Happy 125th Anniversary, Diocese of Duluth!

Saturday, September 12, was a beautiful, cool, sunny day: perfect for celebrating the Duluth Diocese’ 125th anniversary.  

Some participants partook of a light snack in Holy Rosary School’s gymnasium before beginning their walk.

About 25 Benedictine Sisters walked in the Eucharistic Procession from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary to the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center (DECC), or gathered at the DECC for Adoration and Holy Eucharist.
