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 Father Clayton Elmhorst to St. Mary’s.

The Star of Bethlehem

Come watch the documentary on the big screen in the church basement! Thursday, December 12, @ 6:30 p.m. “The film presents a magnificent display of the evidence to support the claims made for the Star of Bethlehem, done in a way that engages even the most hostile viewer in an entertaining and easily understandable format. This amazing documentary underscores the Biblical words that ‘The heavens declare the glory of God.’ to do our part of fulfilling Christ’s mission for the Church. …A film that will enthrall the whole family!”

Church decorating for Christmas is December 17th after the 5:30 p.m. Mass.

The Giving Tree

There is a small tree in the vestibule that has cards with local children’s needs on it. Please take a card, purchase the item listed on the card, and return the item with the card to the tree. In addition to the card items, the Lyndon Elementary school is in need of glue sticks and children size mittens and gloves that are water repellent. Items and cards are due by the 1:00 Mass on December 15th. Contact Linda Lochner @ 847-867-4941 with any questions. THANK YOU for helping bring joy to local children this Christmas!
