Homily – 1st Sunday of Lent

Dear Friends,


Mass on Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 10 A.M. 

March is Food Share Month–please be generous! You can bring your donations any weekend in March. 

Upcoming Winona Interfaith Presentations!

  • Thursday, March 7 at 7 P.M. at St. Mary’s church, 1303 W. Broadway, “Going, Going, Gone.”  Young people are leaving churches, synagogues and temples in ever-increasing numbers.  Come and find out why–you may be surprised! 
  • Monday, March 11, rescheduled Puentes/Bridges Project at St. Mary’s church–speakers will share about their work in Wisconsin with undocumented farm laborers.
  • Tuesday, March 12 at 7 P.M. at Wesley Methodist, 114 W. Broadway, video, “A Fearless Heart” about Thupten Jinpa on compassion and its surprising and compelling benefits. 

Lent is upon us my friends! May this special time be of benefit to you and yours as it calls us to a closer relationship with our brother Jesus.

As stated above, we will not meet today for liturgy but ashes will be given out on Sunday.

Come; be with us this week!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

All Are One Roman Catholic church Statement as a Sanctuary Support Community

“We affirm that as a congregation of people of faith, we are taking seriously the call to provide sanctuary support in the Winona Sanctuary Network. We recognize that our immigrant neighbors are a vital part of our community and local economy and that due to a broken immigration system they have not all been allowed the legal protections that they deserve. To this end we will use our privilege and our resources to stand with our community members that are in fear of deportation. As a sanctuary support community we are able to do this by providing; prayers, security, time, money, advocacy, relationship, and fellowship to the degree that is within our power.”
