From the Vicar General:

Dear Co-workers in the Vineyard,

As everything gets going let me thank you in advance for your ministry to the Christian faithful in the Diocese of Crookston. I pray that it is a grace-filled and fruitful year for all of us.

Please make sure you and the people you work with (paid or volunteer) have done the Safe Environment Training. Also, it is a good time to review the Code of Conduct For Church Leaders in the DOC. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Jim Clauson or me.

We are here to serve you so please contact us.
