Father Francis Zalud of Abie, Nebraska, arranged for the organization of a new daughter parish, that of St. Mary's in nearby Linwood, Nebraska, and the building of their church. He appointed as their building committee Messrs, August Kletke, Mike Sorick, Frank Vitamvas, Jim Kays, and Frank Nichols of that community who along with the parishioners helped build the church and also donated financially.

Constructed in part of native lumber, this lumber was donated by Frank and Leopold Juranek, and cut from timber on their land. The new church was dedicated by Bishop Thomas Bonacum on September 8, 1901.

When the Abie parish lost its resident pastor, the parish of St. Mary was closed, and the parish boundaries added to that of Sts. Peter and Paul, Abie. The last Mass was celebrated at St. Mary's on January 26, 1969.
