Today we welcome two of our newest parishioners -- Sara and Rodney Lipking who live at 516 Stanley Avenue. Rodney grew up in the Darmstadt area and Sara is from the Wildeman family in St. Philip. They met when both of them worked at Royal Food Store. Rodney says it was his magnetic personality which at- tracted Sara. Sara thinks it was the Jeep he was driving. An out- sider will tell you that the warm sense of humor they share in common in the glue that bonds them together. Rodney is a lover of the great outdoors. He loves to fish and hunt deer and mush- rooms. Sara enjoys sharing in some of these activities with Rod- ney but she will tell you you doesn't have much patience for fishing. Sara and Rodney were married on July 2, 1988, at St. Philip. Currently Rodney works at Koch Originals making brass furniture and Sara works at Re- search Systems, a marketing re- search company. The biggest thing in their life now is that they are expecting their first child in February. Rodney is sure it will be a girl. Sara doesn't mind what it is, only that it will be a healthy child. She i s pre- pared, however. She's even brought Christmas presents for their child's first Christmas. Sara and Rodney like coming to St. Theresa. They find it a wel- coming and accepting place. They look forward to raising their family here. Welcome, Sara and Rodney and baby ?. We look forward to getting to know you better. The introductions are written by Father Gene Schroeder, pastor, and Barb Engelland, a member of the pastoral team. Engelland said when someone registers in the parish "we make an appointment to visit them and tell them about the parish. Then we find out about them." When information about the new parishioners is presented to the parish, "people recognize them and have a good response to them." Happy Birthday!
