On March 1, 2010, Fr. Mike
arrived at Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish. He came to us at a
difficult time and smoothed the way for us to move forward and be the
parish family we are meant to be. Fr. Mike led us through a
Strategic Planning process in 2012 and the recent Parish Viability Study.
He has set us on course for the Be One program that is intended to address
key issues identified in the Archdiocese to assure that our parishes are
not only viable, but vibrant. He re-instituted and empanelled a new
Stewardship Committee and worked with this committee to carry out last
year's Increased Offertory Campaign. As a result of his efforts, our
parish is moving towards a much more solid financial status. He
approved and empanelled the new Facilities and Maintenance committee to
oversee maintenance of and planned capital improvements to the parish plant
and has worked with this committee throughout the last year in its
efforts to make the parish safer and more energy efficient.
While all of these
contributions on the part of Fr. Mike are noteworthy, he will still be
most remembered for introducing us to Sha-Boom, an armed pastor in camos,
and more turkey hunting stories than we ever thought possible to include
Thank you, Fr. Mike. You
will be missed.
