Fr Will Arnold
Originally from Milwaukee, I grew up in the Enderis Park neighborhood and attended Catholic grade school in Wauwatosa and then high school at Brookfield Academy. In 2012 I graduated from UW-Milwaukee with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. While attending UWM I grew in my faith, committing myself to a prayer regimen, frequent Mass and confession. With the encouragement of a priest-friend, I quietly began discerning the priesthood as I felt the Lord’s nudgings and heard His call. I entered St. Francis de Sales Seminary to study to be a priest for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in August of 2012. After completing six years of seminary formation I, with great joy and excitement, anticipate ordination to the priesthood on May 19th and then look forward to serving as the new associate pastor of Christ King and St. Bernard parishes.
As the fourth child in my family, I have one brother, four sisters and eight nieces and nephews living in the Milwaukee area in addition to my mom and dad. I must confess that I consider myself a bit of a homebody spending free time relaxing by drinking coffee, eating donuts or cookies (usually both) and watching Westerns.
