We give thanks to God always for all of you, remembering you in our prayers, unceasingly calling to mind your work of faith and labor of love and Endurance in Hope of our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father. – 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3
A milestone like the Diocesan Sesquicentennial allows us an opportunity to contemplate the missionary spirit of the generations before us whose works of faith, labors of love, and endurance of hope in Jesus Christ reveals the investment of their gifts as the reality of today’s parishes, schools, hospitals, and our beloved Diocese at large. Today, we stand upon their missionary zeal and accomplishments.
Through the intercession of our Blessed Mother and Saints Joseph and Francis, our patrons may God’s blessings be upon you,
