Prayer for Pastoral Planning
Almighty God, we the people of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester prayerfully look to the future. During this time of pastoral planning, we implore the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us the gifts of wisdom, courage and hope.
May we exercise the virtue of prudence by opening our hearts and minds to be good stewards of the legacy of faith inherited from those who built the Church on the prairie, the hills, and in the valleys.
May we exercise the virtue of justice by opening our hearts and minds to assure that the voices of people from all generations, all vocations and all areas of the Diocese are welcomed and respected.
May we exercise the virtue of fortitude by opening our hearts and minds to understand and acknowledge the spiritual and practical realities of our day and prepare for the days to come; and
May we exercise the virtue of temperance by opening our hearts and minds to accept the changes in diocesan, parish and personal life that the Holy Spirit, through this planning process, is guiding us to make.
Under the protection of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Mother, may we discern and implement what is best for the diocesan Church and all the faithful of southern Minnesota.
We pray this through Christ, our Lord.

It is time to gather and share war stories!
The topic this year is exciting, The Story of Father Kapaun. It is an excellent opportunity to grow in faith. See how one man made a difference in the world. Catholic speaker Joe Farris will help us learn about the life of Servant of God Emil Kapaun and the virtues that made a difference to the men he served. Father Kapaun was a Catholic priest and Army Chaplain who served in the farming communities of Kansas, and on the battlefields and in the prison camps of Korea until his eventual death. Awarded the Medal of Honor in 2013, he is a model of manhood for all of us who strive to live a life of virtue.
Plan on joining your brothers in faith each Tuesday evening from 7:00pm to 8:00pm (or longer depending on our discussion) starting February 5. We will meet in St. Ann’s Hall. Beverages and snacks will be provided. No homework and no books to read, just come and share. Contact Deacon John for more information 507-261-8307.
