St Stephen's New Pastor is Msgr. Daniel Ganshert.
A short Bio of Monsignor Daniel Ganshert
Growing up the youngest of four in Gratiot, WI, I went to grade school there and high school in
the seminary at Milwaukee and Madison. Ordained in 1974 from St. Francis Seminary, Milwaukee,
I have served in various parishes and ministries in the Diocese of Madison.
My sister lives in Monona and my brother in Stoughton. Our sister, Julie Ann, died in 2015, our
dad in 1987 and our mother in 1990. I have seven nieces and nephews and one grand nephew.
Golfing, reading, biking and being with family and friends are some of the things that add to the
fun of it all. The adventure of priesthood has been a blessed life for me and I am looking forward
to sharing it with all of you at St. Stephen’s in Clinton.
See you soon and God bless you!
Monsignor Dan's Weekly Message
What a warm welcome I have enjoyed from all of you here at St. Stephen’s. Thank you sincerely for making this newcomer feel right at home. Fr. Mike Resop had picked up where Fr. Bill Connell left off in shepherding this vital parish community over these many months. Thank you, Fr. Mike, for your generous, caring and enthusiastic gift of leadership at an important time for St. Stephen’s. We will not forget you. Fr. Connell and I started out together at St. James Parish, Madison, when he was a deacon and I was newly ordained. We have known one another’s families, and it gives me a real sense of companionship to follow Fr. Bill as pastor here. He sends his greetings always to you when I see him. My email is a helpful resource to me, and I hope it will be to you, as well, along with contacting me, personally, anytime you see me and by phone if I can be of service to you. Let me know if you want your home blessed, need to talk, would like some prayers for you and others. I am looking forward to getting to know you. So happy to be here.
Let us pray for one another.
OLA HOSPITAL VISITS
We do want to know when you are in the hospital. If you or your family member is a patient at Beloit Memorial Hospital and you wish a visit from a priest or parish member (with the Eucharist), you MUST specifically tell the hospital staff to list you as a member of St. Stephens every time you are admitted. Privacy laws prohibit the hospital from doing so without your permission. If you are in another area hospital, please call St. Stephen’s Parish Office (676-2241) or have the hospital staff notify us if you wish a visit. Thank you.

Calling all knitters and those who crochet. We are once again sponsoring a hat collection for kids’ hats that will be given out at the Santa party in December.

If you need yarn or a pattern, please call me – a lot was donated last year. Jean Nosek, 815-389-3259 or email email@example.com. Let’s keep those kiddos warm this winter!
