Father Tony & Our Lady of Consolation
You sure know how to celebrate and honor a new priest and his family!
Patty and I, Matt and the rest of the family were overcome with the outpouring of excitement, joy and love from so many parishioners of Our Lady of Consolation.
Matt was really excited about the chance to say a “First Mass” in the parish he grew up in, and he really felt the love, from old school buddies to people he had never met but just wanted to shake his hand. He loved the Day! You saw his face beaming with joy! He said he never hug so many people in his life!Read more……
It was so good for Patty and I to see and share this moment with people that have played and still play such important part of our life. The enthusiasm and support that Father Tony showed for Matt’s ordination and first Mass was “Christian love and service” at its best. Father Tony exudes Christ’s love for all of us…a great example. The support, guidance, help and execution of the blessed Mass and gathering afterwards by the great OLC staff and volunteers was over the top. Lots of beautiful cake…. You help us send Matt off fully inspired by your love to serve others as a Catholic priest. I deeply thank Our Dear Lord for blessing the world with all of you. Thank you Our Lady of Consolation. Thank you so much Father Tony. With love for all, Steve and Patty Fase Katy, Jenny, Steve, Matt and MaryFr. Matt Fase’s
Ordination at Notre Dame on April 11, 2015
This program IS NOT to raise more money for our parish. The purpose is to teach children the joy of helping others and giving to God out of gratitude for all that God has given to them.
Beginning the weekend of March 1st, children will be invited to come to the altar to share their gift.

Today we celebrate the greatest gift of grace in our faith; the Eucharistic presence. The beauty of the sacrament can be seen in the reality of natural growth, lower things being elevated to greater realities. I found this insight very helpful in understanding the why of the Eucharist. As Arch-Bishop Fulton Sheen observes, ‘everything in… Read more

Humility is one measure of the spiritual life. Psychologically we have so much going on that often I think we forget the simple acts that can heal us. To see true humility in action we ask this question; how do I approach the sacrament of confession? From my own experience, not as the confessor, I… Read more
