Peace of Christ. This past Monday, August 9th, our Pastor Fr. Tim Kitzke began experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. He began a self-quarantine, was tested, and learned late on Tuesday, August 10th that he tested positive for the virus. Thankfully, he is resting peacefully at his residence at Holy Rosary Church and has no need of additional medical care.
We’re grateful for the assistance of our priests and staff who have already made arrangements to cover his weddings, funerals, Baptisms, and parish Masses during this time. We’re blessed by a wonderful team who are working hard to ensure things will run smoothly in his absence! Please keep Fr. Tim in your continued prayers and we ask for your patience as he recuperates.
Fr. Tim is fully vaccinated and did not experience COVID symptoms until Monday, August 9th, but we communicate all the same that he was the Presider for the 4 PM and 10 AM Masses at OLDP-St. Casimir this past weekend. Should anyone test positive for the virus because of a possible contact with Fr. Tim at these Masses or in any other way, kindly contact the parish office to make us aware.
Entrusting Fr. Tim and all of us during this unusual time to Mary, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, we remain,
Sincerely Yours in the Lord,
Chad Griesel, Pastoral Associate, Fr. John & Fr. Michael, Associate Pastors
