Bulletin – Last Sunday of the Church Year

Dear Friends,

Mass on Sunday, November 26, 2017 at 10:00 A.M.–last weekend to bring in non-perishable food for the November collection for the Winona Food Shelf.

A wonderful Thanksgiving pot-luck supper was enjoyed by 24 persons last Saturday after the 4:30 P.M. Mass–many thanks to all who could be with us and for all the good food!

Remember the Interfaith Thankfulness Service tonight, if you are able to attend–see advertisement under “News Items.” 


We are at the end of our Church Year as this Sunday we will celebrate the Feast of Jesus, who, more than a “king,” is our brother and friend, the One, as Christians, we profess to follow.  Come; be with us on Sunday, bring your out-of-town guests–all are welcome, you know! A happy and blessed Thanksgiving to all–safe travels!

Love and peace,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 33rd Weekend in Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,

Mass on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 4:30 P.M. 

LAST CALL TO SIGN UP FOR THE POT-LUCK THANKSGIVING SUPPER AFTER MASS  ON SATURDAY!!


We continue to move toward the end of the Church Year in the next two weeks–we continue to be challenged to be our best selves, now!   Now is the time! As we look toward Advent, those four precious weeks of preparation for Jesus, our brother’s incarnation among us, let us consider perhaps one or two changes that we could make in our lives that would attest to the fact that we are not only Christian in name, but more importantly, in deed!

A happy and blessed Thanksgiving to all!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
