2019 Parish Directory
We are beginning the process of making a new MMOC parish directory! We're inviting all households in the parish to sit for a new family photo and be included in the directory. Please take a moment to look over the 2019 Directory FAQ. Our first photo sessions begin in July. Families with college-age children, we urge you to make a July appointment right away. Please use the online reservations system as explained in the FAQ.

Please Let Us Know When Someone is in the Hospital
When you or someone you love is in the hospital, we'd like to visit you, pray with you, and bring you the sacraments. However, due to ever tighter regulations at our area hospitals, they will no longer inform us when one of our parish family is in the hospital. Please have someone call us at 788-5483, ext. 2. Thank you.
