Resources for Home and Parish

Helps during the Covid 19 pandemic

Until we can again attend public Mass, remember that there are many ways to stay connected to our Lord and to practice our Catholic faith.  This page offers access to the Sunday TV Mass, other online Mass opportunities, a wealth of video messages from Bishop Donald DeGrood and others, prayer options and resources offered through various diocesan ministries. 

Please also remember to be good stewards of your time, talent and treasure by reaching out to the lonely and isolated, praying for the sick and suffering, first responders and healthcare workers, and supporting your parish and other ministries.

The Sunday TV Mass

The Sunday TV Mass is produced and broadcast weekly by the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls. Our goal is to bring the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy to those who are homebound or shut-in and unable to join their local community for Mass. The Mass is broadcast all across South Dakota on the local CBS affiliate and many thousands participate each week.

Begins airing live here and on YouTube at 4:00pm (CDT) on Saturday’s.
Also on your local KELOLAND TV station at 10:00am (CDT) on Sunday’s.
