"Building From Our Belief" Renovation Information
St. Katharine Drexel Parish, Beaver Dam, WI is postponing its church dedication which was scheduled for April 3 due to the COVID – 19 pandemic. We will have a major celebration later when all can safely attend this joyous event. The church is being finished as conditions allow; when the restriction for attending group events lifts, we will soon after schedule our dedication.
Our parish has spent long months (years!) assessing, planning, and fundraising for a major renovation of our worship and gathering spaces. We are grateful and proud to announce that we have raised about $3.5 million in promised funds, and are on our way to collecting those funds. Thank you to all of our generous donors and dedicated volunteers who have made this possible! Some of the work on the exterior of the church and the steeple has already been done, now that the funds have been accumulating.
Below are BFOB testimonials provided by parishioners:
In an effort to perform our pre-renovation due diligence, a feasibility study was conducted. Reviewing the study results can be done by clicking the link below:

What a wonderful blessing for us to have had Bishop Shuerman with us to dedicate our church! There are so many people who dedicated a lot of time for the preparation of this special Mass; we thank you! We also thank our parishioners, who have made this renovation possible! Your endless prayers, your time and financial support, and your love for this parish, has made this all possible. We are truly blessed beyond measure! We have been reminded in Joshua to be strong and courageous, to not be afraid or discouraged. And that we were! Mighty is the deed that is done in His name! Blessings to each and every one of you!
With tears of happiness, love, hope, and joy, your fellow servant in Christ,
