Dear Friends,

With this weekend, we move into the last days of our Advent time of waiting.  Perhaps a good time, to take a breath, and amid the rush of the preparations, remember why we truly celebrate.  At the end of the day–it’s all about love–God’s love for us and our response in loving back, all in our midst.

Peace and love and all Christmas Blessings to you and yours,

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.”


 

Bulletin – 3rd Sunday of Advent

Mass on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 10 A.M. 


One last call to sign up for our Christmas pot-luck after our 4:30 Mass on December 21, 2019 at 4:30 P.M.  This will be a simple soup supper with Christmas treats! 


Remember our weekly collection of non-perishable food items for the Winona Food Shelf


Note:  Your board voted $300 for the 10 Days of Giving–good to remember that for each dollar given, Channel One, the Food Bank in Rochester that supplies food to our Winona food shelf, we can buy $2 worth of food!  


Check out the recent email I sent to the church about the clothes closet at the Senior High School sponsored by the students to assist other needy students.


Dear Friends,

This Sunday is a time to rejoice as we are called to ponder all that the Incarnation concretely means in our lives.

Come; ponder with us this week!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 2nd Sunday of Advent

Mass on Sunday, December 8, 2019, 10 A.M. 


Remember our Christmas pot-luck on December 21, 2019 after the 4:30 P.M. Mass–let me know if you can join us!


In January, we will be having board elections–we will for sure need one replacement to the board–please consider whether you might be called to this ministry.


Please continue your prayers for Eric B. and Katherine K.  


Dear Friends,

We continue to journey to the crib.  Something to reflect on might be the way Jesus came to us–not in splendor, but in poverty.

Come; reflect with us on what this might mean for our world; if we took it seriously.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 1st Sunday of Advent

Dear Friends,

Mass on Sunday, December 1, 2019 at 10 A.M. 


SAVE THE DATE:  December 21, 2019–Christmas Pot-luck after the 4:30 Mass. This will be a more simple meal–soup, bread and salad and of course, Christmas treats! Watch for a sign-up sheet soon! 


Schedule for Christmas-time liturgies: 

  • Christmas Eve Mass, December 24, 2019, beginning at 4:15 p.m. with carols
  • Christmas Day, December 25, 2019–NO MASS
  • Sunday, December 29, 2019–NO MASS–due to floors in our worship space being refurbished. Our board agreed that this was the best solution for us–trying to find another place at this time of year would be difficult.
  • January 5, 2020–Mass at 10 A.M. in our usual spot!

Continue to pray for Eric B. and Katherine K. and their families.


Our anthem beginning this Sunday is, “Come, Jesus come!” Advent begins and moves us into a beautiful time of waiting. Don’t rush the waiting.

Come; ponder all this with us this week!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL–I am most grateful for each of you! 

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – Feast of Jesus, Our Brother and Friend

Dear Friends,

Mass on Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 10 A.M.–Last Sunday of the Church Year!


Please pray for our parishioners, Eric Bartleson and Katherine Krage as they struggle with ill health and recovery.


SAVE THE DATE!  Saturday, December 21, 2019 after the 4:30 P.M. Mass, Christmas Pot-luck! This will be a soup supper with Christmas treats! Watch for a sign-up sheet soon!


ANNOUNCEMENT FOR OUR CHRISTMAS SEASON–Christmas Eve Mass on Tuesday, December 24, 2019 at 4:30 P.M.   The following Sunday, December 29, 2019, Holy Family Sunday, there will be, NO MASS due to the floors at Lutheran Campus Center being refurbished and not ready yet for our use on that Sunday.  I ran this by the board and they agreed, this was best.  I am sorry for this inconvenience. 


This Sunday marks the end of our Church Year–next Sunday we move into the holy season of Advent.  This feast, traditionally, at least in our time, has been known as, “Christ the King.”  I have suggested, for several years that we consider renaming it, “Jesus, our Brother and Friend,” as that speaks to a better relationship with Jesus.

Come; find out why!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
