About our Parish

Our parish community shares a common history of worship in Defiance county that dates back to the 1850's. In July 2005 the two parishes of Marysdale Immaculate Conception and St Stephens, Delaware Bend merged to form Saint Isidore Parish. With the permission of the Bishop of Toledo, both worship sites were kept open and are used each week for Mass.

Be sure you check out our Parish Bulletin, updated each weekend. It has the latest announcements and parish events. Our Adoration chapel is open weekly from Sunday through Friday night at the Delaware Bend site.

Our twin parish is St Michael's Ridge, located about 11 miles to the East.
