“I am grateful to Rob Schollmeyer, Mark Mehmert and Teresa Skaggs for their willingness to head up a fundraising committee for the MPH Cemetery Fund. We are thinking of an event (Fish Fry, Bar-b-que, or steak night) for the end of July. We will have a planning meeting on Wednesday, June 3, at 7pm in the rectory. All are welcome to come and bring your ideas for making this a success.
     “We are saddened by the news of the death of Rex White. Our prayers are with him, his family and friends.  Visitation is from 4:00-8:00 p.m. on Sunday at Millard’s in Chamois.  The funeral will be Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. at MPH.  Eternal Rest Grant to Him Oh Lord.”…Fr. Dave
