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 start our prayer chain.
