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.

Fall Floor Pledges

Folks, this fall marks our 2nd year in collecting funds for our floor project. Although the floors are finished, we’re still in need of funds. As of this week we’ve pledged over $60,000 and collected over $46,000. Our 3 year goal for the project is $75,000. Much of the immediate funds came from savings with the Diocese. We’re now in replenishment mode. Instead of collecting money and restoring our floor, (would’ve taken awhile) Please pray and consider fulfilling your pledge promise for our 2nd year. The floor looks beautiful and couldn’t have happened without your generosity and support. THANK YOU!
