Father Battiato busy in retirement

Editors’ Note: The Catholic Voice each year recognizes the services and plans of retiring priests with stories as those decisions are announced in the late spring or early summer. But the newspaper missed Father Ronald Battiato’s September retirement in 2011.

Kirtimayi Mishra, right, head of Catholic Relief Services’ office in India, talks about CRS’ Rice Bowl efforts Feb. 25 at St. Peter de Alcántara Church in Ewing with Sara and Curtis Lemburg, members of St. John the Baptist Parish in Deloit Township of rural Holt County, and their children, Trey, left, and Carter.

Joan Hoffman, a member of St. Theresa of Avila Parish in Clearwater, hugs Kirtimayi Mishra after Mass at the church Feb. 26 while Father James Kramper, pastor, looks on.

Small parishes lead in Rice Bowl contributions

The big parishes of the archdiocese might well be expected to top contributions in any financial campaign in the archdiocese.

Well, almost any.
