A CATHOLIC CREDIT UNION FOR YOUR PARISH - Minnesota Catholic Credit Union (MCCU) is a Catholic credit union that promotes sound financial practices mixed with values of the Catholic faith.  A financial institution where Catholic parishioners and Knights of Columbus feel at home.  And, fortunately, if you are a member of this parish, you are eligible for membership at MCCU.  Let’s face it; the credit union must be doing something right.  They have been serving Catholic families since 1935.  What’s the draw?  For one thing, members of the credit union don’t pay excessive fees.  Beside limited fees, you get better rates, higher dividends and PERSONAL service.  And, during these troubling times, first mortgages are available.  Support your Catholic credit union!  If you are not yet a member of this faith-based credit union, now is the time to experience the blessings of “member helping member, Catholic helping Catholic.”  For more information, call 763-354-2826 or stop in the office at 933 Manor Drive in Spring Lake Park.  Of course, you can always catch them on the web at
