WATCH: Ordination, installation of Bishop-elect DeGrood

| February 13, 2020 | 0 Comments

Modern technology will ensure that everyone can participate in the ordination and installation Mass of Bishop-elect Donald DeGrood as bishop of the Diocese of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Due to limited seating at the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Sioux Falls, only invited family, friends, clergy and delegations from Sioux Falls and the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis will be able to attend the Feb. 13 Mass. But people hoping to view the 2 p.m. liturgy can still have a front row seat — live on the internet — through the diocese’s YouTube channel.

Bishop-elect DeGrood, a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis who most recently was pastor of St. John the Baptist in Savage, also plans to hold a public social after the Mass at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. 

Just three days after his installation, people across the archdiocese will have an opportunity to celebrate with Bishop DeGrood. He plans to preside and preach at a 2 p.m. Feb. 16 Mass of Thanksgiving at the Cathedral of St. Paul in St. Paul.

Archbishop Bernard Hebda will be the chief celebrant and homilist for the ordination and installation Mass. Events planned in Sioux Falls around the Mass include a 5 p.m. Feb. 12 holy hour and vespers at the cathedral. Bishop-elect DeGrood also will publicly make his Oath of Fidelity.
