Confirmed reports

In the bishops' column in the latest Milwaukee Catholic Herald, Bishop Sklba reflects on this latest Confirmation season.
It might be helpful to explain to candidates why weekly attendance at Mass is a perfect experience of everything of importance in Catholic spirituality.
In the Year of Priests supplement to that same issue, an article on priests' jubiliees recounts Fr. Gerald B. Hauser's 65 years.
Fr. Hauser began his priestly ministry as a third assistant curate at St. Leo, Milwaukee, 1945-1946 where he recalled that 6,000 people attended Sunday Masses, 5:30 a.m. to noon.
Almost makes one wonder how they explained weekly attendance at Mass to get that result.
