St Mary of the Lakes Catholic Church is a place to worship and to enter into a deeper and more intimate union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

One of the most precious gifts that we can give each other is our prayers. If you have anyone that needs our prayers, please call Corene Olson 218 863 1444 to have their name(s) put on our prayer chain.
