Have you ever wondered what is behind the doors of this historic building at the corner of 9th and Main Streets in La Crosse?

We invite you to attend services in our beautiful sanctuary. Within this nourishing faith community, you can find friendship and resources for your journey to deeper faith.

Come and share worship, uplifting music, and fellowship with our extended church family. As Episcopalians, we welcome and respect everyone who enters our doors.

Whether you were raised in the Episcopal tradition or want to experience our liturgy for the first time, we pray you will find your church home in the city’s oldest continuously operating church.

 

Our mission is to know Christ and to make Him known to others. Parish ministry and programs nurture the spiritual health of children, parents, singles, and seniors. 


We partner with  organizations and agencies that support those who live on the margins of society.

 

Hospitality and outreach are essential aspects of our mission within and beyond our congregation. We offer Communion, blessings, anointing, guidance, and counseling to all. 

 

We provide live-streamed and recorded services and home visits to those who lack transportation or have physical limits. We honor special worship needs and welcome all certified service animals.

 

To learn about the past and present of our church, explore the rest of our website. Better yet, come to one of our services.* Others who have found this is the right place for their spiritual journeys are eager to meet you.

Taize  Service

5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 8

Taizé is a form of worship with simple chant-like songs, short scripture readings and prayerful silence that call us into deeper reflection on Christ's presence within ourselves and in the world around us. Hymns are only one or two verses long. Lyrics and melodies are simple, and are repeated several times, accompanied by the soft tones of a harp. 

 

The name Taizé comes from an ecumenical Christian community formed in France during World War II. Taizé prayer has been described as "evening prayer for all Christian faiths" . We invite family, friends, neighbors, and all who seek spiritual connection to join us. Enter the church through the Main Street doors or Vinter Hall on 9th Street.
