Congratulations Msgr. Aaron Brodeski!

     Three Vocation Directors! Msgr. Aaron Brodeski (NET '91-'92) and Sr. Mary Emily ,O.P. (Kelly Knapp - NET '90-'91) - vocation director of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia (Nashville) - greet Sr. John Mary on the day of her Perpetual Profession of Vows - September 13, 2003.

     Heartfelt congratulations to Msgr. Aaron Brodeski, priest and vocation director of the Rockford, IL diocese. Today is his official installation as a "Monsignor"- a "Chaplain to His Holiness". Monsignor and our Sister John Mary were teammates when they worked with the National Evangelization Teams (NET Ministries). Have you heard of NET? It is a Catholic ministry working with youth primarily in the US, Canada and Australia. Sister worked with NET in 1991-1992 and 1992-1993 and still enjoys sharing the memories, skits and lessons learned from those formative years.

     Sister has been looking for an opportunity to promote NET on this blog for a couple months now and thought she would take this occasion to put in a good word! She also sends greetings to all her former teammates and all NETters who read this blog.

    Msgr. Brodeski, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you receive this papal honor! And happy 10th anniversary of priestly ordination!
