Weekly Reflections by Joseph Zenk, Parish Director

I mentioned in the bulletin last week that

we had recently hired Kerry Sievert as the new

principal of Divine Savior Catholic School. I

wanted to take my column this weekend and give

you some background on just who Kerry is and

what experience he brings to the position.

Kerry grew up in Kiel and attended Ss. Peter

and Paul Catholic School as a youth. He graduated

from Kiel High School in 1973 and graduated

from UW-Oshkosh in 1977 with a degree in

Elementary Education. He began his teaching

career that fall at St. Mary School in Tomah. Kerry

went back to school for a Masters in Administrative

Leadership which he received from UW-Milwaukee

in 1987. He has just completed his 36th year

in Catholic education, 30 as a principal, and

the last eighteen years as principal at St. John

- Sacred Heart School in Sherwood. Kerry is

deeply committed to the values associated

with education in a religious environment and

looks forward to working together with the

families of New Holstein, Kiel, and St. Anna to

continue and to build upon the rich history of

Catholic education in this corner of the diocese. He

has been active with the education department of

the diocese as well, serving on numerous curriculum

and staff development committees. He has been

trained as a supportive consultant and has served

on several accreditation school visitation

teams. Kerry has also chaired several regional

committees of the Diocesan Association of School

Administrators (DASA) and has served on the

executive committee of DASA.

In addition to his roles as teacher and principal,

Kerry has been very active in the Church as choir

member, Lector, Eucharistic Minister, Scrip seller,

and parish council member. Kerry currently serves

on the Education Committee of Roncalli High School.

Readings for the Week

Monday Is 49:1-6/Acts 13:22-26/Lk 1:57-66, 80

Tuesday Gn 13:2, 5-18/Mt 7:6, 12-14

Wednesday Gn 15:1-12, 17-18/Mt 7:15-20

Thursday Gn 16:1-12, 15-16/Mt 7:21-29

Friday Gn 17:1,9-10, 15-22/Mt 8:1-4

Saturday Acts 12:1-11/2 Tm 4:6-8, 17-18/

Mt 16:13-19

Weekend 1 Kgs 19:16b, 19-21/Gal 5:1, 13-18

Lk 9:51-62

Kerry has been married for 30 years. His

wife Bonnie is a music teacher and campus minister

at St.Francis of Assisi School in Manitowoc and

music teacher at St. Gregory School in St. Nazianz. She

also directs one of the parish choirs. They have

three children. Twins Katie and Kevin are 19.

After graduating from Roncalli High School, they

just completed their freshman year at Silver Lake

College. His youngest daughter, Erin, will be

starting 6th grade this coming fall.

Kerry is also a member of the National

Catholic Education Association, and the Association

of Supervision and Curriculum Development. For

his “off” time, Kerry enjoys being a basketball official

with the WIAA and is the president of the Manitowoc

County Civil War Round Table. In fact, you may

have seen him ref a number of games here in Kiel

just recently. He is also a member of Manitowoc

County Sports Officials Association and the Manitowoc

County Historical Society.

Just recently, the Diocese of Green Bay set

forth some norms and guidelines for schools

wishing to be considered “Schools of Distinction”

within the diocese. The first year this was a possibility,

there were two schools so honored. One of them

was St. John – Sacred Heart in Sherwood under

Kerry’s leadership.

I’m excited to welcome Kerry to Divine Savior

and hope you are as well. If you are looking for a

Catholic Education for your child and family – one

where they are immersed into our Catholic faith

and formed as young disciples – I sincerely hope

you consider Divine Savior for your family. We

will be hosting a Meet and Greet with Kerry on

Monday, July 15, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the

school. All are invited to come meet the newest

member of our linked staff.

Join us next week as our readings’ focus is:

“We are to live as disciples of Christ.” God

calls each of us to live lives of holiness. Each

day, this will require us to make decisions to

follow Christ in a world filled with competing

priorities and messages.

Year of Faith (Oct. 11, 2012 – Nov. 24, 2013)

Jesus prays in solitude in our Gospel today. As

our Year of Faith continues, let’s follow in his

example this week. Take time each day to pray

in solitude.




2013 Mission Cooperation Plan Appeal Speaker

It is wonderful to be able to sponsor the Diocesan

Mission Cooperation Appeal in our parishes again

this year. This weekend at all our linked parish

Masses, we will be honored to have Sister Louise

Grundish, SC with us to share the good news of

the mission works of the Sisters of Charity of Seton

Hill in China, Korea and Ecuador.

The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill first missioned

four American sisters from Pennsylvania to Korea in

1960 and today there are 206 sisters in the Korean

Province. In 1960 it took a month for the sisters

to travel by freighter ship, now it takes about 14

hours by airplane! As our world grows smaller,

our hearts grow larger and we reach out to others.

We are pleased to have this opportunity to learn

about the missions and to find ways to help with

our prayers and donations. As the sisters continue

to bring the love of the Lord to the people they

serve, they need our help—they cannot do it

alone! Wherever we may live we are all missionaries

and help in different ways!

