About St. Mary's Immaculate Conception Parish - Custer, WI

Visit website

One-half mile north of the small settlement of Custer, Wisconsin, standing on the hillside, is a Catholic Church dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of Mary, usually known at St. Mary’s. The first Mass was celebrated in 1840 in the home of Owen Fehely. This home was on the north side of Highway 10. The first settlers were mostly Irish immigrants coming directly from Ireland. Some Polish families had settled in and around Stevens Point, WI but came in greater numbers in the 1860s. The spiritual needs of the people were in the care of missionary priests, some coming from Milwaukee.

In 1853, St. Stephen’s Church was established in Stevens Point and the people of Custer were visited quite regularly by the priests of that parish. In 1875 the church in Custer was built under the supervision of contractor Michael Herbert. Most of the work was done by the parishioners. On November 16, 1875, the church was dedicated by Bishop Francis Xavier Krautbauer, the second bishop of Green Bay. On January 7th, 1946 the parish was transferred to the Diocese of La Crosse during the time of Bishop Alexander McGavick.

Since that time, the parish has undergone many changes with a new front entrance, choir loft, and bathrooms. A new side addition was added in the 1970s. Through the past 145 years many changes have occurred but the Holy Spirit has remained an intimate part of the lives of the people of Saint Mary's Immaculate Conception Parish in Custer.
