Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021

Annunciation, Fox Lake

Our Parish Roots

Annunciation Parish began in 1998 with the merger of three local parishes to serve the communities of Dodge and Columbia counties. The roots of all three of these parishes, St. Mary's of Lost Lake, St. Gabriel's in Randolph, and St. Mary's of Fox Lake, began with immigrant groups in the early and mid-nineteenth century who, along with the hopes and dreams for a better life in the New World, brought with them their rooted faith in God and their desire to celebrate the life and tradition of the Catholic Church. 

We keep the legacy of their dedication today through our parish's mission of Word, Worship, Service and Stewardship. By living our lives in the image of Christ, contributing to the growth of our parish, striving at home, work and in the world to make known our faith in God and struggling daily to be faithful stewards, we ensure the work of Christ continues.

Our Share

Through much prayer, planning and conversation, we have identified our greatest needs and initiatives to strengthen our mission and vision for years to come. Our share of the funds raised will be used to begin structural repairs on the church, add accessible entrances, and replace coverings on the stained-glass windows. 

Parish Goal


Parish Share as of 6/27/22


Pledged as of 6/27/22


Open AllClose All

Our parish has welcomed visitors through its doors for over 2 decades. To make the entrance safer and more accessible for individuals, funds raised will go to repairing the stairs and improving the ramp on the east side of the building. This undertaking will expand on our previous work on the front doors and steps, which yielded a safer and more aesthetically pleasing parish entrance. 


The parish furnace, air conditioning and ventilation system in the church and reception hall needs updating to improve the temperature control and air flow throughout the parish buildings. Not only will this allow for greater comfortability in Mass and throughout the parish, but it will increase our energy efficiency and lower our expenses over the long term, allowing us to divert finances away from boiler costs towards ministry and mission outreach. 


Our beautiful stained-glass windows are a focal point in our worship space. To help us protect and preserve the windows for the future, we must replace and refurbish the outside plastic coverings on all windows. Additionally, the original window from St. Gabriel's is a prominent feature in our parish, and this funding will allow us to keep it in pristine condition and spotlight it's splendor. 


We want to ensure that we have resources available for other ongoing facilities repairs and improvements as they arise in the coming years. This will also improve security and safety for those attending evening meetings at the parish, especially given how dark it can get on winter nights in Fox Lake.
