Seeds of Wisdom
In 2016, our Pastor, Father John Lasuba, realized a longtime dream when Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan opened a school in his hometown of Pukuka, South Sudan. When turmoil erupted, it forced the closure of the school, and many families took refuge in nearby Uganda. Thanks to generous benefactors, Seeds of Wisdom’s work educating the children goes on, with more than 200 students enrolled in Catholic boarding schools or learning at sites in the refugee camps that are staffed by our teachers. SOW is holding SUMMER FUNdraiser 2020, beginning this month and concluding with a virtual live event in August. A self-guided Walk/Run/Ride, going on now, will give participants the chance to get some great exercise and at the same time support this mission that means so much to Father John. There also will be an online silent auction August 13-23 with a variety of items and a live online program with special guests on August 23. To register or to see more information, click here.

MISSION COOPERATIVE APPEAL
ST. MARY’S MISSION SCHOOL
Each year, every parish in the Diocese of Winona-Rochester is asked to host a speaker from a mission diocese, organization, or a religious order. This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not able to host a speaker. However we still have the opportunity to support the missionaries. The Mission Cooperative Appeal provides opportunities for prayer and financial support of the poorest of poor through-out the world. Those wishing to support St. Mary’s Mission may make their check payable to your parish with a memo for the St. Mary’s Mission Cooperative Special Collection.
