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.

Get your Ham Dinner Raffle tickets!

Please grab your tickets in the back of church. Ladies from the Sodality will be out in the back to collect and/or hand out your tickets. Reminder to use these as a perfect invitation to bring someone to St. Mary’s; reach out to those who have left, or those who are in need. Don’t be tempted to just buy all your tickets and be done with it. Take courage and do a little outreach. When you’ve exhausted all those options, then buy the rest—but at least give it a go and try. Also, Father Clayton is HOSTING a FAMILY BBQ, for whoever sells the most raffle tickets!

Liturgical Practices in the Diocese of La Crosse – Influenza & Coronavirus

In light of the high incidence of influenza and the recent Coronavirus outbreak, Bishop Callahan asks all pastors and parochial administrators in the Diocese of La Crosse to use their own discretion about inviting the exchange of the Sign of Peace and the distribution of the Precious Blood from the chalice. Individual members of the faithful can also determine for themselves whether to exchange the Sign of Peace with their neighbors or to receive the Precious Blood from the chalice. If a significant change in the situation surrounding the incidences of either influenza cases or Coronavirus occurs, further direction from the Diocese will be offered.

Lenten Observances

Lenten regulations to follow: 1. Again folks, Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are to abstain from meat completely on all Fridays in Lent, Ash Wednesday, and Good Friday. 2. In addition to abstaining from meat, Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday, until their 59th birthday, are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. A recommended fast from the Church: 1 small meal in the morning, 1 meal at lunch & 1 small meal in the evening. The two small meals together should not equal the size of the regular meal. When abstaining in Lent, always remember a spirit of detachment.

DISHES

There are many serving dishes and containers in the church hall from funeral dinners and other events which have not been picked up by their owners. Please go grab them and take them home. If they’re still there by the ham dinner, they will become church property. Thank you!

rosary

Want to Learn how to Pray the Rosary?

Join St. Mary’s Masses on Sunday to pray with Fr. Clayton the most beautiful of devotions – The Rosary of the Blessed Mother. Our lady of the Rosary is the title given to Our Lady whom appeared at Fatima. When she appeared to the three shepherd children they asked who she was. After 6 months of apparitions she revealed herself as ‘Our Lady of the Rosary’ right before the Miracle of the Sun. Come and pray the rosary at St. Mary’s, we have hundreds of instructional flyers and free rosaries for those in need. All are welcome!
