The Muenster parish held a farewell celebration for Fr. Paul Paproski, OSB, on Sunday afternoon July 12 at Saint Peter’s Abbey.
Fr. Paul Paproski has been pastor at the St. Peter’s parish in Muenster for five years.  Fr. Demetrius Wasylyniuk, OSB, was recently appointed the new pastor.

The celebration honouring Fr. Paul included a ride to the parish for morning Mass in a special convertible car and a come-and-go tea in the afternoon. The car was manufactured in 1963, the same year that Fr. Paul was born.
