      Off-Campus Faith Communities

      Places of Worship in the Winona Community

      The Saint Mary’s University Office of Campus Ministry desires to minister to and with people of all religious backgrounds. We open our events to all faiths, and we recognize how important it is for people to connect with their own faith traditions.

      This list of local spiritual communities is not exhaustive, but it will hopefully get you started. If you do not find a community that reflects your religious background, feel free to contact Campus Ministry at 507-457-8759 for assistance in your search.
