Welcome to St. Mary's of the Lake and St. Benedict's Parish website.
Change in Mass Schedule
When we reopened after the Coronavirus shutdown, we added a 12:30 pm Mass on Sunday to provide additional capacity during the social distancing restrictions of the COVID pandemic. At that time, we were only sitting every other pew and spaced out at that. While we still keep a few pews taped off, the church in general is open for seating. Add to that, as it does each year, our attendance in winter is down. Therefore, we have ended the 12:30 pm Mass effective December 26th. We are maintaining our traditional schedule of 5:00 pm (Saturday) at St. Benedict’s and 8:00 and 10:00 am at St. Mary’s.
