St. Anne Catholic Church, in Pleasant Prairie, Wisc., was established in 1998 to serve the
young and growing population west of Hwy. 31. As a relatively new parish, St. Anne is known for its warmth, generosity and hospitality, where families can grow and prosper through vibrant involvement in Parish life. The name St. Anne was selected in honor of a St. Anne parish in Milwaukee that had closed after 100 years. The Archbishop thought it was important to have a parish named after the mother of Mary in the diocese.
Our first Mass was celebrated on July 26, 1998 – the feast day of Sts. Joachim and Anne – in the cafeteria of Pleasant Prairie School. We celebrated Mass in our church for the first time on September 11, 2004. The church was dedicated on October 3, 2004 by Archbishop Timothy Dolan. Our offices moved to the church campus in March 2007 when the Parish Center was sold.
Today, there are more than 900 households that are part of St. Anne, with at least 50 percent of those households actively involved in parish life.
