World Premiere Musical Performance: "Francis & Clare"

Fri, Aug 04 7:00 p - 9:00 p

Page Theater - St. Mary's University, Winona

"Francis & Clare," a new musical about the lives and teachings of two extraordinary people who lived 800 years ago, will premiere August 4-6, 2017 (7 p.m. on 8/4 and 8/5. 2 p.m. on 8/6.) The story is about St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, Italy, and their struggles and triumphs to envision a new world; a world where people treat each other with greater mutual respect and live in peace and harmony--ideals that still inspire us today. First begun 20 years ago as a fundraising project of music vignettes to help Assisi after a devastating earthquake, the project has now been expanded into a full-length musical, featuring a cast of 20 with more than 20 original songs. The original work is the collaboration of three Sisters of Saint Francis: Eileen Haugh, Ingrid Peterson, and Ramona Miller; and the local theater and music talents of Nancy Edstrom Bachler and Bruce Ramsdell. For more information, call Sisters of Saint Francis Communications Director Kathy Gatliff at 507-529-3523.

Renewal of the Consecration of the Diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Fri, Sep 08 5:15 p - 5:15 p

Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, Winona

On Friday, September 8, 2017 – The feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Bishop John M. Quinn will renew the consecration of the Diocese of Winona to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, during a special 5:15 pm Mass. The IHM Seminarians and faculty will be in attendance, along with the parishioners of the Cathedral. All are welcome to this annual event; priests are welcome to concelebrate and deacons are welcome to vest. It is our Diocesan tradition that we make this renewal every year on the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary as an act of love and devotion to Our Lady. In 2008 Bishop Bernard Harrington consecrated the Diocese of Winona to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In the very moment of conception of Jesus in the womb of Mary, Jesus entrusted His whole being to her. Similarly, by this act of consecration, we allow Mary to actualize her mediation, enriching our diocese with a higher degree of grace and greater likeness to Christ. We surrender the diocese completely to God and His service, giving the same yes that Mary gave when she bore Jesus in her womb. The act of consecration dedicates the diocese and all of the good works that come from it to Our Lady and her desires, in order to more fully complete the will of her Son.

On the threshold of his public life, Jesus performs his first sign - at his mother's request - during a wedding feast. (John 2, 1-11) The Church attaches great importance to Jesus' presence at the wedding at Cana. She sees in it the confirmation of the goodness of marriage and the proclamation that thenceforth marriage will be an efficacious sign of Christ's presence. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1613) Pre-Cana is an opportunity for engaged couples to prepare for the Sacrament of Matrimony. They will learn about the beauty of Marriage as a sacrament and about how they can be an efficacious sign of Christ's presence to each other, to their future children and to those around them.
