Bishop James R. Golka

A shepherd who keeps his flock close to his heart
July 9, 2021  |  By JEFF THOMAS

ROBERT GOLKA, AN ENGINEER BY TRADE, and his wife, Patricia, built their house in 1963. They had a 1-year-old, Ronald, and a newborn, John.

                In Grand Island, Neb., they built a classic rancher: three bedrooms, the kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor; two bedrooms in the basement — 1,350 square feet total. During the next three-plus decades in this tidy vessel, the Golkas raised 10 children. For a time under that roof there were Mom, Dad, six boys, four girls, and two bathrooms, one of which had a shower.

                “Mornings were interesting,” John said.

In March 17, 2020, I became aware of the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, I was not aware of the severity of it, nor the lives that would be lost. I did know that it was negatively affecting senior citizens, which was heartbreaking for me as a gerontologist. African- Americans were dying at a disproportionate rate from this terrible disease. I’m am a person living with a disability. What other effects would this have on me? Hindsight is 2020. Here are a few ways covid strengthened my faith as a Black Catholic:

By virtue of my job, I am one of a relatively few number of the 180,000 Catholics in the Diocese of Colorado Springs who gets to interact with our bishop on a regular basis. I take that familiarity for granted, forgetting that most people only see Bishop Sheridan in more formal settings which do not allow for the kind of interactions that build familiarity.

Life-Giving Wounds

One woman explains how a retreat helped her to heal from wounds caused by her parents’ divorce
June 18, 2021  |  

My parents divorced when I was 12. I believed that most people didn’t really struggle with their parents’ divorce, and that I was strange because it was still affecting my life in so many ways 38 years after the fact.

Last February, I was given the opportunity to attend a retreat with a ministry, Life-Giving Wounds, that the Archdiocese of Denver was thinking of bringing to Colorado. It was one of the most amazing and healing experiences of my life.
