PHOTOS: Closing Mass for St. Martha in Wayland -- Part 1

Dec. 9, 2018, with Bishop W. Shawn McKnight


Bishop W. Shawn McKnight joins Father Robert Fields, administrator, and other concelebrating priests at the altar for the final Mass at the Mission of St. Martha in Wayland. The parish pastoral council, after consultation from fellow parishioners, asked to have the mission combined with St. Michael parish in Kahoka after the announcement was made that weekend Masses would no longer be offered at St. Martha. A large congregation took part in the afternoon Liturgy, followed by a reception in the parish hall. (80 photos)
