Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.", sharing God's love, by living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Beginning this weekend, the proposed design for pastorates, a new structure in which our diocesan Church is to be organized beginning next July and an outcome of the Set Ablaze planning process, is available for review at

Bishop DeGrood, having now asked all of us to grow in our understanding of our current reality as a church here in eastern South Dakota, is now inviting you to review maps depicting a new model for parish structures. These structures are meant to foster renewal in the faith lives of all Catholics and to disrupt many of the unhealthy trends we see in our culture today.

You will be receiving an invitation via email from Bishop DeGrood to again examine the dedicated website and to offer your feedback or suggestions for how to improve the structure as it is currently modeled. All Catholics are invited to provide these through a survey that is on the website. It’s important to remember that these maps are not the final versions.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to review and comment. Comments will be received through November 21, 2022.

Diocese of Sioux Falls Pastoral Plan Set Ablaze Planning Process


*November through December Mass Schedule will be as follows:

  • Sundays at 9AM at St. John's in Rosholt

  • Holy Week and Easter services will rotate each year.

  • Christmas Masses will rotate each year.

  • Holy Day Mass will be at St. John's and St. Peter's only.

*CRE Classes: Grades 1-3 in afternoon, and 5-12 in the evenings. Sign-up sheet for suppers is in the entrance of the church.

*In addition to our Prayer Chain at St. John's, we have started a group text. People on the list will simply get a text message with the prayer request and there will be no need to pass it on. If you would like your name on this list, contact Diana or Bonnie.

*Do you love podcasts and YouTube programs? Your diocese offers four programs to help you learn more about your Catholic faith and about other Catholics trying to live it just like you. Check out any of these programs by visiting or our YouTube channel SFDiocese.
