St. Anskar’s Community Benefit Series is a chain of ongoing events hosted by our church that seek to support the needs of the people of the lake country. Each of these initiatives helps us as a church to grow into our identity of “loving one another and serving our community”. They are also a powerful way for us to live out the commandments of our Lord to love our neighbor, care for the sick, clothe the naked, feed the hungry, and so much more. What a joy it is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and the good news of who we are at St. Anskar’s.

If you or anyone you know would like to be involved in any of these events please contact the church office or one of the team leaders listed below. All of these events are open to the public and we encourage everyone’s participation. 


Food Drive For the Hartland Food Pantry:

During the summer, supplies are always running low at our local food pantry. So every August we collect food and cash from customers visiting the local grocery stores. For more information, please contact Bob Gavin and Emilie Beaumont.

Trivia Night to Support the Lake Area Free Clinic:

We all know and love Trivia Night. However, this year we are going to use this event to focus more on raising money for the Lake Area Free Clinic in Oconomowoc. There are a number of ideas forming about how to change or augment what we have traditionally done to engage our community more in this event. If you would like to join in the conversation, please talk to Bill Webster and Sarah Hintz. Mark your calendars for Trivia Night 2018, which will be on FRIDAY, January 26, 2018!
