About Last Collar Standing

Last Collar Standing is a fundraising opportunity for our in house Lumen Christi Missionary program.  This is our 4th annual year of putting on this event and we have had such a huge response from people that we would love to continue to offer it.  Thanks to your generous support of this event we are able to have four Lumen Christi Missionaries serving our diocese this year! Two of them are serving as coordinators of the program and two are serving our youth and young adults in Aberdeen and Sioux Falls. To learn more about Lumen Christi click here
The event consists of 12 priests gathering by Zoom during a livestreamed competition to answer trivia questions, complete in physical challenges and test their willpower to see who will be the Last Collar Standing.
This fun and hilarious competition is a great chance to see our priests in a new light, having fun and revealing a new side many of us have never seen. Consider hosing a watch party either in your home or through your parish. You won’t want to miss this family friendly event!
