OUR PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
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.
UPDATE: OUR PARISHES PUBLIC MASSES:
Please spread the word, especially the weekend Mass time. All Masses will be live streamed on Facebook under "Gregg Frankman." , with the exception of those at St. Kateri for now. For St. Peter's go to NE SD Catholic churches.
I will no longer live stream on Facebook under Gregg Frankman.
Our Weekend Mass schedule for June, July & August will be SATURDAYS AT 5:30 PM
- *** The choice to attend public Mass is yours to make. As Bishop DeGrood has stated, there is no shame in waiting out the pandemic before participating at public Masses.***
* An offering basket will be placed on the Offertory table to put your offering when entering or when leaving Mass.
