Disciple Maker Index

We are participating in a parish-wide survey! 

St. Kilian will be participating in a parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute!  We need your help.

Please help us by participating in a 10-15 minute survey online.  The survey can be accessed at from February 23 and extended to at least APRIL 5th and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on our parish’s efforts to help you grow.  All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.

We are trying to get the highest response rate possible.  This information will be invaluable to the Parish, the staff and our various ministries as we plan for the future and strive to be the best disciples we can be.  We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.

If you don’t use the computer - there will be opportunities to complete the survey after daily and Sunday Mass and you can obtain a paper copy by contacting Joni Volkert, Parish Secretary at 262-673-4831 ext. 403..

Thank you for helping with this important project!


Christ Have Mercy Retreat: Jesus Invites You




March 23 and 30, and April 6
6 to 9 p.m. each evening


For 10 years, the Christ Have Mercy Retreat has been one way that adult members of our congregations can encounter the mercy of Christ, and accept an invitation from the Spirit of Jesus, to grow in faith through reflection on and the practice of the Works of Mercy. In addition to members of St. John and St. Kilian Congregations, the retreat is also open to members of other congregations.

The retreat is given by a community of individuals from our parishes who have made this retreat in the past. Important elements of the retreat are: reflective prayer, presentations on the themes of mercy by speakers and through use of the Scriptures, small and large group discussion, fellowship time, and shared meals. This retreat was written specifically for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee as part of the celebration of the Year of Mercy a decade ago.

The next retreat will take place at St. John Church in Rubicon in the church basement fellowship hall. It is a three-night commitment on three consecutive Mondays: March 23 and 30 and April 6.

Each of these Monday nights will begin at 6 p.m. with prayer and a meal prepared by members of the Christ Have Mercy Community.

Each Monday evening will conclude at 9 p.m.

During the retreat, there will be a special Mass and a celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
