Life Chain on Losey Oct. 7
The La Crosse Life Chain will be held on Sunday, October 7, and starts at the corner of La Crosse Street and Losey Bouelvard from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Stand with thousands of pro-lifers throughout the USA in a peaceful and prayerful public witness for one hour praying for our nation and an end to abortion. MMOCís corner captains are Kerry & Sue Groetsch. Please join them and fellow parishioners at the corner of Losey Boulevard and Madison Street where they will have signs for you (a suggested donation of 50 cents per person or $1 per family). Even if you only have a few minutes, please come and join us in standing up for Life!
Keeping in Touch with the myParish App

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.

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.
