St. Edward’s Stephen Ministers invite you to a prayer service for Fr. Mike Tegeder this Sunday, July 10th. The rosary will be prayed at 6:00pm followed by a prayer service at about 6:15pm, both in the church. Those who wish may move to the chapel for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, which will begin soon after the prayer service and end at 8:15pm. Fr. Mike Tegeder is currently receiving hospice care, surrounded by family. Fr. Mike was pastor at St. Edward’s Church from 1998-2011.
“Over and over (in preaching, in his actions, prayers, etc.) he [Fr. Mike] has communicated a loving, compassionate, merciful God … who would have us act the same way,” Chris Kosowski, Cabrini’s liturgist, noted in an email [and published in Ruben Rosario’s recent column, “Well done, good and faithful servant“].
