About Us
We share a campus with the Dells-Delton United Methodist Church and are part of an active vacation/resort community that offers both excitement and solitude.

In 1970, Holy Cross Episcopal Church, Lake Delton and St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Wisconsin Dells combined to form Holy Cross Episcopal Church.  We then partnered with the United Methodist Church to build one worship space for both parishes to share.  In 1972, the building was finished and consecrated.
