1962-1965


With the coming of the Second Vatican Council in 1962, changes began in the liturgical practices of the church, resulting in the laity’s growing role in the parish. These changes have led to a variety of lay ministries.

Fr. Louis Nowak who was appointed pastor following the death of Fr. Kubelbeck in 1962, implemented many of the changes promulgated by the council.

    It was great to see a picture of my Dad, George Bleskan along with Father Nowak and our neighbors. My Dad was in charge of counting the collection and I was recruited to help him each Sunday morning. Father Nowak came to our house once a week for dinner. He was my Dad’s best friend.
