In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention month, the Diocese of Sioux Falls will hold two events at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph.

A rosary for healing and protection will be livestreamed on April 13 at 10 a.m. and led by Deacon John Devlin. This rosary is being offered for all those who need healing and protection. Pray with us live from your location or at your convenience on YouTube at SFDiocese.

On April 24 at 4 p.m., Bishop Donald DeGrood will celebrate Mass to pray for healing for all those impacted by abuse. If you cannot attend this Mass, it is televised on Keloland Sunday at 10 a.m. and livestreamed on YouTube at SFDiocese. Please join the bishop for this time of healing and prayer.

Every year in South Dakota, the Center for Prevention of Child Maltreatment estimates 4,000 children in our state experience sexual abuse. These events can be powerful opportunities for us to pray for those affected.
