From the Diocese

The Diocese of Saint Cloud announces the ordination of Deacon Daniel Ruprecht and Deacon Kevin Soenneker by Bishop Patrick Neary, C.S.C. The ordination Mass is open to everyone.

 

Starting in November 2023 Bishop Neary will have monthly visits for the Area Catholic Communities (ACCs), in groups of 3-4 at St. Mary’s Cathedral. During this visit each ACC will give a short presentation.

View the summaries and presentation information for the pastoral visits.

In light of the National Eucharistic Revival, St. Cloud Bishop Patrick Neary, C.S.C., was moved by the Holy Spirit to write his very first pastoral letter, “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”

Mental Health Ministry

The role of a mental health ministry team is to provide spiritual companionship, to listen and enter into relationships; provide spiritual and practical support and resources; and provide educational opportunities for mental health awareness to the parish and community.

Mental health ministry is not about solving someone’s problems, but rather listening and accompanying individuals on their journey.

Check out the resources for help.

“Whoever suffers mental illness always bears God’s image and likeness, and has an inalienable right to be considered a person and treated as such.”

– St. Pope John Paul II
