After a year-and-a-half of planning, a two-year certification program for Hispanic lay leaders was launched in Melrose Sept. 8, welcoming 55 participants from the Diocese of St. Cloud as well as 13 participants from neighboring dioceses.
All around the St. Cloud Diocese, host families, sister parishes, school kids and parishioners are excited for the arrival of 15 delegates from the Diocese of Homa Bay, Kenya — a sister diocese to St. Cloud — who arrived in Minnesota Sept. 20 and will stay through Oct. 3.
