Father Paul's Retirement Party
Father Paul Surprenant, will be retiring on July 2, 2017. After 45 years as a priest in the Diocese of Winona, it is time for this good and faithful servant to relax and enjoy time with family and friends as well as pursuing his hobbies of woodworking and antiquing.
A Retirement/Housewarming Party will be held is in his honor at The Church of the Holy Family in Kasson on Friday, June 23, 2017 from 5:30–8:30pm. All are invited!
If you have any photos with Fr. Surprenant or if you have a special thought, prayer or memory, please email them to email@example.com. Photos will be on display boards to remember his time as a priest in the different parishes he has served. All thoughts, memories and prayers will be printed and presented to him at his party.
The leadership of both parishes have come forward and are planning a retirement party for me. After 45 years as an ordained priest in the Diocese of Winona this will be a new experience for me. Not only do I need to find a place to live, but I will need many things for my new home. The planning group suggested that I register at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond as a couple planning a wedding would do.
If you would like to extend well wishes to him, please mail to: Church of Christ the King, Fr. Paul Surprenant, PO Box 1000, Byron, MN 55920. We hope you can join us in celebrating this wonderful Man of God.
