Speaker Approval Policy and Form

As the chief shepherd of souls in the Diocese of New Ulm, it is the responsibility of the diocesan Bishop “firmly to defend the integrity and unity of the faith to be believed” (Code of Canon Law, c. 386 § 2). Therefore, speakers who are being considered to give a public presentation on faith and/or morals in a diocesan parish or school or other Catholic institution must be approved by the diocesan Bishop before a formal invitation is extended.
