From the Vicar General:
Dear Co-workers in the
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

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.
