Stations of the Cross from our partnership with Damascus, Syria
Syria has experienced suffering and pain from eight years of brutal war. Christians have been especially persecuted. The following Stations of the
Cross have been shared with us by Archbishop Samir Nassar through our partnership with the Archeparchy of Damascus. They reflect the anguish of
the Christian community and their desire for hope and peace. To download Stations of the Cross, click here>>

Catholic Home Missions Appeal: April 28, 2019
Did you know that over 40% of all dioceses in the U.S. are considered mission dioceses? They are unable to provide basic pastoral services like the sacraments, Mass, religious education and ministry training for lay people and formation for priests, deacons, religious sisters and brothers. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has designated April 28 for this important Home Missions Collection in parishes. Even our own Minnesota Dioceses of Crookston and New Ulm receive help from the Home Missions Appeal. Please help keep the faith vibrant and growing in struggling faith communities in the United States.
The Center for Mission accepts mass stipend donations and coordinates distribution to mission dioceses for the celebration of requested intentions. For Mass Stipend Form, Click Here>>
