Front Door Ministry

The Front Door Ministry is an outreach of the Cathedral parish to provide emergency assistance for food, gasoline and bus tokens. Limited funds are available for housing and utility bills for those who qualify. The Front Door Ministry is open from 9 a.m. to noon on Mondays. It is generally necessary to come in with appropriate paperwork depending on your need. You may reach the Ministry at 608.782.0322 ext 2. Please leave a message and someone should be back in touch with you within a couple of days.

WAFER Food Pantry

WAFER food pantry(located on the Causeway) is dedicated to providing food relief to those in need. Last year, we provided nearly 10,000 food packages to over 2400 La Crosse area families. Nearly 40% of those receiving food from us are children. Without the help of a dedicated and supportive community, this would not be possible.
