Across the River
A career of the cloth
Congratulations to Father Edward Zenkel. He was feted at St. Lucy’s for his many years as a priest. Father Zenkel was an integral part of St. Lucy’s and St. Thomas Aquinas for many years.
St. Thomas Aquinas church was completely renovated under Father Zenkel’s direction and coordination many years ago and it resulted in the beautiful church that many of us attend and enjoy every Wednesday and Friday morning. St. Thomas us also used for weddings and funerals and some holy days.
I am now, finally, well after experiencing a infection from a rose bush thorn. My left hand was affected-I was in extreme pain for many days.
After a trip to the emergency room at Noyes Hospital and many trips to my doctors and many different medications, I became pain-free on June 14th (I was affected for 34 days I welcomed the drug, predinisone, which ended my pain).
Friday, June 15 was my birthday (I must decline to reveal my age!). My niece, Patti Cole invited me to the dinner at the Glen Iris Inn. Both Betty Brocks (my sister-in-law), Jackie Schlagater, and her daughter, Jessica, and Lisa Wybron all came along and helped me to celebrate. Everyone in the restaurant sang happy birthday to me (I was a little embarrassed). It was a great party-the food was wonderful and I received many great gifts.
I look forward to returning to church and I thank everything for the birthday and get well cards.
