I wanted you to know that your board voted to send two $300 gifts recently-one to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) for Syrian refugees fleeing oppression in their country. They are caught at the Syrian/Turkey border and these funds will help those who are trying to assist them. 70% of these people are women and children and they are outside in freezing weather. The second gift is going to the Lutheran Campus Center to assist their student mission trip to the US/Mexican border to help them understand the situation there. Pastor Corrine Haulotte and several other adults will be accompanying the students and upon their return, they will give the community a presentation. They are trying to raise $2000 for this purpose and are about half way there.
This week marks our final Sunday in Extra Ordinary Time until after Lent and the Easter Season. This next week, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 26. All Are One will not have Mass that day, but you can receive ashes on Sunday, the First Sunday of Lent, March 1 if you wish.
Come; be with us this week!
Peace and love,

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.”
