Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021


Divine Savior, Fredonia


Our Parish Roots:

The Catholic roots in our community trace back to the mid-1800s, when farmers built the original church buildings in Lake Church, Holy Cross, Little Kohler, and Waubeka.

Divine Savior Parish is a new parish formed in June of 2012 by the merger of St. Mary Parish, Lake Church, and Holy Rosary Parish - Fredonia.

Current families owe a debt of gratitude to those first immigrant farm families, and to the many hard-working Catholic families that came before us and worked so hard to keep a vibrant Catholic presence in our area. Many of our current parishioners are decendents of those first families, and can share stories of their ancestors who helped lay cornerstones for former or current buildings; those who sacrificed physically and financially to help build a strong faith foundation that we hope to carry forward into the future.

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 make capital improvements to our worship sites, pay for our newly installed Holy Cross Chapel roof, and strengthen parish ministries.

  WORSHIP SITE IMPROVEMENTS - $163,774

We have been blessed with wonderful buildings where we can come together as a parish familiy to celebrate the Eucharist, pray, and continue to do God’s Work in Fredonia. In order to continue to be good stewards of these buildings, and care for our houses of worship, there are many pressing capital projects that need to be completed. These improvements include: upgrading our current audio system to make Mass more accessible to all our parishioners, maintain our parking lots at Holy Cross and Fredonia sites, and make repairs to the steeple, vestibule, and interior at St. Rose Chapel.

  HOLY CROSS CHAPEL ROOF - $100,200

Recently, a new roof at our Holy Cross site was installed. In order to address this urgent need, our parish had to take out a loan to complete the construction on the roof. A portion of the funds raised in this campaign will be used to pay off the loan and set our parish up for a more stable financial future.

  STRENGTHEN MINISTRIES - $75,000

In order to remain a bright, vibrant, and growing parish, we also need additional funding that goes beyond our operating expenses. A portion of the funds raised will be used to support our minstries, furthering our mission and vision for years to come. These funds will be reserved to support important initiatives in Faith Formation, Outreach programs, and Divine Savior Catholic School.
