coatofarmscolor72resWe, the people of God of the Diocese of Saint Cloud, in union with the Universal Church, believe in and proclaim the presence of Jesus Christ in our world.


Our mission is to be His heart of mercy,
voice of hope, and hands of justice.




In living out our mission we will:

        • Dedicate our lives to building up the kingdom of God, committing ourselves to lifelong formation in our faith through study, prayer, and active participation in the Liturgy.
        • Devote ourselves to the development of strong family life, drawing on the values of the generations that have gone before us.
        • Recognize the dignity of each person, seeking justice for all at every stage of life.
        • Cherish our rural tradition, respecting the beauty and sacredness of the earth.
        • Share the Good News, witnessing the love of Christ through our words and actions.
        • Embrace the spirit of Vatican II, accepting the challenge to renew our own lives and the life of the Church.
        • Celebrate the Eucharist as the source and summit of our faith, praying as Christ did, that all may be one.
