Fr. Don Czapla

This is a homecoming for Father Czapla.  A native of Nebraska, as a student Father Czapla studied at Iowa State and after graduation entered seminary formation for the Archdiocese of Dubuque from St. Cecilia’s parish.  Ordained on May 31, 2003 (coincidently the same date I was ordained a “few” years before!) Father Czapla celebrated  his Mass of Thanksgiving here.  Prior to his transfer to St. Matthew’s last year he previously served as pastor of the former St. Henry Church (now St. Francis of Assisi).  Father Don speaks Spanish which will be a great gift to our Hispanic community.
