For the past five decades Fr. David Baltz has faithfully lived the life of a Comboni Missionary, sharing the Gospel throughout Uganda and the United States. This summer, Fr. Baltz will mark the 50th anniversary of his ordination with several celebrations.
In July, Fr. Baltz will celebrate his anniversary with family and friends with a Mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Florissant, Missouri.
Then, on Friday, July 21, Comboni Missionaries from our missions throughout Africa will present a Mission Evening at the Comboni Mission Center in La Grange Park, Illinois. The evening will start with a Mass at 6 p.m. Following Mass, Fr. Baltz will share some stories from his time in Uganda and celebrate his ordination anniversary. All are invited to attend Mission Evening and celebrate with Fr. Baltz! Bring a side dish or beverage to share!
Finally, later in the year Fr. Baltz will travel to Italy with some friends from his ordination class to have yet another joyful celebration!
Thank you for your 50 years of love and devotion as a Comboni Missionary Fr. Baltz. We wish you many more years of happiness serving in the missions.
