    Kubat Family: your parents were impactful upon my priestly calling and Christian discipleship. They strove to follow the Lord whom they loved dearly. I thank them, and you, for giving Father Chris to the holy priesthood of Jesus Christ. Please know of my remembrance of your Barbara at the altar.

    I recall meeting your mother at her garage sale… and buying kitchen cabinets that served me well for many years. I trust you have many fond memories of your sweet mother and I know you have a large circle of support lifting you up in prayer during your time of loss. All my best to Barb and Nick, Fr. Chris, and the entire family.
