Bulletin – 2nd Sunday of Lent

Dear Friends,

  • Last Sunday for grocery donations for the Winona Food Shelf–please be generous! 
  • TAKE NOTE:  On this Saturday, February 24, 2018, from 10 am–12 noon at the First Congregational church, 161 West Broadway (6th Street) Winona, there will be a Sanctuary Church Information Meeting.  All Are One is a sponsor for this activity along with the Quakers, Unitarians, Lutheran Campus Center and the Winona Interfaith Council.  No advance registration is required, but RSVP for planning purposes is requested.  Email: winonainterfaith@gmail.com or Phone: 507-450-6405.  This should be a very informative meeting! 

We continue our journey toward Easter as we ask ourselves what we believe about our God who wants to be in relationship with us.  The answer we give to this question determines everything else in our lives!

Come; pray and celebrate with us this week!

Peace and love,

First Weekend of Lent

Dear Friends,

Mass on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 4:30 P.M. –Pastor Dick Dahl will preside.

NOTE: February 14, 2018 is Ash Wednesday.  All Are One Catholic church will not be meeting for liturgy, although, if you haven’t received ashes, this ritual will be offered at the Saturday liturgy. 


Once again, we look to the psalmist for the overriding theme as we begin the holy season of Lent as a community: “All the paths of our God are steadfast love…”  Interesting and significant I think that Lent began on our national day of love, this past Wednesday.  We hear from Mark’s gospel today that “the reign of God is at hand”–let us use this time to renew our relationship with our loving God through our brother, Jesus.

Peace and love and blessings upon this Lent for us all,

Pastor Kathy


Readings: 

  • Genesis 9: 8-15
  • 1 Peter 3: 18-22
  • Mark 1: 12-15

 

Bulletin – 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,

Mass this Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 10 A.M. –Pastor Dick Dahl will preside. 

Remember your non-perishable gifts for the food shelf!


The psalmist cries out to God for deliverance–this is our cry as well to a God who will deliver us from whatever trouble we find ourselves in. Paul tells us that we must imitate Christ who showed us the way to live.  We see from Jesus in the Gospel today that the good we do for others originated with our loving God who wants to continue these good works in us, if like Jesus, “we are willing.”

Come; celebrate with the All Are One community this week.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy


Readings: 

  • Leviticus 13: 1-2, 44-46
  • 1 Corinthians 10: 31–11:1

Bulletin – 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,

Mass on Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 10 A.M. –Pastor Dick Dahl will be presiding.

Our total for collected non-perishable food items for January, 2018 was 30# –remember that we collect these food items each Sunday so you can bring them whenever you join us for liturgy–these items are then taken to the food shelf once a month. Thank you Julie Quist for getting our collection there this past week! 


This week’s theme seems to come from the words of the psalmist, “God heals the broken-hearted.” We are “educated” in the life of the prophet and see, in the person of Job that faith asks much of us at times–in the sentiment of Paul, once started down the road; there is no help for those convicted by the message of Jesus.  In Jesus’ words, “This is what I have come to do!

Come; be with the All Are One community this Sunday to gain the strength each of us needs to “preach the Word–with words or without.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

  • Job 7: 1-4, 6-7

Bulletin – 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Friends,

Mass on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 10:00 A.M. 

Save the Date: February 24, 2018, 10:00 A.M.–12 Noon –Sanctuary Church Information Meeting–First Congregational church–161 W. Broadway–Winona–RSVP for planning purposes–winonainterfaith@gmail.com  (507-450-6405)


Today’s liturgy calls us to “harden not your hearts.”  Jesus’ actions today with regard to the demon-possessed man were all about compassion for his suffering.  We, friends, are called to the same–our response must always be compassion for and action for those in need.

Come; discern and pray with us this week!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy
