St. Luke Hall: Coming Soon
The construction of St. Luke Hall has been fully funded by generous benefactors, but your help is needed to finish this very important project. Furnishings and technology equipment for the classrooms are still needed. Each classroom will be equipped with new interactive technology for learning and computers for each student. There are many opportunities to sponsor classrooms and community spaces in St. Luke Hall. Each of us has a different capacity to give. To discuss sponsoring a room in St. Luke Hall, please contact Mike Swenson, Vice President of Advancement, at (507) 453-5802. Each of us has a different capacity to give. Please make a meaningful contribution to help make St. Luke Hall the excellent learning environment we desire for our young Ramblers.
In naming the elementary building, Cotter Schools’ sought to align the name of the building with a saint whose values and themes were consistent with the mission and identity of our school, and whose name was not already identified with a building in the Winona area. St. Luke seemed a wonderful fit.
St. Luke the Evangelist
St. Luke is believed to be the author of the Gospel that bears his name as well as the Acts of the Apostles. He was a close friend and follower of St. Paul. Their mission together was to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world.
Luke was born in Antioch, Syria, of a prosperous Greek family. He was a Gentile who came to know Jesus as the Lord and Savior of all. In his writings, Luke shows
great sensitivity to the evangelization of all persons – God’s Kingdom is open to all. Themes throughout Luke’s writing include the power of prayer, forgiveness, love for the poor, and hope in God’s mercy for all.
St. Luke can be understood as a promoter of both the arts and the sciences. He was a physician, a fine painter, and a gifted writer. He had high regard for the values of faith, respect, and community.
May Cotter Schools continue to be inspired by St. Luke and remain rooted in the preaching and teaching of Jesus.
St. Luke, pray for us.
