WHERE: St. Therese’s Nursing Home
8000 Bass Lake Road, New Hope, MN 55428

WHEN: Sunday June 10, 2007 – 2:00 p.m. in the Chapel

Come join Fr. Tim Vakoc and his family as they celebrate the 15th anniversary of Fr. Tim’s ordination. In addition, those gathered will give thanks for the slow, but steady, progress Fr. Tim has made on his road to recovery. This celebratory Mass will commemorate both his ordination, which occurred on May 29, 1992, and his wounding in Iraq, which he sustained on May 29, 2004.

Praise and kudos to God and his family for "keeping the faith" and standing by Father Tim to encourage his rehab when the VA (so typically) wanted to warehouse him away like a vegetable. ETERNAL SHAME to a government and nation which discards its wounded veterans like trash.
