Benedictine priests succeeded Father Kundek in caring for the parish at Ferdinand, for more than a century, from 1852 until Father Firmus Dick was the first diocesan priest in this cen- tury to serve as pastor (1964-77}. He was succeeded by co-pastors Father Sylvester Schroeder and Father Kenneth Graehler. In 1980, Father John Kane was assigned as co-pastor, replacing Father Graehler. The Sisters of Providence came to Ferdinand to teach school, in 1862. When they told the pastor in 1867 they would not return, Father Chrysostom Foffa, O.S.B., appealed to St. Walburg Benedictine Convent fin Covington, Ky., to start a new institution at Ferdinand.

We have inherited from them a strong faith in the Catholic Church, a spirit of hard work, pride in the community, strong familie ties, and concern for one another. We build on this foundation today. "We have a deep apprecia- tion of the Mass and are work- ing to enrich our celebration of it. There is a willingness to cooperate and work in parish activities. We care for the parish buildings and grounds with pride. There is great care and concern for the sick, griev- ing, and distressed. "As God'speople we hope to strengthen our unity as a parish, contiriue to encourage strong family life, grow in ap- preciation of each individual, and offer a warm respect and acceptance to those of different faith backgrounds among us."
