Pastor’s Message:
Magnificent, Perfect Day for Blessing and Dedication of Our New Building

We estimate that around 750 - 800 people attended the Blessing and Dedication of our Education & Activity Center on Sunday, August 9! To say the very least, it was a magnificent, perfect day.

The one-hour program was filled with laughter and applause, speeches and tributes, thank yous and prayer, music and song. The Vic DiCristo Trio played for two hours, and people were even dancing. People kept saying “wow” and “oh” and “beautiful” every time they entered one of the 26 new classrooms or labs. The biggest accolades went to the gym, the library, and the music/band rooms. The assistant superintendent of Catholic schools said, “Now you have a building equal to the caliber of school you have.”

Jason Stenz, parishioner and project manager, spent lots of time to make sure everything was ready to go for the big day. Darryl Draeger and the maintenance team worked overtime all week to set the place up. Everything was ready and in perfect order. Thanks, Darryl and Jim Schreiber, Brian Willbrandt, Gary Fatla, Tyler Richardson, Collin Mulcahy and Nick Swietlik.

Greg Schmidt from the Pastoral Council chaired the planning team for the Dedication. Hours of work all paid off. Thank you. I can’t think of a single thing that needed improvement. Our trustee John Schauble served as master of ceremonies. Jim Michaletz provided a gorgeous full-color program.

Archbishop Listecki’s words were warm and praiseworthy. He walked with Father Justin to each and every classroom to bless the people and walls with holy water. So that school is really blessed! Then the archbishop stayed to meet and visit with people. He knows what a strong parish we have, and how seriously we take the Christian formation and education of our near 1,000 children and youth.
We had free cake and ice cream for all who attended. The tours were greatly appreciated. Many folks wanted to see virtually every room, and stayed for two hours looking around, till after 4:00. That is because there is a lot to see. There were hundreds of questions, too. (STEM Lab means science-technology-engineering-math)

Our Christian Formation Department of Maria Spenner, Chris Crom, and Tracy Dereszynski are so pleased that our 600 children in CF will now have ample room to have religion class every week, and all of it on one campus. This will be so much easier on parents, too. CF has a dedicated closet just for them in every classroom.

Kelly Swietlik and our school staff and teachers think they have gone to heaven to be able to come every day to such a beautiful, spacious, air-conditioned building. At least for the next few years, our school and gym will be the envy of all Cedarburg.

Father Justin and I are so proud to be your priests. Thank you for your support and stewardship.
