Diocese Renews Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary

This weekend at all the Masses in the Diocese we will be renewing a consecration made to the Blessed Mother which Bishop Quinn beseeches "will solemnly bind and consecrate the land and all the people living in the Diocese of Winona to Your Immaculate Heart; cover us with Your Loving Mantle of Mercy and Compassion."  This will be an opportunity for each of us to consecrate both our personal lives to Mary and our mission as a member of the Diocese to be under her protection and loving care.  This beautiful tradition was one in which Bishop Harrington started at the end of his leadership of our diocese in 2008 and which Bishop Quinn happily continues with a yearly renewal of this Consecration.  Click here for a brochure on the Consecration.
