Youth and Young Adults

Sunday Evening Mass

Cathedral of the Sacred Heart hosts a 7:00 pm Mass on Sundays during the school year. The Mass is organized and ministered through the St. Thomas Aquinas Newman Center. Although it is geared toward the college students in our area, all are welcome to attend.

Diocesan Youth Events

The Diocese of Winona-Rochester provides opportunities for youth to attend various camps and conferences, including Camp Summit, Steubenville, NCYC, and more!

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Newman Center

There is one road that leads to authentic joy and happiness and that is the road of faith in Jesus Christ. At Winona State University, it is often by entering through the doors of the Newman Center that students' feet are set on a path of deepening personal relationship with Jesus Christ and strong faith-centered friendships.

St. Mary's University Campus Ministry

Using our roots in Lasallian spirituality, Campus Ministry works to help everyone grow in their relationship with Christ and each other. The Office of Campus Ministry is located in Vlazny Hall, Room 126. Stop by to find out more about what we do – or just to take a break from a day of class work.

Soli Deo Gloria

Soli Deo Gloria is a group for young adult Catholics in the Winona area to come together and build fellowship and community. We are a community of single and married Catholic adults in our 20s and 30s. We have an organized regular event on the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm in the Holy Family Hall, at the Cathedral. We also have additional events throughout the year.
