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.

Annual Appeal

The end of this fiscal year’s annual appeal campaign is June 30th and we’re almost at 80% of our parish goal. If you have not pledged or donated, now is the time to do so. The parish will need to make up the difference. Envelopes are available in the back of the church or you can donate online @ diolc.org/donate-online/ Thank You!

Someone to Help

We’re still looking for someone to help out with some duties at the church such as replacing candles and watering flowers inside the church. The person would have training and unlimited help. If you’re interested at all or have any questions, please contact the parish office.

Did Someone Say DONUTS?!

That’s right!…Donut Sunday is BACK! After the 9:00 am Mass next Sunday, July 3rd, there will be donuts, milk, and coffee to be enjoyed by all. There will be a free-will donation which will go towards the replacement of the basement kitchen floor.
