Flat Bishop

Flat bishopSimilar to the famous "Flat Stanley" story, the Diocese of Pueblo is offering an exciting opportunity for our faith formation classes as well as our middle school and high school students to participate in for the 75th Anniversary.
 
We're hoping that "Flat Bishop," as we're calling him, will enjoy the Diocese's 75th anniversary by appearing all across the diocese and beyond.
