Sean Kirst’s recent column about the global community at Our Lady of Hope captured so very well the spirit that is present in this multi-national, economically diverse, and faith-filled community. Many names were mentioned but there is one that deserves special recognition for what he has and continues to accomplish in this unique Catholic parish, Ronald Thaler.
Leadership is the key and without it many endeavors including parish life can diminish. Let the record show, Ron embodies the pastoral leadership needed today. Let those who seek a true servant of God look no further than the corner of Lafayette and Grant. Let those whose hearts burn with the fervor of discipleship know that parishes can thrive. A community such as Our Lady of Hope does not just happen without a leader. Well done servant of God, well done Ron!
