Bishop Don DeGrood Ordination

On December 12 Pope Francis name Father Dan DeGrood (pastor of Saint John the Baptist and Savage), to be the next Bishop of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It’s a great honor to have a priest chosen from our archdiocese to serve as a bishop. Father DeGrood was ordained in 1997 and has served in many roles since then including as pastor and as the Vicar for Priests of the Archdiocese. Always positive, inspiring and true to the Catholic faith, he will be a most excellent bishop!

The ordination as bishop will take place at the Cathedral in Sioux Falls on February 13. Archbishop Hebda will be the celebrant and preacher. However, due to the expected large crowds in the relatively small size of the cathedral, it is essentially an invitation only mass. There simply isn’t enough room! However, it will be live streamed on the Sioux Falls diocesan website so that all can view it from anywhere.

Also on Sunday, February 16 Bishop DeGrood will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving at our Cathedral in St. Paul at 2 PM. I will plan to be there and perhaps you would like to come as well. For more information about the ordination details, please visit the Sioux Falls diocesan website, or theCatholicSpirit.com. Congratulations and God bless you Bishop DeGrood! We are also proud of you and are praying for you!
