When in Rome!

During a recent visit to Rome, GK Andy and Susan Seger had the opportunity to meet up with Tim Eck, the seminarian we sponsor. Tim is there , appointed by Bishop Checcio, to study for the priesthood.His first few months was dedicated to learning Italian since all his classes are in that language.  During the summer months he will be traveling around the area advocating the priestly vocation.  Please keep Tim in your thoughts and prayers.

HONORS & ANNIVERSARIES: Please join me in congratulating the following brothers on attaining significant service milestones in April: 5 Years - Jeffrey Gove, 30 Years - Robert Carlson, 45 Years - John Takacs, and 50 Years - Edward Basel
