St. Olaf Parish 


In 1948, 28 families gathered together with Father Nicholas Schneider (organizer and first pastor) to give their support to the establishing of a church in DeForest.  St. Olaf’s is now a vibrant Catholic community of over 800 families. 


The St. Olaf Parish Endowment Fund supports Catholic faith formation and education.
