Eucharist Mission at Cathedral

You are joyfully invited to attend a life-changing Eucharistic Mission at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Winona, on Monday and Tuesday, September 23 and 24, at 7 pm! The Mission will take place over two days with a separate Eucharistic Reflection talk each evening, accompanied by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, Benediction, and Confessions. 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the original speaker is unable to attend. Instead, the Cathedral is excited to welcome Msgr. Tom Melvin, Vicar General of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester, as its mission speaker. A highly regarded preacher and spiritual director, Msgr. Melvin will help those in attendance understand the importance of prayer in the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ, and how we can deepen our relationship with the Lord by spending time with Him in the Eucharist. We encourage you to come and be renewed in your faith!

For more information about the Mission, you may contact Leandra, Head Adoration Coordinator at the Cathedral, at or 507-990-3402. All are welcome!

National Life Chain

On the first Sunday of October, churches nationwide gather to take a public stand and pray to end
abortion. Participants hold a sign with a life-affirming message while they stand quietly and pray. Strollers for babes/tots! Chairs for the elderly.

When: Sunday, October 6, 2019 - 2 to 3:15 pm

Where: Corner of Huff and Howard (10th St), Winona

Contact: Kathy Foerster at 507-313-6880 or

What: LIFE CHAIN is a time for prayerful self-analysis, repentance, and serious commitment to helping end abortion in our nation. Accordingly, LIFE CHAIN is not chiefly a demonstration, and its witness is not intended for the viewing public only. Instead, its first goal is to minister to its own participants - to those who call Christ their Lord and hold pro-life messages that declare abortion a grave evil that defames the name and holiness of God. (Leviticus 18:21)

Theology Uncorked

You are invited to join us for Theology Uncorked Thursday, September 19th at 8 pm, at The Oaks Wine Bar, 75 W 3rd St, Winona, MN 55987.

Father Andrew Beerman—pastor of the Catholic parishes in Blue Earth, East Chain, Fairmont, and Winnebago, MN—is our guest this month at Theology Uncorked, with his talk, “UNBOUND: Reclaiming and Living Your Freedom in Christ.” Often times there are reasons that we can become bound by evil spirits in our lives, such as anger, anxiety, hopelessness, addiction, fears, self-judgment, etc. Through prayer and application of the five keys to freedom in Christ--as outlined in the Unbound ministry--people come to experience greater joy, peace, and freedom in their souls.   ***Note that this month’s event is an hour later than usual, and also a week earlier than normal due to the Unbound Conference the following week in Fairmont, MN.

Invite Someone to Alpha

You know the person.   The friend or family member who has distanced themselves from the faith.  The one who you wish knew just how much God loves them.  And that if they only knew this, it would be live changing for them in the most amazing ways.  

Alpha is a starting point.  We share a meal and conversation together in a safe, non-judgemental environment.  Making that important person comfortable to hear and share views of life and faith.

Tuesday nights, 6:30-8pm
Holy Family Hall
Starting Sept. 10th
