Some pictures from the past…part I:
On Friday, July 11, I was able to tour the new St. Katherine Drexel, two days before His Excellency, Bishop Paul J. Swain dedicated it. Congratulations to Father Joe Vogel and the good people of St. Katherine’s for building a church to the glory of God.
The Crucifix, Stations of the Cross, Tabernacle, Sanctuary Lamp and candlesticks are antigues from closed churches (outside of the Diocese of Sioux Falls).
The red oak pews are magnificent, and have kneelers (unlike the church from which St. Katherine’s was formed). When all of the pews are installed, the church will seat 1,000 persons.
Thanks be to God.
