On behalf of our parish family, I wish to welcome you to Annunciation Parish and to thank you for visiting our parish website. Let me tell you a little about our parish. Annunciation Parish is a Roman Catholic congregation of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which is responsible for the pastoral ministry in the 10 counties of southeastern Wisconsin.
Annunciation Parish was a merger of St. Mary’s of Fox Lake, St. Gabriel of Randolph, and St. Mary’s of Lost Lake. We serve these communities as well as Cambria and other communities in Dodge and Columbia counties.
I became the Pastor of Annunciation Parish of Fox Lake, as well as the Pastor of St. Joseph Parish of Waupun on September 1, 2016. These two parishes have had a “Shared Pastor” since 2011. Rev. Michael Wild was the first Shared Pastor. The two communities are separated by 10 miles, linked by Wis. Hwy 68.
Deacon Steven Hayes shares in the pastoral ministry of Annunciation and St. Joseph Parishes with me. He has been serving these communities for more than 4 years.
I would like to extend to you an invitation to join us in prayer at any of our weekend Eucharistic Liturgies, or any other of our parish programs and activities. We pride ourselves on the warm Christian hospitality that we extend to everyone. Whether you come to share with us in prayer, attend a parish event or activities, or just to visit our beautiful church; know that you will always be welcomed as beloved sisters and brothers in Christ Jesus.
Please come and visit our website often and read our weekly bulletin. Take care and may God bless you and your loved ones with every grace and good gift.
Rev. John J. Radetski
