From Fr. Ron's Desk...

Fr. Ron Wagner, Pastor

Of Mind and Heart ​

​We said farewell to seminarian Andy Cipolla last weekend. He had a chance to get to know the parish a little and serve at mass and was a great help for the recent Vacation Bible School and the Holy Hour on August 5th. I’ve enjoyed his company at the rectory and his cooking. He loves to watch movies, the louder the better it seems, although we watched some more quieter movies too. He is very skilled technology wise, but I don’t know if he was able to teach me any new tricks. The majority of his time was spent as Camp Chaplain at Cole Canoe Base Scout Camp in Alger. He will be spending some time with his family and friends before he returns to St. Meinrad School of Theology for his first year of theology. God willing, he will be ordained about four years from now.

On Monday, August 15th, we will have a Mass at 9:30 a.m. for the Feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. Because it falls on a Monday, people are dispensed from the obligation to attend, but since she is the patronal saint of the Diocese, I thought it fitting to celebrate Mass. I hope you can join us.

We will have a joint meeting of the Pastoral and Finance Councils on Thursday, August 18th at 6:30 p.m. in the social hall. I hope all council members can attend as we plan for another year.
