The Funeral arrangements have been finalized for Fr. Donald Thissen as relayed from our Diocesan Chancellor, Fr. John Lanzrath.
The Vigil will take place at 7:00 p.m. at All Saints on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. The Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:30 a.m. at All Saints on Thursday, January 23, 2014. A lunch will immediately follow the Mass in the gym at All Saints. Internment will be at Ascension Cemetery, (either at 1:30 or 2:00 p.m.) on Thursday. That time has yet to be finalized, but the other times and places are confirmed. For those who are not familiar with All Saints Church, it is just beside Via Christi Saint Joseph along East Harry.
If you are planning to attend especially at the funeral mass and have problem with transportation please contact the parish office. I believe there are some parishioners who might offer to carpool. For now, Teresa Davenport has offered to give a ride to I think 5 more people in her car. If there are others who are willing to carpool, you can post it here or call the parish office on Tuesday or Wednesday. I can have someone drive the church van and it can accommodate 8 persons including the driver. Fr. Roger
