A Message from Bishop Mike 



Dear Friends in Christ,

   For the past several years we have used our annual Convocation as a time to discuss the four priority areas of our diocesan pastoral plan, All at the TableEngaging Youth and Young Adults; Building Christ-Centered Communities; Fostering Christian Discipleship; and Promoting Ordained and Consecrated Life. Not only that, we have engaged in a first-ever diocesan capital campaign to secure the funding that will help us sustain our ministries into the future. 


   Throughout all of these efforts, we continue to recognize and celebrate the wonderful diversity of our Church.  Such diversity provides tremendous opportunities for growth and new life.  Such diversity also challenges us to look at how well we are ministering to the various cultural groups that enrich our diocese. In particular, our Convocation on June 9-12th will give us the opportunity to discern our ministry efforts to the growing Hispanic/Latino population in our diocese. I ask for your prayers for our Convocation gathering as we continue to address the challenges and opportunities that face the Catholic Church in Idaho.


Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Michael P. Driscoll, MSW, DD

Bishop of Idaho










Synod on the Family Synopsis



The Synod on the Family synopsis outlines some good insights on how the Church can better support families.  In this sense, it can serve as a working document for pastoral action.  However, it is important to note that the responses received are PERSONAL OPINIONS and often do not accurately reflect Church teaching on the issues addressed, nor do they represent the position/teaching of the Diocese of Boise.
