Father Lee Piche Named Auxiliary Bishop
My Pastor and Vicar-General, Father Lee Piche, has just been named by His Holiness as Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis.
At St. Andrew, this past weekend, we just celebrated his 25th Anniversary of Ordination. Now this. Wow!
Now, he's not just my Pastor. Well, technically, he never totally was, but I feel I had "dibs" on him. Now, I HAVE to share him with all of you. *sigh*
I've served with Father on the Parish Council. He's very kind, a good listener, raises good questions, direct, honest, self-deprecating. He always wants to wait on me when I visit the Rectory and I know the Parish Secretary's have told me the same thing. He's always checking to see if he can do anything for your comfort. A good host. A model of service.
We are very lucky. We were lucky to have him even before this elevation. We are lucky to have all ANY of our priests. Period.
He tells howlingly bad jokes. He knows it. He's able to pull it off. LOL!
