Colombian Squires Mass At Saint Columban



Bishop Robert Finn, Bishop of the Diocese of Kansas City/Saint Joseph, visited Saint Columbans this weekend to say Mass with Denver and Greeley's Columbian Squires group serving as Alter Boys. The Squires serve together at Mass every couple months. Bishop Finn was invited and came to say Mass this weekend with the Squires. It was an honor to have one of the Churches finest Bishops with us, we are truly blessed to have him as our Bishop.
The Squires next adventure will be a float trip down the Nianga River in June. They've had two fundraisers and all are set to go.

The kids went out mushroom hunting on our property and found some mushrooms early in the week. This past Thursday they attended a mushroom workshop with other homeschoolers at Swan Lake NWR. While there they found lots of mushrooms.
They also rescued a baby bunny alongside the road by our house. This baby bunny has caused quit the stir around the house.

Tom Came For Easter Hooray Hooray, Well Almost

Uncle Tom came over for First Friday at the Refuge and then spent Saturday at the Whitsons. He did the work on the chicken coup that we have been waiting for Deb to show up and help with. That just moved other things up the list for Deb. Deb says thanks Tom. Larry Bausch could come and see the new coup and eat some soup.
