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.

TV Masses coming to St. Mary’s

This year I’m happy to announce that the Diocese of LaCrosse film crew is coming to St. Mary’s Catholic Church. We were invited by Michael Haight and asked to host this quarters “TV Masses.” We will also be joining Fr. Robert Letona and St. Paul’s of New Lisbon’s, to do so. Friends this is a great way to show off our parish. Tens of thousands watch these masses each Sunday. It’s a great way to participate in the ministry, but also doing something in solidarity with the Diocese. Please consider signing up for one of the 2 masses Tuesday afternoon. (in the back) The format will be as such: We’ll have 2 masses preceded by a 1/2 hour of preparation. We’ll need EMC’s, singers, readers & servers. I will also need to whip up a 2 min homily. All within the context of 28 minutes. So talk about ripping through it. Take a moment to consider coming. It’ll serve as daily mass too, and be a great blessing for our parish. Thank You!

Adult Faith Formation

Again, we’ll meet downstairs in the Church Hall. All are welcome. We will have opportunity to learn, eat and drink to our faith. BYOB & FOOD. Schedule will be handed out next month. Fr. Clayton will host and MC the evening. Thursday Evenings at 6:30 pm
