Throughout 2014, Fr. Don Berge continued to serve the parish under the oversight of Fr. John Mashburn. On April 27, 2014, Bishop Thomas came to visit the mission and begin the process of selecting a patron saint and registering the mission on the Archdiocese website.
On August 10, 2014, Bishop Antoun granted us mission status, and we were officially given St. Nicholas as a patron saint. In December of 2014, we celebrated our first patronal feast.
