By Kyle Eller / The Northern Cross Bishop Paul Sirba, diocesan clergy and a group of the faithful gathered for Mass Oct. 5 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary to mark the 125th anniversary of the Diocese of Duluth, kicking off a year of commemoration.
Bishop Sirba had transferred the diocesan patronal feast, Our Lady of the Rosary, from its normal date on Oct. 7 for the occasion. In his homily, the bishop gave a brief view of the earliest history of what became the Diocese of Duluth, with Mass probably first being offered around 1741 in Grand Portage by a Jesuit professor of mathematics. After a few successors, there was no Mass for about a century, he said, until the arrival of Ven. Frederick Baraga.
