The parishioners at St. Agnes were just getting to know Father Randall Kasel. Now we learn Father Kasel will become Parochial Administrator of St. Charles in Bayport, MN, on July 2. I haven't heard who is going to replace him at St. Agnes.
Father Kasel is a wonderful priest, strongly reminiscent of his predecessor. I didn't even have the chance to get to know him, other than in the confessional. I will miss his, "God loves you VERY much," as he gave absolution. St. Charles is getting a good priest and our prayers go with him. You will be missed, Father.
