Welcome to St. Mary’s Parish

The Oldest Parish in the Diocese

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.
In the Lyndon Station area, 153 families currently call St. Mary’s their home parish.
On March 1, 2017 our parish welcomed Father Clayton Elmhorst to St. Mary’s.

You may also feel afraid or unsure how to open up a discussion about your own relationship with Christ. Learn simple skills to accompany others on their journey to Jesus. This annual Conference is for EVERYONE! There are brochures on the back table for more information and to register. Or go to diolc.org/catechesis/witnesses-for-christ-conference-2019

The next program in Central Wisconsin begins with a weekend August 9-11, 2019 at St. Anthony Spirituality Center in Marathon. “We Needed to Refresh Our Marriage …It was wonderful. This program should be part of everyone’s marriage…We learned so much about each other we didn’t know!” See comments from program participants at www.HelpOurMarriage.org. For more information call 1-877-922-HOPE (4673) Fully Confidential. Early registration is recommended!

Have you ever offered a Mass for someone?

The mass is a great way to pray for someone. It is the greatest prayer. One received much grace and healing through the power of the mass. It is most beneficial for the living. It is open to almost any intention and the remembrance of a loved one cannot be celebrated any better. Please take time to think about offering an intention for Mass for your family, farm and community. Nothing is too great or small in Christ’ Sacrifice.

Do you want to join St. Mary’s Parish?

All are welcome! Our hope is to fill our Parish with New Members! If you’d like to register, you can either call or stop by the parish office during office hours, or email: stmaryparishlyndon@gmail.com
