Message from Father Storey
Gaudete – Rejoice!

CONGRATULATIONS, FATHER TONY! Sunday, December 8, 2019, we have an extraordinary reason to say “Gaudete! Rejoice!” Sixty-five years ago Sunday, Father Tony was ordained to the priesthood in Rome, Italy. As you know, this exceptional priest, at 91 years of age, is still working in priestly service for you and your souls. As you leave church this weekend, please take a moment to wish Father Tony “Happy Anniversary” and thank him for his dedication to our parish. His has been a remarkable journey: from a farm boy in Eastern Kansas; to St. Benedict’s College in Atchison, KS; to attending seminary in Rome, Italy; to celebrating 65 years as a priest. I must say it again: Congratulations, Father Tony! May God bless you always!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SISTER JULIE! We have another reason to say “Gaudete! Rejoice! Sunday is Sister Julie’s 90 th birthday. We are blessed to have her as a vital part of our parish. There will be a tea in the Father Burak Room this Sunday, December 8 from 2 - 4 pm honoring Sister Julie. Please try to come and honor Sister Julie on this awesome occasion. Happy Birthday, Sister Julie! May you have many more!
