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.

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 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! Contact the Parish Office for more information.

Ladies Sodality!

The next Sodality meeting is this Thursday, January 23rd, at 1:00 PM in the church hall. The ladies sodality is responsible for maintaining the sanctuary, altar, & liturgical goods; funeral luncheons & our Parish Ham Dinner. Please come and support the parish. This is a great time and place to get involved with the many church functions. Your help is most appreciated.

UNPLANNED Showing

January 30th 6:00 p.m. The most important movie you’ll see on the most controversial issue of our time! Some reviews of the movie and why you should come to the showing: “This movie will be an eye-opener. This issue is one no human being on the face of this planet should ignore.” “This movie is an honest story about a former Planned Parenthood clinic director. It is sensitive and truthful, and it does not pass judgement against those who have had abortions, those who perform abortions, or those who believe in abortion.” “The Unplanned movie will make you as sadly happy as it made me. I was so glad to see the truths about the abortion industry openly shown and preached. …it’s real and honest.” Also, Dan Miller, State Director of Pro-Life WI, will speak & answer questions after the showing.

Reminder: Juneau County March for Life

Sunday, January 26, @ 1:00 PM at the Juneau County Courthouse. We will walk around the courthouse, peacefully and prayerfully, for 47 minutes (one minute for every year since Roe vs. Wade), holding signs or carrying candles. There will be a reception at Reardon Hall at St. Pat’s Church following. There are fliers with more information in the back of church. Every hour of every day, 175 babies are killed by abortion. That’s three babies a minute!

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!
