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 fact, the Gospel of John water is mentioned 23 times & has more than 70 allusions to water. Why are there so many references to water? Using “water” as our guide, we’ll dive into the depths of the Gospel of John to discover the meaning & significance of water.
