Niobrara School for Ministry

Upcoming Ministry Weekend:

Dakota Experience East or West

Though technically not a part of the Niobrara School for Ministry, Dakota Experience is an educational course open to anyone interested in the culture, history, spirituality, and theology of the Dakota/Lakota people. We hold one class in the Fall on the Eastern side of the state. And again in the Spring on the Western side of the state. It is required for people in the ordination process and for clergy new to the diocese to attend one of these classes.

Cost is $30 which covers 2 meals.

The session begins at 5:30 pm on Friday with supper, and ends about 2:00 pm on Saturday, after lunch.

  • November 11-12, 2016 Dakota Experience, East Calvary Cathedral, Sioux Falls Fall 2016
