Catholic Charities Warming Center
The Warming Center will again be serving homeless adults at 413 South 3rd St., downtown La Crosse from November 1 through April 30. As in years prior to Covid, the Warming Center depends on volunteers to fill a variety of functions. Some provide supper, others register the guests as they check in, check their belongings and get them settled for the night while others come on duty in the early morning as the guests have breakfast and prepare for their day.
New Offerings for Young Families
To support faith formation in families with very young children, MMOC has three initiatives getting started in Fall 2022.
