St. Cloud Diocese breaks ground on priest retirement center

The St. Cloud Diocese has broken ground for a two-million dollars priest retirement center in Sauk Rapids.Bishop John Kinney says priests who give their lives to the church deserve a place to retire.

The retirement home will be just over 30,000 square feet, and will have 14 housing units -- including two suits for retired bishops. The center is on the site of the former Sacred Heart Church. The priests will use the existing church as a worship center. An anonymous couple has pledged to match up to 600,000-dollars in any new donations that come in. Grand Forks Herald
