HI EVERYONE! IT’S A BLESSING TO BE BACK!
I’m Fr. Craig Collison, your new pastor. I come to you after 12
wonderful years at Sacred Heart in Sioux City. In August of
1979, I arrived at St. Lawrence with one whole year of
experience under my belt and looking forward to joining
Fr. McCarty, Fr. Hughes, and becoming part of the Kuemper
family for the first time. Thirty six years later, I feel like I’ve
come full circle in returning now as your pastor. I thank the
Lord, too, for the 10 years I had at Kuemper and St. Mary’s
in Willey from 1994-2003. Of my 37 years in the priesthood,
13 of them have been in Carroll County, and now I am
looking forward to many more. Thanks so much to
everyone who has been so wonderful in welcoming me back
to St. Lawrence and Carroll. I look forward to many
wonderful years of walking the journey of faith with you.
Bless you all.
