Big River pastor marks 50th year since ordination
RIVER FALLS—Fr. Bill Matzek of St. Mary’s at Big River Catholic Church advises telling the truth. Truth is, Matzek celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination as a priest in late May. He said Wednesday there was a special mass at the church and a reception at the adjacent school hall, complete with a fellowship time and a meal.
“I saw people I hadn’t seen in years,” he said.
