St. Francis de Sales, Lake Geneva

Our Parish Roots

St. Francis de Sales Congregation was first organized by Fr. Martin Kundig in 1842. Fr. Kundig rode on horseback from Milwaukee to the various Catholic settlements in the area. During his monthly visits, Mass was offered in someone’s home with a simple table or wagon bed used as an altar.

Today, more than 1,000 families come together as members of St. Francis de Sales Parish. We are proud to have many active organizations within St. Francis de Sales who reach out into our community and beyond, carrying out our mission statement: We, the Community of St. Francis de Sales Parish, seek to LIVE JESUS through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit by ministering to the needs of our brothers and sisters through Word, Worship, Education and Service.

Growth and change have had their effects on St. Francis de Sales, yet the forces of faith have meant that the parish is still defined as it was in 1842. St. Francis de Sales exists today as a community of faith, with its members striving to be the expression of Christ and His church in Lake Geneva.

Open AllClose All

Our school has provided thousands of children with a quality Catholic education over the past 70 years. Our teachers and staff are second to none with their experience, knowledge, dedication, and love. Over the years we have done some building updates to keep up with the times, yet we know how much in education has changed. For some 60 in a classroom is how we were raised, unheard of today. Now serving 3 and 4-year-olds with a preschool section, we need more classroom space. We are also looking to add a science lab and activity lab for the elementary and middle school students. 4 classrooms can be added to the northeast corner of the school. This 2-story addition would provide secure space to expand our school offerings for the children of this community.


The roofs on the rectory and rectory garage are at the end of their useful lives. Look closely and you will notice that shingles are missing and curling. This needs to be addressed sooner than later and will involve a complete tear off as well as some plywood replacement and new gutters.


The boiler in the school is 28 years old and requires increasing service visits to keep it going. Replacing it will enhance efficiency and cost control.
