One day this week Fr. Robert Krueger will move past his 60th year of ordination. He will probably not mark this anniversary with pomp and circumstance, but with authentic simplicity and the grace that comes from genuine faith.
Over the years Fr. Bob’s commitment to non-violence and peacemaking, to justice for those who live on the margins of society, and his sincere appreciation of people from all walks of life have made him a well beloved Pastor and Priest. Even in his “retirement’ he continues to preach, teach and offer the Sacraments with a commitment and energy that many younger people find challenging.
On Sunday the Community of St. Francis gave him a basket full of hand written good wishes along with a bouquet of flowers. Then, before he blessed the Community at the end of Mass, the Community sang a blessing over him.
Happy 60th Anniversary Fr. Bob. Thank you for all you have done for God’s People in your many years of fruitful ministry. May you continue to enjoy good health and happiness for years to come.
