Welcome to the Winona Catholic WorkerWe are a Christian faith community living in the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement and committed to community, voluntary poverty, hospitality, stewardship, nonviolence, and faith.
We welcome our sisters and brothers in need, serving them as "ambassadors of God." We place our trust in God's providence, relying entirely on the generosity of many individuals, groups, and churches to support our work. We are not tax-exempt, nor do we receive any government funding, because we believe that we are called to do the Works of Mercy at a personal sacrifice.
