St. Ann’s Budnar to share Central America pilgrimage experience

Father Randy Budnar of St. Ann Catholic Parish recently returned from a two-week pilgrimage to El Salvador and Guatemala to learn about modern martyrs. 

He joined a group of 20 priests, deacons and religious brothers from throughout the United States on a retreat to the Central American countries, which had been in civil war. 

“I expected to be inspired,” Budnar wrote in an email to the Hub. “What I did not expect was that at every place we went where the martyrs lived and/or died we had a presentation by someone who knew them: either a family member, or a friend, or a co-worker or a parishioner.”

He said that they talked about the martyrs “with love in their voices and passion in their hearts.”

The most well-known of the martyrs is Bishop Oscar Romero, who will soon be beatified under Pope Frances. The group was able to meet the 89-year-old vicar general, who worked very closely with the bishop.

Diabetes awareness events at Stoughton Hospital March 24

According to the Center for Disease Control, almost 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, or 9.3 percent of the population. However, about a quarter of those people are unaware they have the disease. The earlier diabetes is detected, the easier it is to control.

Stoughton Hospital is hosting a diabetes awareness day on March 24, sponsored by the Stoughton Lioness Club. That same day, the hospital will also begin its “Healthy Living with Diabetes” class.

Diabetes Alert Day

A Diabetes Alert Day event will be held at Stoughton Hospital from 8 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, March 24.

Stoughton Lions and Lionesses will be in the lobby handing out brochures with information about diabetes, which is increasing by large numbers yearly. It is a one-day “wake-up call” asking the public to take the diabetes risk test.
