June 2022 - Winona-Rochester Ministry Days

The Winona-Rochester Diocese Ministry Days 2022, “‘My Flesh for the Life of the World’: Encountering Jesus Anew,” will be held on Tuesday - Wednesday, June 14-15, 2022, at Saint Mary’s University in Winona.

The focus for our gathering will be the National Eucharistic Revival initiated by the U.S. Catholic Bishops – “a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.”

If you would like to talk to someone about how to plan for Eucharistic Discipleship, host a parish mission, or offer a formation event for evangelizing at your parish, please don't hesitate to contact us
