News Item–Day Light Saving Time!

Dear Friends,

Even though we seem to be in a winter that isn’t ending, Day Light Saving Time begins tomorrow! With that in mind, the adage, “spring ahead” comes into play tonight or in other words, set your clocks ahead one hour in order to be at Mass at the right time if you were planning on being with us tomorrow. Yes, let’s spring ahead in more than one way!  Peace to All,  Pastor Kathy

News Item –oops!

You probably noticed that the “bulletin” that I sent out this morning was recorded as a “homily.” It was indeed the bulletin for this week! Sorry for any confusion! –Pastor Kathy

Another News Item–SAVE ANOTHER DATE!

Dear Friends,

Please put Sunday, July 7, 2019 on your calendars for our Mary of Magdala–celebration uplifting all women, especially Mary, for their God-given qualities of leadership, strength, goodness and love. Of course this is also a time to celebrate the men who love them, encouraging them to support and stand by their sisters, mothers, grandmothers, wives and friends.

Of course too, this is our picnic on the farm wherein you are all invited to an out-door Mass and pot-luck meal as part of the celebration. Mary of Magdala’s actual feast falls on July 22nd but we will celebrate early this year due to the farm calendar and other schedules for July already filling up and if not this Sunday; we couldn’t do it till the middle of August and then it is getting busy anticipating the start of school.


News Item – Pink Smoke Over the Vatican

Dear Friends,

Join us at the Science Lab Center, on the Winona State University campus, RM 120 on Monday, March 4, 2019 at 7 P.M. for the public showing of Pink Smoke Over the Vatican, the 2013 documentary by Jules Hart on the ordination of women in the Catholic church.

The film is 58 minutes in length and shows us both sides of this very contentious issue in the Catholic church. After the film there will be time for discussion. I will be facilitating this discussion and invite all interested persons to join us!

This film along with seven others are being offered now through the middle of April by the Winona Interfaith Council in its second year of presentations for our community.

The next offering is on Friday evening, March 1, 2019 at 7 P.M. at Cafe Congo/ First Congregational church (161 W. Broadway Street). The film, Believers deals with the rights of our LGBTQ  sisters and brothers.  All are welcome!
