January 20, 2016

Storm Lake St. Mary’s students surprised Bishop R. Walker Nickless Wednesday morning with congratulatory cards for his 10th anniversary as Bishop of Diocese of Sioux City – complete with reference to the Denver Broncos, his favorite football team.

The students took a break from their homecoming activities to greet the shepherd of the diocese on the St. Mary’s campus. The bishop was in Storm Lake for a clergy day meeting on his anniversary.
