We are currently in the process of updating our database. We have recently converted from a desktop to a web-based program and have found that not all of the data has transferred, and that there are many updates that could be made in individual families records.
Please go online at https://connectnow.parishsoft.com/lacrosse. Set up a user name and password so you can access your account at any time. Review the current record, and update any information that you can. Please pay close attention to addresses, email addresses, home phone numbers, cell numbers, employment, adult children, etc.
Call the office with any questions. We thank you in advance for taking the time to help us with this endeavor.
