October 11, 2009
National Children’s Day
I just finished watching the a great
baseball game, with the Twins
victorious over the Detroit Tigers to
win the Central Division crown in a
playoff game before the largest regular
season crowd ever in the Metrodome.
As all of you probably know, it was a
game of comebacks, opportunities
seized and squandered, familiar heroes
and unlikely heroes. While I don’t subscribe to any
notion that God favors one baseball team over another
(do Twins fans pray more than Tigers fans?) I do
sometimes let my imagination go and find metaphors
for the life, death and resurrection in just about
anything. A month ago the Twins seemed doomed to
founder to a 3rd place finish – but ah! New hopes, new
life. The weak became strong – Alexis Casilla. Those
who made mistakes earlier were redeemed.
Teammates picked each other up. The community
succeeded. Maybe even the feuding Delmon Young
and Jose Mijares embraced. The excitement and joy
was palpable.
Now … if we are that excited, if we have that much
passion about this ballgame and this team, watch,
listen to and read about it all (and I count myself
among this) why does it seem harder to be as excited,
as fascinated, as participatory, as passionate about
redemption and rising from the dead? I’m really not a
kill joy – we can be excited about both. And Christian
life should be one of joy – there really aren’t many
crabby saints. Christian life and worship engages us in
all the tension, fears, joy and redemption we could
possibly handle. How can we get there? How can we
be motivated to read, watch, listen, study to the point

where we understand our faith and know Jesus as well
as we know the baseball and the Twins? If we didn’t
understand anything about baseball, we wouldn’t care
– we would pick up on the excitement of those around
us for it, and be driven to learn more. Can the same
thing happen with a story that lasts beyond October?
Can we display our joy that we have a way out of Hell,
that we have hope for life after death? Friedrich
Nietzsche, a very anti-Christian philosopher of the late
19th century, commenting on the demeanor of so many
Christians said this: “Christians? They don’t look
saved.” As we come to understand our possibilities
and the gift given us, maybe we will start to look like
we are saved.
As we continue in Respect Life month, our parishes
will have (or have had) visiting speakers. Last week a
representative of Silent No More, a group of people,
male and female, who have been involved with having,
procuring, or performing abortions and now realize the
negative effect it has had on their lives spoke at St.
Joseph’s and at St. Pius V. This weekend the director
of the Hastings Total Life Care Center will speak
before the Masses at St. John’s, St. Mary’s and St. Mathias.

accepted as a candidate for the Archdiocese of St. Paul
Imagine being asked by the Archbishop if you would be
willing to be the new Pastor for three Catholic parishes
at St. Mathias in Hampton, St. Mary’s in New Trier,
and St. John the Baptist in Vermillion. Well that is
exactly the challenge Father Stan Mader has accepted.
Father Stan attended the parish grade school at St.
Bonifacius until 6th grade, Waverly for 7th-8th grade,
then high school grades 9th-12th at Holy Trinity in
Winsted where he graduated in 1974. While in school,
he enjoyed his teachers and classes, going to dances,
sports and the normal high school things. He lived 23
miles from school, and there was no busing, so he and
his siblings were limited in their extra curricular
activities, but he still managed to be in some intramural
sports and was president of the Student Council and
and Minneapolis, shut down his business, and entered
the seminary. “All sorts of things went into the
decision,” Fr. Stan said. “I felt my talents matched up
with the task, I wanted to teach others about God and
the Church, I realized I enjoyed people of all ages, and
once I finally decided that making a commitment in life
could be more liberating than confining, it all came
together. In addition, I was receiving support from
family and friends who thought I could be a good priest
– and finally, it seemed like it would be fun. And it is.”
He entered The Saint Paul Seminary in the autumn of
After high school graduation, he attended college at St. 1988 and was ordained a priest on May 30, 1992 at the

