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 our Pastor Father Clayton Elmhorst to St. Mary’s.


Whether you’re visiting Lyndon Station, passing through or planning to move here, we welcome you!

Remembering the Dearly Departed

The saints are people who said “yes” to God’s plan for them and are now in Heaven. Some were children and young people, some were mothers and fathers, some were monks, priests or nuns, and some were single people. On All Saints’ Day we praise and thank God for what He has done for us through these holy people. We ask the saints to pray for us that we might love our God and neighbor the way Jesus taught us. On All Souls’ Day, we pray for all people who have died. We ask God to bring them to the joyful banquet of Heaven to be with God and the saints forever.
