See City Deanery Update

Welcome to the See City Deanery Update!

This newsletter is for the parishes and parishioners of the See City Deanery of the Diocese of Jefferson City.

The See City Deanery is comprised of parishes in and around Jefferson City, including all of the parishes in Cole County as well as sections of Callaway, Osage and Miller counties, click here to see a map.

You will receive these updates periodically to keep our Deanery informed about events happening at our parishes. The goal is to help foster collaboration and cooperation between parishes — and to share resources to help all parishes thrive as they reflect the light of Christ in our deanery.

Please share the items included in these updates with your parish — by including them in your bulletins, sharing on social media or just passing to your fellow parishioners.

Do you have an item to share in a future See City Deanery Update?
