In the light of our diocesan mission, striving to see as God sees, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Winona commits to mirror God to the world as Liberator of the oppressed and Defender of the poor.
“God made them in God’s likeness.” Hence, to grow in the divine image is the fulfillment of our human purpose and longing.
Together, then, we labor to serve all people and make conditions
of our Minnesota heartland more fully Human: by calling people to minister to each other, by sharing our resources with each individual and the total community, by reaching out to the disabled, the marginalized, the alienated, the stranger, and by laboring for the justice which the gospel of Christ demands.
Through this, we shall die and rise with Him. For, in the end, the greatest gift is Love.
