About the Employer: In the year 2000, the parishes of Most Holy Rosary, Lima, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Mondovi, and St. Mary's Assumption, Durand became one community through a shared pastor. Our Catholic family has grown and changed together in many ways over the past nearly 20 years, and we strive to welcome all who live and work beside us. We have made a great effort to become a consolidated community in the Tri-Parish, yet each parish still retains its own individual "flavor" which we celebrate through many ways each year.
