Well done, good and faithful servant! As we gather for liturgy this weekend, we want to acknowledge a parishioner who has given much of himself as one of the Trustees of Holy Cross Parish: Bert Young. Ten years ago, Father Bill McNiff recommended to the Bishop of St. Cloud that he appoint Bert to hold this unique position of Trustee in our parish. Over the decade, Bert has been faithful to this role and ministry in our parish and we parishioners are grateful to him.
Since his term can no longer be extended, we need to have Bishop Kinney appoint a new Trustee. We pastors are looking for suggestions from the parishioners as to names to consider for this position. (Presently, Kathy Lundeen is the other Trustee of the parish.) If you would like to suggest a name or a number of names, please contact one of the pastors. At the November meeting of the Pastoral Council, the members will help us pastors in selecting a new Trustee for the parish.
Once again, we say “THANK YOU, BERT” for all you have done for Holy Cross Parish. May God bless you for your goodness to us.
Father Jude, O.S.C.
