Who We Are

The Diocese of Northern Indiana is a missionary diocese. "Look around you," Jesus said, "see how the fields are ripe for harvesting" (John 4:35). The 36 parishes and missions of the diocese—found in urban areas of wonderful complexity, in rich farmlands, in burgeoning suburbs, in university communities—share a single purpose: to make Jesus known to a needy world. Every congregation is a missionary church. Our buildings are surrounded by people, hundreds of thousands of them, who hunger (perhaps not even knowing it) for the "bread of life" (John 6:35).

For the Mission of the Church

Everliving God, whose will it is that all should come to you through your Son Jesus Christ: Inspire our witness to him, that all may know the power of his forgiveness and the hope of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
