Son though He was, He learned obedience from what He suffered; and when He was made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation.
Almighty God, Who governs all things, both in heaven and on earth, mercifully hear our prayers and bestow Your peace on our times.
The word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.
The Diocese of New Ulm is led by the Most Reverend John M. LeVoir. He was ordained and installed as the fourth bishop of the diocese on September 15, 2008.

Participants brought the baby Jesus figure from their home Nativity set to be blessed individually by the bishop. The bishop also gave a special blessing for expectant mothers. A swaddling clothes collection (blankets, sleepers, layette items) for babies as well as cash donations weretaken up, with the proceeds going to We Care in Morgan. All the faithful were welcome to attend.
Closing of the Year of Mercy
On Sunday, Nov. 20 (Solemnity of Christ the King) at the Cathedral in New Ulm, Bishop John LeVoir presided at the closing of the Holy Door to conclude the Year of Mercy. The faithful gathered for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, an opportunity for Confessions, singing of the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Benediction and Reposition, and Holy Mass.
As Holy Doors closed in churches and basilicas around the world, including in Rome, it is estimated that over 20 million people participated in the Church’s Jubilee Year of Mercy at the Vatican – and a billion people may have participated in churches worldwide.
