Bishop Kettler will bless altar built by father in memory of his late daughter
By Kristi Anderson
On March 7, 2014, Allen and Doris Schaefer did something no parents should ever have to do. They said goodbye to their daughter, Rhonda Grotkin, who lost her battle with brain cancer at age 52.
On June 28, Bishop Donald Kettler will travel to the Schaefers’ home parish of SS. Peter and Paul in Richmond, where he will bless a brand new altar that Allen
built in Rhonda’s memory at the 10:30 a.m. Mass.
“Rhonda was a really giving person,” Doris said. “Church was very important to her. She was always doing things for other people.”
