Parish family replaces stolen bike

NEW ‘CRUISER’ FOR SISTER—Sister Frances Wessel, SSND, recently had her bicycle stolen while she was on a ministry visit at Mercy Hospital in Springfield. Her ‘parish family’ of St. Joseph the Worker in Ozark held a ‘fill-the-boot’ fundraiser after Masses the weekend of Jan. 14-15 to assist Sr. Wessel with her lack of transportation. The parish raised enough money to buy her a brand-new, “sacred-heart-red”colored ‘cruiser,’ complete with basket, bell, lights, helmet, and a bike-lock. The bicycle was delivered on Jan. 18 and blessed by Fr. Scott Sunnenberg, pastor. Pictured were Carol Craig, St. Joseph the Worker Parish secretary, Fr. Sunnenberg, Sr. Wessel, and Bill Hennessey, Parish Council Member and Vice President of Mission Services at Mercy Springfield. This is a perfect example of the ‘love of one’s neighbor’ Msgr. Pope speaks about in this article. (Photo by J.B. Kelly/The Mirror)
