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.

Thank you.

Video recordings of homilies at MMOC are now available; click "Homilies" near the top of this page. You can also get the videos on your phone via our app. The videos are closed-captioned (CC) for our sisters and brothers in Christ who have a hearing impairment.
