About Us


OUR MISSION  We live by the Eucharist, Prayer, Works of Mercy, Formation of Faith.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we follow in the footsteps of Christ through love for the Eucharist, committing ourselves to prayer, outreach to those in need, and growing in knowledge and faith.  

OUR VISION  Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we follow Jesus to the Father in Heaven. 

As one Body of Christ, we are a parish community journeying toward our common goal of the Kingdon of God.  

We are a Catholic community of the Milwaukee Archdiocese, located in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, rooted in three histories. St. Katharine Drexel Parish was formed in 2003 from the merger of three parishes: St. Michael (Madison St.), St. Patrick (Maple Ave.) and St. Peter (Spring St.). Our current church building is the old St. Peter's church.  As a combined family, we are named after St. Katharine Drexel, who was born into a wealthy family in Philadelphia, but had a great love for the poor, especially Native Americans and African Americans. She was canonized by Pope John Paul II on October 1, 2000. Her feast day is March 3rd.

We are family orientated, cooperative and caring. We celebrate our faith through Word and Sacrament. Having worked together in shared ministries, we are committed to service and the work of justice. We extend Christian formation to all ages.  We are committed to youth through St. Katharine Drexel School and religious education programs. We encourage you to get involved with your parish, join an organization, choir, or actively help celebrate our worship services.  Share your time and talent helping others.  By committing yourself to help build the kingdom of God, you will feel like you belong.

Welcome to St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, where we welcome each and every person, member and guest into our parish community.
