Fr. Kubelbeck Honored with Title of Monsignor



On April 11, 1951, a great honor came to Ss. Anthony and Margaret Parish and its zealous Pastor, when Father Kubelback was named a Right Reverend Monsignor by Pope Pius XII. Elevated to the rank of Protonotary Apostolic, he was invested by Bishop Albert G. Meyer.

One of the privileges of a Protonotary Apostolic, is that the Monsignor may, at certain times, celebrate Mass while wearing Potifical vestments. These included a white mitre, a ring and a pectoral Cross.

The ladies of the parish prepared the banquet for the visiting clergy and relatives of Monsignor Kubelbeck in the school hall.
