God’s sacrificial love

God's Sacrificial Love

The theme of the sacrificial love of Christ on the cross runs through Bishop DeGrood's pectoral cross, crozier, ring, and coat of arms. It reminds him of God's sacrificial love and his call to live sacrificially as a bishop for the people he will serve.

Watch to Bishop emeritus Paul J. Swain's message for this years Catholic Family Sharing Appeal. This year we focus on Discipleship and Evangelization, and how those ministries effect so many people throughout the diocese.
