Welcome Home!

Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi…, where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.” (John 1:38-39)


All of us long for a sense of home. Whether it be with our families, our communities, or our places of worship, the sense of being grounded in God and one another is key to a healthy spiritual life.

Saint Olaf Parish is a vibrant, welcoming Catholic community on the north side of Eau Claire. Know for its social outreach, welcoming environment, emphasis on community, and familial atmosphere, we invite you to join us for a weekend Mass, one of our parish events, or just drop by the office and introduce yourselves. Allow us the priviledge of walking with you to deep our love of God and neighbor.

Our webpage will help you get acquainted with St. Olaf Parish. When you feel ready, drop us a line! We’d love to hear from you.

Sincerely in Christ,

~ Fr. James Kurzynski, Pastor of Saint Olaf Parish
