Immaculate Conception in Rapid City Becomes a Parish

It is with great gladness that the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter congratulates Fr. Christopher Hathaway, FSSP, and the members of Immaculate Conception in Rapid City, South Dakota, whose apostolate community was recently elevated to a full diocesan parish.

The former cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is home to one of the Fraternity’s older North American apostolates. The official promotion to diocesan parish occurred on August 1, 2014, by the gracious permission of the Most Rev. Robert D. Gruss, Bishop of Rapid City. The North American District extends its most gracious thanks to Bishop Gruss.

What follows are images of Father Hathaway’s installation as pastor, followed by a Mass of thanksgiving.
