St. Catherine of Alexandria Catholic Church is
known to many as "the church on the hill." Tucked away at the
northern edge of the City of Milwaukee, we are located just
southeast of 76th Street and Brown Deer Road. Since 1855, we've
strived to bring the presence of Christ to our corner of the
metropolitan area and to the world beyond.
We hope that your visit to our web site will give you a taste of
the community and holiness of this parish, that it will remind
you of past visits, or lead you to future discovery.
A warm welcome awaits you, as well as a prayerful community, and
a deep experience of the closeness of God.
Parish is committed to worshiping God and His Son, Jesus Christ in
the Holy Spirit. We are dedicated to living the Word of God by our
Christian example. We shall achieve this through service to our
Parish and stewardship of our time, talent and treasure.
