www.upcatholic.org THE U.P. CATHOLIC CATHOLIC SERVICE AWARD August 19, 2016 9 Happy Golden Jubilee Father Ted Brodeur! FATHER TED, We join with countless others (and the Choirs of Angels) in congratulating you on 50 years of Priestly service. We especially ask for God's Blessings upon you for the 26 years you spent here with us at the HOLY NAME OF MARY PARISH & SACRED HEART OF JESUS MISSION. Baraga. He currently serves as a deacon for the three parishes in the community - Most Holy Name of Jesus/St. Kateri Tekakwitha Assinins; St. Ann, Baraga; Sacred Heart of Jesus, LAnse. Deacon Cadeau is involved in several dif- ferent aspects of the Baraga County Catholic Community and the diocese as a whole, such as member of the Bishop Baraga Association, the Bishop Baraga Shrine Foundation, the Baraga County Clergy association, Chap- lain for Baraga County Memorial Hospital Hospice, works significantly with the Native American community and is a fourth degree Knight of Columbus, just to name a few. Tony Angle, administrator for the Baraga County Catholic Community stated, We are blessed to have Deacon John in our Catholic community. His outreach touches someone every day in some special way. He is the epitome of Catholic service, mercy and grace. I thank God often in my prayers for sharing Deacon John with the Baraga County Catho- lic Community. He has also played an integral part in the charismatic prayer group in the community, which he served as the leader for more than 20 years. Deacon Cadeaus primary ministry outside of his duties at the parishes is with the St. Vincent de Paul Sacred Heart Confer- ence. Since 2005 he has been the spiritual advisor to the Sacred Heart Conference. He was also the driving force in helping the SVDP find a new site for its food pantry in the community. Father Litzner presented Deacon Cadeau with the commemorative medallion on July 17 at The Most Holy Name of Jesus/St. Kateri Tekakwitha Mission. In the words of his pastor, Father Litzner, Ive seldom met anyone who gives so gen- erously of his very self. He not only gives of time, talent and treasure, he gives consis- tently of his very self his passion, his com- passion, his energy. I once asked him what his secret is. He answered that its nothing in comparison to what Jesus has given to me. Thats the secret. In his heart and mind, all his giving is done in gratitude to what Jesus has done (and continues to do) for him.
