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, 143 families currently call St. Mary’s their home parish.
On March 1, 2017 our parish welcomed Father Clayton Elmhorst to St. Mary’s.

We will be doing Adult Faith Formation entering into Lent. In March we will be hosting a Thursday Evenings faith formation night for all Confirmed adults. Stay tuned—our next theme will be the 10 week program on the Catholicism series.

Have Mass Intentions?

Please consider offering mass for a loved one, deceased or living at St. Mary’s Parish. There is no greater way to offer prayers, to the Heavenly Father then through His son in the Mass. St. Mary’s stipend account could always use more intentions for the year. We are booked till June; so come in and assign a date for your special petition. They are $10 per Mass intention. All and every kind of intention is welcomed.

Daily Mass?

Please Join me at Daily mass for a quick 25 min liturgy. You can be out the door in no time for work or the rest of your day. Come at 8 am for adoration before 8:30 mass — Fr. Clayto.

More Ministry Members Needed

Folks, now that the smoke has cleared and the dust has settled. (regards to the floor project) I want everyone to know I am planning for future Adult Faith Formation sessions. We’ll begin sometime late January early February, gearing up for next year’s lent. Please consider to help in this extra parish duty. We are in need of refreshing our usher, reader, Eucharistic minister and server list. Does your child want to serve? If so, they must be entering 4th grade and mature enough to help out during mass. Fr. Clayton will do his best to pair up and train servers before and during mass. This year Fr. Clayton would especially like more Eucharistic ministers, as he’d like to offer the Precious Blood to everyone who wants it. If you feel called to serve and would like to contribute more to the parish faithful please contact Fr. Clayton for more info. Thank you for all you do for the parish. God Bless!

St. Mary’s Annual Appeal

Our Goal for this year is $13,085.00. This Year, This Year, 49 families have given and pledged $10,960.00. Please help us reach this goal for next year. Thank you!

Floor Project

Thank you for your time in moving everything back upstairs Thursday afternoon. IT IS FINISHED as Jesus Says. We wrapped up in less than two hours. Both upstairs and downstairs. Please take time to offer thanks to Jesus during this time of Advent. Spending time with Him, and giving of yourselves is a great way to BE – a great way to live the Christians life! Thank you for your continued support and donations. Your generosity and gift is greatly appreciated. View New Floor Photos
