Fr. Angelo Van der Putten is an energetic and a passionate pastor who instills and fosters the traditions of the church and most of all the family. His traditional manners are visible in his reverence to the Mass and how he manages and loves the parish.
Other priests who have served our parish are: Fathers Ferguson, Semler, Picus, and McCambridge.
Father Peter Byrne was at the parish for the longest (5.5 years), and he acted as an on-call hospital chaplain for Hillcrest Medical Center in Tulsa and would travel a few hours south to administer to correctional facility inmates located in Stringtown, Oklahoma. Father Byrne is still very dear to everyone’s heart. He was dedicated to each member of the church. He initiated the St. Joseph Men’s Group to foster fatherhood and to promote family life. Fr. Angelo Van der Putten followed through and nurtured the group which today is one of strongest organizations within the parish.
