End of an era
An excavator from Mathiowetz Construction, Sleepy Eye, demolishes part of the Diocese of New Ulm's old Pastoral Center located at 1400 6th Street North in New Ulm. Demolition of the old Pastoral Center, built in 1960, began Dec. 3. By Dec. 5 the 24,000 square foot, two-story building had been demolished. The property, which overlooks the Way of the Cross Shrine, will be retained by the diocese for a spiritual purpose yet to be determined.
