We are a Catholic cluster of parishes located in Chickasaw, Howard, and Mitchell counties. Our parishes include Saint Bernard (Alta Vista), Our Lady of Lourdes (Lourdes), Immaculate Conception (Elma), Immaculate Conception (Riceville), Saint Peter (New Haven). We were formed in July 2005. This cluster offers a variety of activities designed to meet the spiritual, pastoral, and social needs of Catholics in the area. Each parish has its own programming and identity, but we share resources in order to better serve the wider community. We hope this web site is a useful means of communicating our vision and mission. Please let us know how we can help you. We are open to suggestions about improving our site.
