Online Giving

We offer an option for people who prefer to make donations online, called Online Giving. Through this system you can give to support the parish (called Offertory) and/or to our Building Fund. If you have used online bill-paying, you'll find online giving very familiar. The system is operated by Our Sunday Visitor, a trusted name in Catholic publishing for over a century. Do you prefer to manage your money through your phone?

Using the Parish Hall

In response to many requests, MMOC has adopted a policy (PDF) about using our new 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 send it to the parish office.

MMOC on Facebook

To improve communication, we are transitioning to our Facebook page. Please give the page a "like" and "follow" so you will be notified when there is news.

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.

Homily Videos are Captioned

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.
