About Our Parish

St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church is a dedicated and faithful parish community, located on the west side of Madison. Our parish was founded in 1959. At that time, the parish served approximately 200 families. Since then, our parish family has grown to 2,500 families and counting.

St. Maria Goretti is an active and vibrant community through our school (serving 430 students), faith formation initiatives, outreach programs, and parish life ministries.

We encourage each other to grow in faith and love. We strive to accomplish this mission through worship and prayer, education, and evangelization in our community and world.
