May God bless you in a very special way on your 85th birthday. Reverend Father Raymond Valerio As a young man, surrounded by the love and nurturing of your parents and family, you listened to the ever present call of Jesus, as He beckoned you to become one of his disciples - a priest. We are ever grateful you answered, "Yes", and have been among us at St. Peter Cathedral, as a newly ordained priest and again now, as our Pastor. You provide spiritual guidance, teaching, leading, encouragement, celebration of the Holy Mass and are there for us whenever we need you. Congratulations on the celebration of 30 years of priesthood. (September 12, 2016) A d d Monsignor Michael Steber BY GREG GOSTOMSKI DIOCESE OF MARQUETTE In today's culture, the word ignorant does not sound a popular ring. It is generally confused or interchanged with stupid, or unintelligent. It also doesn't help that so many people grew up hearing Bugs Bunny say about many a cartoon character, "what an ignoramus." The word ignorant however, has nothing to do with intelligence but refers to lacking knowledge, training or information on a par- ticular topic. For example, someone might be ignorant of cultural norms in Thailand. They simply don't know them; they haven't learned about them. The spiritual work of mercy, "instruct the ignorant" comes from this under- standing of ignorant. Teaching people about something. Since 2003 the Diocese of Marquette has, like all dioceses in the United States, offered programs to train employees and volunteers who work with youth to recognize the signs of potential abuse and of predators trying to gain access to children. These Protecting God's Chil- dren sessions have trained more than 4,000 adults in our parishes, missions and Catholic schools. Many of the evaluations have citied, "Thank you! I had never thought of these things before". Anglea Ellis, a facilitator for the Holy Name of Mary Vicariate, remembers years ago when she began leading the live sessions "there was some push back and confusion." People would ask, "Why is the diocese doing this," or state, "I'm not a threat to anyone." After the sessions however, Ellis found that people were glad they attended, and some participants used the word "grateful" in describing their feelings toward keeping children safe. Deb Chaltry, a facil- itator for the St. John Neumann Vicariate, has heard after almost every session people state "the information is use- ful." Chaltry shared that in addition to protecting children and youth, the training protects adults by raising awareness of situations to avoid, like being alone with a child. Chaltry also com- mented on how she is continually impressed with the volunteers at her sessions. They will- ingly come to the trainings at night, sometimes in bad weather, all to help protect our youth. The diocese currently has 15 facilitators who lead sessions in all vicariates of the diocese. All offer their time helping protect youth and living the spiritual works of mercy. Mercy Corner: Safe environment program instructs the ignorant