Please give from the heart on June 22-23 to help

spread the Gospel throughout the world and assist

the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill to share God’s

love with the poor.

God Bless You for your generosity!

Joe Out of Office

Joe will be out of the office this week

and returning next weekend, June 29

& 30. If you need to talk with someone,

please contact Deacon Pat Knier at


Board of Trustees Meeting

The Board of Trustees for Divine Savior School will

meet in the parish center at Ss. Peter & Paul this

coming Tuesday, June 25, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Disaster Relief Collection

We have all seen the pictures and heard the

stories of the destruction in Oklahoma because

of the recent tornados there. If you would like

to give to the relief effort, we have an opportunity

through Catholic Financial Life. Catholic Financial

Life has communicated to both the St. Ann and

Holy Rosary branches of CFL (Ss. Peter & Paul

does not have one) that any donation given by

the end of the month within any one of our

three parishes will be matched dollar for dollar

by their organization, up to $5,000. Thank

you, CFL!

If you would like to give to assist with the relief

efforts going on, please place your donation in an

envelope clearly marked “Oklahoma Relief Effort”

and place it in the regular collection. We will collect

all the offerings and at the end of the month,

write one check to Catholic Financial Life to be

matched by them. They will in turn send the proceeds

to Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City to be used

in assistance of those in need.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact

your parish office. In the meantime, thanks for

reaching out to those in need!

“Fortnight For Freedom”

Once again the bishops are declaring the fourteen

days leading up to our 4 TH of July as days of

prayer. Our government mandated health care

proposal still has not made an exemption for

those who believe forcing employers to provide

coverage for employees to have contraception,

sterilization, and abortions goes against Catholic

teachings. This violates our First Amendment

Constitutional rights.

Our prayer started June 21 st at SS Peter and Paul

in Kiel at 3:00 pm and will continue daily at 3:00

pm, including Sundays, until July 3rd. We pray the

Divine Mercy Chaplet prayer and the “Prayer for

Religious Liberty.” On Thursday July 4 th , we invite

anyone to join us as we travel together or car-pool

as we travel to St Francis’ Cathedral to attend

Mass with Bishop Ricken. We pray by God’s grace

you will join us.

will be encouraged to vote on their way in and out of Mass

parish office with an email address it has been sent to you via

email. Other schedules can be found in the back of church,

We welcome new volunteers! If you’d like to become involved

Parish Fiscal Year Ending

We will be closing the books for the 2012-2013 parish

fiscal year at 10 am on Friday, June 28. If you have not made

a financial contribution yet, you have until that date. Any

contributions made after that time, including those in the

weekend collection, will be applied to the 2013-2014 parish

fiscal year. If you have any questions about your contributions

to date, contact the office. Thank you to all who support our

parish with their stewardship of prayer, service and treasure.

Homebound Ministry

Jesus comes to us in many different ways. As Catholic Christians

we place a great value on receiving Him through the Eucharist.

But, for varied reasons some of our community are not able

to join us at weekend Mass due to illness or other restrictions. If

you feel Jesus calling you to help bring Him to others, please

call our parish office at 894-3553 or Shirley Arndt at 894-

2695. Listen to Him.

Scrip News

Did you know that Vogel Chevrolet participates in the $crip

program with a 5% discount on services from them?

(EXCLUDING the purchase of a new or used vehicle.) When

you have work done at Vogel’s, include the exact amount of

your bill on the scrip order form and pay for your scrip order as

usual. (include a copy of the bill if possible) Then we’ll subtract

the discounted amount and issue a check payable to Vogel’s.

School is out for the summer, and summer means you’re often

on the go. Whether you’re heading to and from work, driving

the kids to baseball practice or band camp, or taking off on a

family road trip, you’re on the road a lot. Those gas purchases

can add up. Keep $crip handy in your vehicles so you’ll always

be ready to fill up!

The products that you use clean your home may actually be harmful for the earth, containing damaging

chemicals and upsetting the ecological balance. Seek “green” cleaning products that are biodegradable and

designed with the earth in mind.

If all education is meant to be a doorway

to knowledge and a career, a Catholic

education can be a gateway to a new

and full life. That certainly was true for

me. My eight years at Ss. Peter & Paul

Catholic School, and four years at St.

Gregory High School in St. Nazianz,

showed me the relationship between

what I learned in my academic life and

how I experienced God in my spiritual life. It was that

foundation that opened me to consider a vocation as a

woman religious, and four additional years at Alverno College

and Mount Mary University. Although I chose health care

rather than education as my ministry in the School Sister

of St. Francis community, each encounter with God’s people

is, for me, an opportunity to share the riches of an education

centered in my faith, begun so many years ago at Ss.

Peter & Paul. Sister Joneen Keuler, SSSF

Some of you may have noticed we had the fire department here

at Holy Rosary last week. The plug on a vacuum started on fire.

The fire stopped when it was unplugged but we called the fire

department to make sure it was completely out. We want to

say a huge “Thank You” to Craig Hickey and Chris Schirmer

for their quick response to minimize the damage to just the

vacuum plug and outlet.
