The Knights of Columbus is offering a free coloring book as a gift for families and young children unable to leave their homes due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The printable Stations of the Cross coloring book features mosaics from the Via Crucis at the Church of the Mother of God in Mengore, Slovenia. Designed by Jesuit Father Marko Rupnik and the artists of Centro Aletti in Rome, these mosaics are a beautiful way to meditate on the passion and death of Jesus Christ.
Download and print your Stations of the Cross coloring book here.

In light of continued concern surrounding spreading the coronavirus COVID-19, and the advice of medical experts across the country and especially in our State, Bishop Callahan has directed that all public Masses in the Diocese of La Crosse will be cancelled until further notice.
Fr. John’s weekly 10:30 Sunday Mass is now being broadcast LIVE on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRKIiIONqTzbVOz0O4Y_1RA
In addition to Masses, all Religious Education (CCD) classes and other Parish gatherings are also canceled.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available with private confession only (behind the screen, not face-to-face) as follows:
Please note that the church will remain open for private prayer. Along with Bishop Callahan, we urge the faithful to remember in their prayers all of our brothers and sisters whose personal lives and the lives of their families have been affected by this disease. Visit diolc.org to send Bishop Callahan your personal prayer intentions.
At this point we are hopeful to resume public Mass by May 1, 2020. As you know, plans and regulations change every day and this date is very much subject to change.
It is important that parish stewardship continues during this time. Please mail your weekly contribution envelope to your respective parish.
The COVID-19 outbreak is unprecedented in our lives and we rely on the providence of Almighty God and His Holy Mother. Please stay well and take every precaution to do so. Along with Bishop Callahan, we hold you in our prayers, confident in our protection under the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
