St. Dominic Catholic Parish has a long history and, therefore, we have various locations associated with our parish. Our current campus is located on Capitol Drive and has expanded over the years with added facilities—the Prayer Gardens of St. Dominic and the St. Dominic Baseball Fields. The St. Dominic Cemetery is located near Lisbon and Marcy Roads where the original Marcy Church was located.

Safety and Security
St. Dominic Catholic Parish takes the safety and security of our children, visitors, members, and staff seriously. A variety of safety measures have been put in place in coordination with the local police and fire departments. Please be advised that cameras are in place throughout our campus.
St. Dominic Cemetery
St. Dominic was founded as a pioneering mission of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Milwaukee. The original lannon stone church building dedicated to St. Dominic was located on a site at West Lisbon and Marcy Roads. it was affectionately known as "Marcy Church." Some records indicate that this was the first Catholic Church in Waukesha County. In August 1986, the old Marcy Church was in such ill repair that it was demolished for safety reasons.
The St. Dominic Cemetery is still located at this site. It is closed for new burials.
Columbarium at the Prayer Gardens of St. Dominic
Having gained necessary approvals, St. Dominic Catholic Parish intends to construct a columbarium as an extension of the St. Dominic Prayer Gardens in Fall 2020. This columbarium will provide an option to inter loved ones in a Catholic columbarium, on church property remaining at St. Dominic, their church home, in an environment cared for by the community of parishioners for generations to come.
The columbarium supports and nurtures the Corporal Work of Mercy – to bury the dead – with reverence, respect, and dignity; and the hope of the Resurrection that is expected by the Church.

Prayer Gardens of St. Dominic
The Prayer Gardens of St. Dominic are dedicated to the greater honor and glory of God, and his abiding presence and blessing in this faith community. The Gardens provide comfort to those seeking a quiet place to reflect and remember. It is a place for rejoicing with a newly married couple and place to gather for First Communion and baptismal photos.
There are eight themed gardens in the Prayer Gardens of St. Dominic:

The Memorial Plaza is a place to remember loved ones and lies at the main entrance to the Gardens. In the center of the Gardens is the statue of St. Dominic, our parish patron saint. On the terrace is the cross of Christ rising above, and overlooking the Gardens and shrines.
