Diocese of LaCrosse COVID update


A Year Devoted to St. Joseph  – May 1, 2020 to December 8, 2021

On Friday, May 1, 20202, Bishop Callahan began a special year of thanksgiving, petition, and honor to St. Joseph with a special Mass, which can be viewed here.  During this time, the Diocese will offer prayers for his blessings upon our families (Patron Saint of Husbands, Fathers, and Families), our beloved dead (Patron Saint of a Happy Death), and the special needs of our Diocese (Patron Saint of the Universal Church).

As we make our way through the year, several events, prayers and novenas will be available for publication in parish bulletins.  Please follow the Diocesan website diolc.org/year-of-st-joseph for further information and possible events.
