Happy feast day to St. John the Baptist Church in Whiting, Ind., whose steeple is shown here, and St. John the Baptist Church in Maria Stein, Ohio. June 24, when it doesn't fall on a Sunday, is when the Church celebrates the birth of St. John the Baptist, who was given his calling before he was even born. May we all listen to God's call in our life with the same unwavering faith as St. John the Baptist.

Congratulations to Fr. LeRoy Moreeuw, C.PP.S., who this year is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his ordination.

Fr. Moreeuw, 81, a native of Detroit, entered the society in 1963 and was ordained on May 18, 1968. He has been involved in parish ministry, vocation work and teaching during his years as a priest.

After his ordination, Fr. Moreeuw became an instructor at Brunnerdale, the Society’s former high school seminary in Canton, Ohio, from 1968 to 1972. In 1972, he was appointed associate pastor of St. Peter Church in Harper Woods, Mich. He first came to Our Lady of Good Counsel in Cleveland as an associate pastor in 1975, and served there for seven years at that time.

In 1982, Fr. Moreeuw was appointed formation director for the Missionaries. He was named pastor of Precious Blood Church in Fort Wayne, Ind., in 1983. In 1996, he returned to Our Lady of Good Counsel in Cleveland as its pastor. He served there until 2010, when he moved to Old St. Mary’s Church in Detroit, where he is senior priest in residence. In addition to celebrating daily Mass, he gives spiritual direction to priests and seminarians.

Fr. Moreeuw’s anniversary, along with the milestone anniversaries of 12 other Missionaries of the Precious Blood of the Cincinnati Province, signifying hundreds of years of ministerial service to God’s people, will be celebrated in a special liturgy on July 2 at St. Charles Center.

“The lives of these C.PP.S. priests and brothers are an example of faithfulness and commitment for all of us,” said Fr. Larry Hemmelgarn, C.PP.S., provincial director of the Cincinnati Province of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. “We thank God for their lives of service, which have brought so much good to so many.”

Congratulations to Brother Timothy Hemm, C.PP.S., who this year is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his profession as a religious brother.

Br. Tim, 70, a native of Piqua, Ohio, entered the Society in 1961 and was professed a brother on August 15, 1968. He has been active in education ministry for many years.

Br. Tim first taught at St. Joseph School in Wapakoneta, Ohio, before being assigned in 1972 to Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind., which is sponsored by the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. He has been a part of campus life at Saint Joseph’s ever since, performing many functions at the college. While operations at the college were suspended in May 2017, Br. Tim remains on campus helping to care for the building and grounds while a plan for it to reemerge as a new institution is put in place.

Br. Tim’s anniversary, along with the milestone anniversaries of 12 other Missionaries of the Precious Blood of the Cincinnati Province, signifying hundreds of years of ministerial service to God’s people, will be celebrated in a special liturgy on July 2 at St. Charles Center.

“The lives of these C.PP.S. priests and brothers are an example of faithfulness and commitment for all of us,” said Fr. Larry Hemmelgarn, C.PP.S., provincial director of the Cincinnati Province of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. “We thank God for their lives of service, which have brought so much good to so many.”
