We are the Pompeii Men's Club

The sign reads POMPEII SQUARE. Many people have driven past this tiny strip of green space while exiting 794 on their way to Summerfest or the Milwaukee Art Museum. Many have wondered what that sign means.

That small green space was actually where the first and only Italian church stood in the City of Milwaukee, THE BLESSED VIRGIN OF POMPEII CHURCH. It was known locally as “The Little Pink Church”.

Officers: Get to know us

After our childhood church was torn down, a group of dedicated parishioners came together in 1968 to form a nonprofit organization called THE POMPEII MEN'S CLUB. Our mission is to perpetuate the memory of the Blessed Virgin of Pompeii parish along with our faith, spirit and ethnic background. The club's motto is "Together in Unity,"  and has approximately 124 active and non-active members. Our members include priests, attorneys, judges, public officials and anyone who wishes to carry on the traditions of the founders.

Our Members

It starts with Community

Our club’s goal is to raise funds for scholarships for underprivileged children entering Catholic High School. All money collected stays in the Greater Milwaukee Area. If you would like to make a donation to the Pompeii Men's Club Scholarship fund, mail checks payable to Pompeii Men's Club Scholarship Fund and mail to Chuck Lazzaro 6213 Mansfield DR. Greendale, WI 53129.
