St. Michael, Kewaskum

Our Parish Roots:

St. Michael Parish was incorporated on October 6, 1846. It is named after Saint Michael the Archangel, the patron saint of early parish leader Michael Rodenkirch. The original church was a small log building built in 1847, which was replaced in 1855 with a fieldstone church and again in 1884 with a larger brick church. On January 4, 1971, the church was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. Following a long history of steadfast faithfulness, parishioners rebuilt, and the parish remains vibrant today.

Our Share

Last year, the pastoral council solicited input from parishioners to help us direct Love One Another funds in the best way possible. The pastoral council considered all the ideas and forwarded recommendations to the finance council, which made the final decision to allocate funds towards a new sound system, relocation of the choir pews, and renovation of the sanctuary.

Our current sound system and speakers are outdated. Updated speakers and sound system components will make audio clear, crisp, and uniform throughout the church.


We plan to relocate our pews inside the church with the funds raised from the Love One Another Campaign. The choir pews will be swapped with the far-left bank of pews moving parishioners closer to the sanctuary. This will allow the choir and musicians to be in a location that can better support congregational singing. The adjustment will help with the overall sound and acoustics of our choir.


After the unfortunate church fire in 1971, St. Michael parishioners banded together to rebuild. Our current worship space is a testament to the dedication of our parishioners. It has not received any substantial updates in over 50 years. We need to continue investing in our worship space as the heart of campus, making it a place of beauty that inspires, invites, and gives glory to God. To accomplish this objective, we will renovate elements of the Church. This will include the following: replacing the sanctuary flooring with a more dignified material, enlarging the sanctuary footprint to facilitate liturgical movements, covering the brick walls, replacing the flooring in the nave, rebuilding the sanctuary reredos, and adding devotional niches.
