Diocesan Budget


Chapter of Calvary Cathedral Budget

The Chapter of Calvary Cathedral is the holding corporation of all properties utilized by The Diocese of South Dakota. The Chapter of Calvary Cathedral also owns title to the vehicles the Diocese uses as well as all diocesan endowments.

Because of that, all property expenses are budgeted through here, and monies withdrawn from the endowments for diocesan budget support is reflected in this budget.

The Chapter of Calvary Cathedral has nothing to do with Calvary Cathedral parish.
