Make sure your family calendar has August 14-16 marked to attend the Legacy of Faith diocesan celebration at the Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center. Come celebrate with thousands of your fellow Catholics from across eastern South Dakota as we give thanks for the past, celebrate today and look forward to the future.

Catholics have lived in what was to become the Diocese of Sioux Falls dating back to the early French explorers. Next, missionaries, including eventual bishop, Martin Marty, came to serve the Native American and early settler population.

The formal Diocese of Sioux Falls was established on November 12, 1889 by Pope Leo XIII. At that time it included all of South Dakota. The current territory of the diocese, which includes all of South Dakota east of the Missouri River, was established when the Diocese of Lead (now Rapid City) was created in 1904.

Through spiritual and sacramental outreach in parishes and schools across eastern South Dakota, and a commitment to service, the Diocese of Sioux Falls has brought the Gospel to all.

Grateful for the past, celebrating today and sharing our faith into the future, we celebrate a Legacy of Faith – 125 years.
