The Office of the Bishop has asked our parish to host a Vicariate Mass for Coadjutor Bishop Louis Tylka. Mass with Bishop Lou will be celebrated at St. Patrick Church of Merna on Saturday, August 1st at 4pm.


Even though this Mass will take place during our regularly scheduled Mass time, all 14 parishes of the Vicariate will be represented. Indoor seating is extremely limited and will NOT be open to the public. However, the Mass will be livestreamed as usual, and we will still offer walk-up Communion.

There will be a receiving line to greet Bishop Lou following Mass and everyone present (including those walking up for Communion) is invited to participate.

If you would like to attend a Mass in person that weekend, please make plans to attend either the 9am or 11am Mass on Sunday, August 2nd.
