In Loving Memory
This has been a week of sadness mingled with prayers of gratitude to God as we say farewell to two of our beloved priests. God has called two special priests home.
On Monday, we celebrated the funeral Mass for Fr. Phil Krogman at St. Mary’s, Bloomington. He loved his home parish of St. Mary’s and St. Mary’s School. Fr. Phil spoke about how much his faith was nurtured by his family, community and parish school. This formed the foundation to answer God’s call to the priesthood. For 57 years, he served as a priest for the Diocese of Madison and was the oldest pastor in the diocese.
One day later, we received that news that Fr. Bill Seipp had passed to eternal life. Fr. Bill loved Lancaster and Cassville and considered them as his dual home. Again St. Clements was the community that formed him in his faith and it was through this foundation that he answered God’s call to the priesthood. Fr. Seipp felt privileged to be the pastor of both St. Clement Parish and St. Charles Parish. He was thankful to be able to stay in his home on the river in Cassville. I am deeply grateful for his enormous help in our cluster of parishes.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace. Amen.
