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.

Deacon Richard Sage

This week, we commended our brother in Christ, Richard Sage, to rest in the Lord. You can watch the video of his funeral Mass and read our Blog post here. Please continue to pray for him, his wife Mary, and their children and grandchildren, and all of us who miss him.

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 (PDF) and send it to the parish office.

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.
