Joe Thompson

CCD teacher, Altar Server, Sacristan and EMHC Ministries
4 th Degree Grand Knight

Joe Thompson came to St. Anthony Parish in 1958 after several years in the
U.S. Army. While in the Army Joe was stationed in Guam where he became a
Chaplain’s Assistant. It was his job to answer phones for Father John Kraka, drive
him to various posts for Mass and then act as Altar Server. While with Fr. Kraka
Joe traveled to several islands to serve Mass, including Tinian which was a leper
colony at the time.
Here at St. Anthony’s Joe has been a CCD teacher, Altar Server, Sacristan for
weekday Mass, and an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. As a member
of the Knights of Columbus Joe rose to the rank of 4 th Degree Grand Knight.
We thank Joe for a lifetime of ministry in the Catholic Church and for being so
generous with his time and talents here at St. Anthony.
