The Rural Life Commission serves the mission of the Church by promoting the care of God's creation and the welfare of the people who depend on it.
The Salina Diocese Rural Life Commission welcomes two new members. Bishop Edward J. Weisenburger recently appointed two new members to the Rural Life Commission of the Diocese of Salina.
Mr. Nick Levendofsky of Courtland, KS, was appointed to the Commission. Mr. Levendofsky has participated in an international young farmers workshop in Europe and made a slide presentation on the workshop at the Rural Life Day last August in Cawker City. His presentation was well received as was his enthusiasm for farming and Catholic Rural Life. Mr. Levendofsky will be a welcomed addition to the Commission.
Bishop Weisenburger also recommended to the Commission and later made the appointment of Reverend Brian Lager to the Rural Life Commission of the Diocese of Salina. Father Lager grew up on a farm near Angelus, KS, and wrote a dissertation on Catholic Rural Life while in the seminary at St John Vianney Seminary in Denver, CO. Father Lager has attended most of the Rural Life Commission events since his ordination in 2012. His knowledge and rural life background will be invaluable additions to the Rural Life Commission.
Welcome to both of our new members. May God Bless you both. St Isidore pray for us.
