Tornado hits Stoughton
By Julianne Nornberg
Madison Catholic Herald
STOUGHTON -- A tornado that tore through the southern Wisconsin community of Stoughton the evening of August 18 has left extensive damage and homeless people in its wake.
One person was killed and at least three others were hospitalized. Approximately 80 homes were damaged in the Stoughton area, located about 10 miles southeast of Madison.
"It's a nightmare" that happened in just a few minutes, said Msgr. Gerard Healy, pastor of St. Ann Parish in Stoughton. Quite a few parishioners' homes have been damaged and some have been demolished, he said. At least two of the three people injured were also parishioners, he said. Full story ...
Collection looks to the future

|Hope for the Future: Help Them Today poster for seminarian education collection
By Tony Staley
Over the next month Catholics in northeast Wisconsin will be asked to help the ministerial needs of tomorrow by supporting the education of seminarians today.
The request comes through what may become an annual collection to educate seminarians.
Because of summer vacation schedules, parishes will have until Sept. 18 to conduct the Hope for the Future: Help Them Today collection, said Fr. Tom Long, diocesan director of vocations.
The diocese requires seminarians to pay for their own college education. The diocese then pays for major seminary (graduate school) at a cost of some $40,000 a year per seminarian - a total of $625,000 in 2005-06.
The diocese has paid for seminary education mainly with money earned from the sale of the former Sacred Heart Seminary in Oneida and donations for education of seminarians. But with increases in both the number of seminarians and the costs of seminary education, additional funding was needed, Fr. Long said. Full story ...
