"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.
