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.

Please be as generous as you can, and please continue to offer prayers for them and all those in need around the world.

SS. Simon and Jude, Apostles – Feast day: October 28th

Saints Simon and Jude disappear from the pages of the Gospels after the brief mentions of their names. Nothing is known of either of them with any certainty, not even where they evangelized or where they met death. As Apostles, however, we know with certainty that they were key factors in laying the deep foundations of the Church in the rock-solid substrata of the Middle Eastern culture in which they lived.

All Souls’ Day Mass

Tuesday, Nov. 2nd 5:30pm There will be a special Mass remembering those who have died this past year from our parish. At this Mass the names of the deceased will be read and family members will light a candle which will burn at all the weekend Masses for the month of November. Please come and support those families who have lost loved ones this past year.

Priest Office Hours

Fr. Potaczek or Fr. Chinnappan will be in the parish office on Wednesdays from 2:00 to 7:30 pm. This will give our youth an opportunity to interact with a priest and hopefully will be a convenient time for those who wish to sit down and discuss various issues. Walk-in and same day appointments are also welcome!
