The Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota community will celebrate Founders’ Day on Tuesday, March 19, 2024 on its Winona campus.

Founders’ Day celebrates the founding of our university by the Most Reverend Patrick Heffron, Bishop of the Diocese of Winona, over 100 years ago and the founding of the De La Salle Christian Brothers by Saint John Baptist de La Salle over 300 years ago.

All faculty, staff, and students are invited to join in the festivities.

Mass – 10:45 a.m., St. Thomas More Chapel

Convocation – 1: 15 p.m., Page Theatre

Reception – 2:45 p.m., Page Lobby

(There will be a truncated class schedule on the Winona campus for the day.)

The Founders’ Day Convocation will honor the Bishop Patrick Heffron Award winner, our Distinguished Lasallian Educator, and the nominees for the 2024 Outstanding Male and Female Students as well as the 2024 Outstanding Male Student and the 2024 Outstanding Female Student.

For those of you unable to join us in person on the Winona campus, you are cordially invited to watch the livestream of the Convocation.

We hope that you will join us for this special day!
