Monsignor Lammers to Retire in June, Sacred Heart Welcomes Father Alexander Gabriel

From the Pastor's Pen ... It is with mixed feelings that I announce that I will retire as of June 30, 2017. It will be hard for me to give up all the fulfilling ministry involved in being pastor of a parish. On the other hand, the carefree and leisure aspects of being retired will feel very good. I have said several things that left many of you wondering; It is time to settle the questions. In late December I met with Bishop Gaydos and finalized the decision with his blessing. My hope has been to retire and live in a rectory. God and Msgr. Robert Kurwicki have blessed me. St. Joseph Cathedral rectory has extra room, and at the end of June, I will move there. I will help out there when needed and do weekend supply at one or another parish if needed. And I will do a lot of leisure activities. Father Alexander Gabriel will be the successor of Monsignor Lammers, celebrating his first Mass at Sacred Heart on July 1. Father Alexander is from the Diocese of Daltonganj, India. He has been serving here in our Diocese for several years; most recently at Glasgow. Let us pray for all priests: those retiring, those moving to new parishes ... and let us pray for all seminarians and for young men to be open to a vocation to the priesthood.