Council will be meeting this

St. Mathias School
Mrs. Angie Petit, Principal
PreK– Grade 5
Last week we received a letter
from MNSAA, the Minnesota
Nonpublic School Accrediting
Association, which reinstated
accreditation for St. Mathias School.
Every seven years a school goes
through a rigorous accreditation
process which reviews curriculum,
legal compliance, marketing plans,
administration and governing
bodies and a number of other critical
areas. We are pleased with the
progress we have made in some of
these areas which had enabled us to
be accredited, and are rolling up our
sleeves to finish the work necessary
to retain this status throughout the
next seven years. One part of this
will be to create an advisory board
for the school and a marketing plan.
Please Father Stan know whether
you are interested in either of these
areas. You need not be a current
school parent to be part of it.
Eucharistic Adoration has an
immediate need for a someone to
stay with the Lord from 7:00 to
8:00 pm Thursdays beginning
October 15. If one or two families
would like to share this hour,
please contact Olive Hupf at
507-263-2705 or [email protected]
Several years ago a $350,000 capital campaign was undertaken for
St. Mathias. Several major projects have been completed using some of
that money, such as repairing the parking lot, roof repairs, the lift in the
church, and some work on the confessional area. Some money remains,
and more is still coming in. There are a number of items remaining on the
earlier wish/want/need list. We are taking steps to see what will be
needed in order to begin on those projects. A partial list of remaining
possibilities are painting the interior, repairing cracks, removal or
replacement of lighting fixtures, more work to soundproof the
confessional. We are determining what needs to be done to allow us to
move ahead with some of these projects. We expect to have a meeting in
the next two months to inform you of what we know and ask input on
what to do next. We’ll keep you informed.

Fr. Stan pedaling at the Festival!
(continued from page 3)
He enjoys hiking, and has done river kayaking, rock
climbing dog sledding in the past.
Father Stan presided over his first mass in the area at
St. Mary’s in New Trier on Friday, July 3rd. He has
said mass at all 3 parishes over the past seven weeks
and is getting to know the people. One of the hardest
challenges he faced was having to revise mass
schedules. With 1 priest serving the 3 churches, each
parish was going to have to have mass changes. St.
Mathias in Hampton will continue to have mass on
Saturday evening at 5:00 p.m., but changed from
Sunday 10:00 a.m. mass to a Sunday evening service at
6:30 p.m. St. Mary’s in New Trier have just one Mass,
Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. St. John the Baptist will
have Mass on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. Each
parish also has two weekday Masses. “I know change
is difficult, but this had to be done. I cannot possible
serve the congregations with the current schedule”, he
said. This new schedule will begin in 2 weeks. He is
also appreciative of working with Father Jay Kythe
who is the pastor for St. Pius Church in Cannon Falls
and St. Josephs Church in Miesville. Both churches
are beginning new mass schedules as well on Labor
Day weekend. At St. Pius, Saturday’s evening mass
will be at 4:00 p.m. and Sunday’s morning masses are
at 7:30 a.m. & 9:00 a.m. At St. Joseph’s, Saturdays
mass is at 6:00 p.m. and Sunday mass is at 10:30 a.m.
When asked what his goals for the three parishes are,
he said, “I just want to get to know people and be a
good Pastor for the 3 churches. I enjoy teaching both
children and adults, and will parish schools and
religious education classes. I also hope to teach adults
in the evenings. We’ll have to work together as
parishes and plan together a bit as we move forward. I
hope to have fewer meetings and more home visits
with the people. I love being a priest, and am eager to
learn from you and serve you as well”, he said. What
struggles does Father Stan see ahead, “I understand
you’ve had two and even at times three priests before
me, and two of these parishes have had a lot of
turnover in pastors. But I plan to be here for awhile. I
want parishioners to realize I understand what it
means to come from a rural area, and that I really care
about them. I believe I have the energy and experience
to serve them well. I also hope and pray that people of
all three parishes will support each other and work
with each other” he said.
This Sunday, August 23 St. Mathias will hold their
annual Fun Festival beginning with a Polka Mass at
10:00 a.m. St. John’s the Baptist in Vermillion will
hold their parish festival September 26 & 27, and St.
Mary’s in New Trier will hold their annual Sausage
Supper in November.
Father currently is living in the convent at St. Mathias,
but in the coming week he will start moving into the
rectory at St. John the Baptist in Vermillion. As we
finished the interview, Father was off to parishioner’s
home where he was invited to have lunch. He said he
likes to eat pretty much anything and loves dinner

Do you know the date of your
Baptism? Well, on that day, you
became a missionary, called by our
lord to share your faith with those
around you - and to be part of the
Church's mission to the world.
Jesus Himself directed His
followers to go into the whole
world and proclaim His Gospel the "Good News" of His love for us
- to all peoples (see Mark 16:15).
That mission is now directed to
each one of us. On World Mission
Sunday, October 17-18, we have the
opportunity to be part of the
Church's missionary work in Asia,
Africa, Latin America and the
Pacific Islands through our prayers
and support offered to the Society
for the Propagation of the Faith.

speaker at the Pray It Forward
