Happy birthday and many more …

JACKSON – Bishop Joseph Kopacz celebrated a “big” birthday with staff at the chancery office on Wednesday, Sept. 16.
What he loves about being a Bishop in the diocese is “the opportunity to serve with many dedicated disciples, lay and ordained, throughout most of this amazing state in a variety of ministries.”
Bishop Kopacz has missed not being able to make as many pastoral visits during the ebb and flow of the pandemic, but in the meantime he has been doing more reading, cooking, cleaning and organizing at his home in NE Jackson. He also loves spending time with his 13 1/2 year old Labrador and, of course, an occasional round of golf!
Bishop Kopacz, we wish you abundant birthday blessings!
