Legacy of Faith Celebration:  Photo Booth!

Greetings,

This past year the Diocese of Sioux Falls has been honoring its 125th Anniversary with Masses of celebration all throughout the diocese to remember key points in our history and heritage.  This weekend the anniversary year culminated in the Legacy of Faith celebration held in Sioux Falls.  Our sisters joined the the faithful of the diocese in convention center, and we brought a guest!

The Legacy of Faith celebration for our diocese had a surprise guest at the Benedictine Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery’s booth! Bishop Martin Marty, first bishop of the Dakotas, came to pose for pictures with the faithful flock living out our Catholic legacy on the plains!
