undercut the Church as a social institution.
