Diocese of New Ulm - June 2007

Deadline extended! Order now your 50th Anniversary History Book

In preparation for the year long celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Diocese of New Ulm which officially begins in November, many plans are taking shape. One of the major projects the diocese is working on is the publication of a photographic history book, A Loving People in a Holy Place. This work will cover the story of the Diocese of New Ulm from its earliest roots to the present day.

It will also include all parishes, each of which will have a special section with its history, as well as several pictures.

This beautiful book, published by a French company, Editions du Signe, will have a hard cover, about 160 pages, and be printed in color on very high quality paper. It will include hundreds of photos covering the history of the diocese.

Ordering is easy!

Each book is $26.50. Fill out the order form below and return to your parish with payment. Payment (checks payable to your local parish) must accompany your order. If you are not a member of a parish in the diocese, order forms should be sent with payment (checks payable to the Diocese of New Ulm) to the diocesan Office of Communications, 1400 6th Street North, New Ulm, MN 56073. Deadline for orders has been extended to July 1, 2007.

Books will arrive sometime this fall at your local parish. Watch your parish bulletin for pick up notification. Note: if pick up is not possible and mailing is necessary, please include $4.00 per book; $4.50 for two books; and $5.50 for three books. For more than three copies, call for postage quote. Call: (507) 359-2966.

I really believe this 50th Anniversary Book will be of interest to all our Catholic people. It can also be a wonderful reference both in the home and in the parish.

-Archbishop John C. Nienstedt
