A couple major events are happening in the near future in our church.  After fourteen years as your pastor, I am going to a new ministry in St. Louis.  You have been a vital part of my life and ministry for so long.  It will be tough to move on.  I have celebrated over 4,800 Masses here at St. Paschal Church.  I have had well over 150 funerals.  I have presided over more than 180 baptisms and have had the privilege to receive almost 70 new Catholics into the Church.  This has been my home for a long, long time.     

The other big event happening is the work being done on our Strategic Plan.  This work had been put on hold for almost a year, but now is back on the front burner.  Hopefully, we will see some significant changes in ministry and in the physical plant in the future.
