  • After nine years of planning and fundraising and a little over a year of construction, the Catholic Diocese of New Ulm’s new Pastoral Center has reached completion.
     
    The bishop of New Ulm, the Most Reverend John M. LeVoir, and his staff will host an open house on Friday, Aug. 1 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the new Pastoral Center, located off the north corner of 5th Street North and Highland Avenue in New Ulm. The event will include group tours and refreshments. All are welcome to attend.
     
    The new Pastoral Center serves as headquarters for Bishop LeVoir and his staff, who serve about 60,000 Catholics in West-Central Minnesota. At 28,320 square feet, the two-story structure (which includes a finished basement) houses 30 offices, five conference rooms, three workrooms and a chapel.
     
    Founded in 1957, the Diocese of New Ulm consists of 76 parishes in 15 counties. Bishop LeVoir was installed as the fourth bishop of the diocese on Sept. 15, 2008.
