Welcome to St. Mary’s Parish

The Oldest Parish in the Diocese

St. Mary’s Church is closed until further notice.

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 Father Clayton Elmhorst to St. Mary’s.


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

*PLEASE STAY HOME so that you protect yourself, your family, neighbors and friends. As of March 24th, 2020, St. Mary’s Church will still be open during posted business hours. We will also post updates via our Facebook page and the church entrances. As of now the church building will be open most days from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
