"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation
will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."

(Romans 8:38-39)

LET US REMEMBER ... for whom shall we pray?

During the month of November, Cotter Schools invites all to remember those who have died. Please share the names of deceased loved ones below. We will include them in our school Book of Prayer and will remember them in our all-school prayer gatherings and liturgies.

"Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen."

Saint Joseph, patron of Cotter Schools. . . pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts. . . forever.     


Cotter Schools is a private, independent, coeducational school in Winona, Minnesota that has been guided by Catholic beliefs and values since 1911.

As an international learning community, serving grades 7-12, we hold our students to the highest academic standards and challenge each of them to develop their full potential academically, physically, spiritually and socially.

We believe in the intrinsic goodness of all persons, and strive to model the values of faith, service, and community as we encourage and support our students to become more than they can imagine.
