Welcome to our newly designed Web site!
"The Internet, in particular, offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity. This is something truly good, a gift from God." (Pope Francis, 2014 Message for World Communications day)
I agree wholeheartedly with Pope Francis. The Internet is used to access myriads of information by millions of people. Therefore, in order to carry on the new evangelization, it is important for the Catholic Church to be a presence on the Web and to have information about the Catholic faith readily accessible through the use of the Internet.
The Diocese of New Ulm has its part to play in providing information about the Catholic Church and about the diocese, in an accessible and attractive way, through its Web site. The information about the Catholic faith as lived in our diocese, along with news about the happenings of the diocese and the Church around the world, ensures that our Catholic people know about the Church and the diocese. By using this knowledge, they are better able to deepen their own faith and to evangelize their brothers and sisters as called for by Pope Francis.
The Most Reverend John M. LeVoirBishop of New Ulm
