Welcome!

Mary, Mother of the Church is an active, prayerful, celebrating, Catholic community in La Crosse, Wisconsin. We invite you to visit our parish family. You are welcome here! Our Masses are at 4:00 Saturday, 8:00 and 10:00 Sunday. Come share in our parish prayer.

Pardon Our Construction

This summer, the east end of our church is a construction zone. Our Greeters will see you safely to good seating. Scrip will be available in the gathering space. Both restrooms and the mother's room are inaccessible; please use the restrooms in the parish hall. Parents who need a quiet space may use the parish hall; you can watch and hear the Mass on the TVs.

We're Hiring

We are in search of a person who will be responsible for guiding our young people in their faith. The title is Coordinator of Youth Faith Formation, a new role at MMOC. Please pass along this job description to anyone you think might be a good fit.

His Life. His Mission. Our Focus.

We've been talking about the question, "What comes after 'Building Our Future Together' is accomplished?" On the weekend of Feb. 26-27, Fr. Konopa spoke after Masses about the themes and ideas that have emerged. You can watch a video on our channel. The third presentation, March 19-20, is also on video.

Please Let Us Know When Someone is in Hospital

When you or someone you love is in hospital, we would visit you, pray with you, and bring you the sacraments. However, due to regulations, hospitals will not inform us when one of our parish family is in care. Please ask someone to call us at 788-5483, ext. 2. Thank you.

Using the Parish Hall

In response to many requests, MMOC has adopted a rental policy (PDF) about using our hall and education center for parish and other events. If you would like to hold an event at MMOC, please complete our request form and insurance form (PDF) and send them to the parish office.

Diocese of La Crosse Guidelines for Reporting Instances of Child Abuse

The Diocese of La Crosse, through its policies and procedures, seeks to provide a prompt, appropriate and compassionate response to reporters of sexual abuse of a child by any diocesan agent (bishop, priest, deacon, employee, religious, vendor or volunteer). Anyone wishing to make a report of an allegation of sexual abuse should send that report to Ms. Teresa Brown, Complaint Intake Agent, at the Diocese of La Crosse, P.O.

Individuals are also encouraged to take their reports directly to civil authorities. Copies of the diocesan policy are available through your local parish and on the diocesan website.
