Social Justice

MMOC does not have a social justice committee per se. However, several groups and individuals within the parish work to meet needs within our community. Here are just some examples:

Jail Ministry

St. Dysmas➚ is also known as "the good thief on the cross" and it is under his name that MMOC supports a jail ministry. There are some red, plastic bins in the Cry Room. These bins are to hold items donated for those in our jails here in La Crosse. Specific requests include: pencils, pads of lined paper, stamps, plain legal/letter size envelopes, playing cards, blank greeting cards, paperback books (no romance novels please), paperback bibles, recent appropriate magazines (especially automotive or outdoors). Items can be left in the red bins and will be delivered to the jail ministry.
