Welcome to St. Mary’s Parish

St. Mary’s Church is located in Lyndon Station, WI. It is known as the Upper Cathedral of the dells. It was built by hundreds of Irish immigrants in 1899, and dedicated on May 8th 1900. St. Mary’s parish began in 1853 as St. Bridget’s Catholic Church. St. Bridget’s was formed in 1853 and was located at the present day St. Mary’s Cemetery; west of Lyndon Station on Highway J. St. Mary’s is the oldest parish in the Diocese of LaCrosse.

We are located just north of the Wisconsin Dells on Interstate 90/94, exit 79.

Christmas Memorial Poinsettias

Novena to conclude Year. Joseph

November 29 – December 7. A novena is nine days of prayer focused on a particular theme. This novena to St. Joseph is a fitting conclusion to the Year of St. Joseph declared by Pope Francis for the Universal Church and celebrated by the Diocese of La Crosse. Each day, you will reflect on a particular title given to St. Joseph. You’re encouraged toon Monday, Nov. 29 and conclude on Tuesday, Dec. 7, with the consecration to be made on Wednesday, Dec. 8, the feast of the Immaculate Conception and the closing of the Year of St. Joseph. As you pray, begin with the reflection, consider what intention(s) you would like to offer and conclude with the Memorare to St. Joseph. There are paper copies of the novena in the back of church.

Bake-less Bake sale

The donations for the bake-less bake sale will go toward the Christmas bags that we prepare and deliver to all of the home-bound of our parish and the Lyndon Station Elementary School with much-needed supplies. Please consider donating, by using the green envelopes found in the vestibule. Unfortunately, no food donations will be accepted for the home-bound bags. You may drop the envelope in the weekly offertory basket or mail to the parish office. Please make checks payable to “St. Mary’s Ladies Sodality”. We would appreciate all donations by this Wednesday, December 1st for shopping convenience. We cannot tell you how much the home-bound bags were appreciated and the teachers and the children were so happy to receive our donation last year! Thank you for your past support!
