The ordination and installation of Bishop-elect Donald E. DeGrood will be February 13, 2 p.m. at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph.
A public reception will be held following the ordination at the Sioux Falls Convention Center from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
Due to space limitations, the Mass will be a ticketed event. With the assistance of pastors from all 120 parishes and Newman Centers in the diocese, tickets will be provided to two representatives from each parish so that the Diocesan Church will be fully represented during the liturgy.
