Please say a decade of the rosary and the prayer for priestly renewal for Fr. Tim Bunch, member of the ordination class of 1979 and currently pastor at St. Peter’s in Hamilton.
Also remember Fr. Paul Wolfer who died last night. He was one of the famous “Wolfer boys,” all of whom became priests : Fr. Stan, Fr. Joe, Fr. Paul and Fr. Bob. When Fr. Bob retired from St. Martin’s parish in 1993, he and his brother Paul moved into Our Lady of Lourdes. Even in his retirement, both kept bust by hearing confessions and celebrating daily Mass. He was never afraid to teach the hard moral truths of the Catholic faith. As an aside, he always ate like a horse and never gained a pound, always staying thin. He also loved to whistle a lot. He spent the last couple of years taking care of his younger brother Fr. Bob, who had a stroke a couple of years back. HE was the model of a good, faithful and holy priest. He will be missed.
