The mission of the Polish Cultural Institute and Museum is to collect, exhibit, interpret and disseminate the heritage of the Kashubian Polish Culture.

Oplatki Sunday: December 6, 2015

Oplatek is a thin unleavened wafer similar to Communion bread which Polish families traditionally share at the Christmas Eve dinner (or Wigilia). Sharing oplatki has helped to promote Polish family harmony and security for years. The Museum will be open on Sunday, December 6 from 12:00 to 3:00 for people to pick up oplatki and learn more about the oplatki ceremony. Please follow this link for additional details.

The Battle of Saint Stan’s: December 20, 2015

Everyone knows that the beautiful Basilica of Saint Stanislaus Kostka was built through the hard work and financial sacrifice of Winona’s Polish community. But building St. Stan’s also involved a roughed-up priest, a besieged convent, numerous fights in the streets, and an attempted raid on the County jail stopped by firemen with axes. Dr. Joseph Hughes of Springfield, MO will discuss this topic on Sunday, December 20 at the Morrison Annex from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. He will also be talking about next summer’s upcoming guided tour of Kashubia.
