Golden Jubilee of Ordination!

One of our chaplains, Fr. Dick Ament celebrates his 50th year of Ordination this year.  Since we couldn’t join him at the official celebration at St. Lawrence in Otter Creek, Iowa we decided to have a celebration of our own.  After Mass last Thursday we had a special brunch and visited with Fr. Dick.  He shared with us on his past ministries and about the celebration last Sunday at St. Lawrence.  At present Fr. Dick is an active retiree helping out at various churches in the area and our community a few day a week.  Congratulations Fr. Dick!
