Dear St. Lawrence Newman Center Community,
Fr. Jake Anderson has been assigned as the next priest to serve the St. Lawrence Newman Center faith community. He is a member of the Companions of Christ, the same community that I am a member. I have known him for many years and he was the priest I recommended to the bishops as a great fit for this spiritual family. Fr. Jake Anderson has served as a priest at St. Michael in Stillwater and at the Newman Center at the University of Nebraska in Omaha.
He is a man of deep prayer and integrity. Although I will miss all of you, I am excited for what the Lord will do at St. Lawrence Catholic Church and Newman Center with Fr. Jake Anderson walking with you.
Be assured of my prayers for all of you.
Fr. Jon Vander Ploeg
