Paffel marks 10 years as area pastor
It has been 10 years since the Rev. Greg Paffel, the newly installed pastor of St. Paul’s Church in Sauk Centre, rode into town on his orange Honda Goldwing motorcycle. That motorcycle and its rider have since become familiar sights in the community, and while Paffel has had to navigate difficult times for the area’s Catholic churches, he maintains his joyful optimism as he ministers to parishioners and learns from them as they learn from him.
