Conferral of Papal Honours at St Peter Cathedral, Marquette

"If one part (of the body) is honoured, all the parts share its joy."
This was the sentiment taken from St Paul's first letter to the Corinthians and shared by Bishop Alexander Sample with all who were gathered at the Cathedral yesterday for Solemn Vespers during which took place the conferral of the papal honours of Knight Commander and Dame of the Order of St Gregory the Great upon Robert and Barbara Stebler and Prelate of Honour upon Monsignor Michael Steber, pastor of the Cathedral parish.

 With Jocelyn Basse, director of the Cathedral children's choir.

With Cassie Cram and Matthew Anderson.

With Father Tim Ekaitis, former Associate Pastor of the Cathedral and currently Pastor at Norway, and Dustin Katona, youth ministry co-ordinator.

 Msgr Steber with his brother Tom and sister-in-law Linda.

With the first lady of the diocese, Mrs Joyce Sample, the Bishop's mother.

That reading from St Paul also refers to the suffering of one part of the body causing all the parts to suffer with it. Msgr Steber's mother's funeral took place just last Monday. All joined in offering their prayers for the repose of her soul.
