Cherish Christ Above All

A Message from our Pastor

Welcome to St. Benedict Parish!

St. Benedict is a vibrant, welcoming Catholic Community located on the western shore of Geneva Lake in Walworth County with easy accessibility from the Milwaukee, Chicago, and Rockford areas.  Whether you are already a parish member, a seasonal resident or are looking for a faith community in the peaceful and natural environment of serene Fontana, WI, I invite you to explore our website and join us in person.

St. Benedict has a rich tradition of faith reaching back 100 years.  We are a parish that emphasizes a strong faith community and good fellowship. We commit ourselves to the word of God through Eucharistic worship, lifelong faith formation and works of stewardship and community outreach.  We strive to imitate the life example of our patron saint, St. Benedict, by offering love and hospitality to our total community and toward all visitors to the Lakes area.

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our programs and get a glimpse of who we are, but only a glimpse. To fully understand us, please join us for a daily or weekend Mass, or for one of the many programs and activities we have to offer.  Feel the welcoming spirit that comes when people gather, work and celebrate together.  Enjoy the website then join us as we celebrate the good news of Jesus Christ. We’d love to meet you and share the positive atmosphere of our parish with you!
