Message From the Bishop

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God! The Eucharist (Christ’s thanksgiving) is the source and summit of the Christian life, and it is the unifying theme for our diocese. May you find inspiration within this site to become more engaged in the life of the Catholic Church here in the Diocese of Jefferson City! Welcome!


 "As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace." (1 Peter 4:10)

All Christians are called to service by virtue of their baptism. The call to priesthood and religious life is heard at various ages and circumstances of life; God’s call is often incarnated through the words, example, and support of others.

Help us to awaken the call within those called to ordination or vowed religious life.
