About Us

Welcome to Saint Catherine of Alexandria Parish Community!
We are the oldest Catholic parish in Waukesha County, established in June of 1847.  Our parish was founded by Irish Immigrants thirteen years before Wisconsin was even named a state, and before the Archdiocese of Milwaukee was established.  This land was called a “territory” that was part of the Archdiocese of Detroit, Michigan. Our parish is a beautiful piece of history, steeped in the many stories of the struggles, joys, sorrows and love of God’s holy people.  We are a large parish community that still has a small town, friendly, caring community feeling.  Our love and concern radiates from each member to anyone who walks through our doors. We are a Roman Catholic Community that strives to live in the light and example of Pope Francis I, committed to showing unconditional love to all who are seeking a place to belong.  The doors of St. Catherine of Alexandria in Mapleton, Wisconsin are open to all.
