hands_over_globeStay tied in to our mission connections through MISSION CONNECTIONS

MISSION CONNECTIONS is our St. Cloud Mission Office newsletter. It had its first publication in August of 2000 and is now a regular quarterly circulation, coming out in the Winter, Spring and Summer of each year, with the Fall edition found in the St. Cloud Visitor as a special World Mission Sunday insert. The editor of the newsletter is Kateri Mancini, Coordinator of Mission Education of the St. Cloud Catholic Mission Office.

This newsletter serves as a resource on mission for any one that desires to learn more about our diocesan mission connections or is interested in opportunities for mission trips and other ways to become involved. The intent of the newsletter is to keep you in touch with missioners from our diocese who are located all over the world as well as missioners from other countries who are located in Central Minnesota. We share their stories from across the globe and also within the United States where they walk in mission. The newsletter is also a way to keep you informed about what local people in our diocese are doing within their parishes, schools and communities to further the mission of Jesus and promote Christian values and just relationships.

The beautiful stories and reflections from our missioners and Diocesan parishioners involved in mission seldom grow old! For this reason, many of the articles from past publications of the MISSION CONNECTIONS Newsletter can be viewed online still, in PDF form.

Please note that we occassionally have difficulties with the clarity of how photographs appear in the PDF version of our Newsletters.  If pictures appear grainy to you on these online versions, please contact us and we would be happy to send you a hard printed copy of the newsletter so that you may see our missioners and those they work with clearly!  Contact Lora at lkmission at cloudnet dot com to receive a copy in the mail.
