1 ~- HORN Continued from Page 11 the altar of the Chair of St. Peter in Stl Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. "It was a beautiful and powerful celebration to share with my family and friends," he recalled. After ordi- nation he served at Mass, preached on occasion, took communion to the homebound and and continued spending time out among the people of Rome. - After he completed his studies in Rome, Fr. Mark returned to South Dakota where his journey to the priesthood had started. On July 2, 2016, he was ordained to the priest- hood by Bishop Robert Gruss at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Rapid City. A West River parish priest serv- ing in the Black Hills He is currently serving par- ishes in the Black Hills. Monsignor Michael Woster is the pastor of the churches where Ft. Mark serves as the parochial vicar. "Msgr. Woster has been a priest for 33 years. It's great to have him as a mentor-father to be able to walk me through these new experiences." Gaining more than giving up Like other Catholic priests, Fr. Mark is asked how it feels to give up so much, like getting married and having kids. This is the same - question he asked back in Burke in the summer of 2006, and he knows the answer. "I feel like I've given up so little and gained so much more, because you get such a huge fam- ily when you become a priest. Sure, you make a promise of celibacy, but that opens you up to a greater spiri- tual fatherhood. When people call me Father Mark, I recognize that. People older than me call me Fr. Mark. Little kids call me Fr. Mark and give me hugs after Mass." "They open up to me, not be- cause of who Mark Horn is, but because of who Jesus Christ in his priesthood is, and they recognize Jesus Christ in the priest, and they see a spiritual father. I've done nothing to deserve this, but, as St Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:10, 'By the grace of God, I am what I am.'" "I feel like I have the vastest family. We have the parishes of Spearfish, Belle Fourche and New- ell and also the Newman Center and these are large parishes. I joke with people that at times I feel like an ab- sent father, because I'm always run- ning to the next thing. I feel what parents feel like when they have a lot of kids and some kids feel left out, and they say, 'No, actually I love you just as much as I love the other one.'" Fr. Mark lives in the city now, but he still loves the outdoors and nature. He's not so busy that he can't find time for the occasional trip to the Black Hills slopes for skiing. He hasn't lost his love of basketball. He attends BHSU basketball games. He's a member of Men in Black, the priests' basketball team that oc- casionally plays to raises money for seminarians. And he's always ready for a pick up game. ROG'S ROD Continued from Page 7 Lord Grizzly, arguably the best-told story of Hugh Glass, my strongest connection is a love affair with the Grand River. Hugh Glass's griz- zly attack took place on the Grand River south of l_,emmon, SD near Shade Hill. For the past 47 years, I have hunted deer, coyotes, and sharp- tail grouse along the Grand not too far from the location of the Glass- grizzly attack. I couldn't begin to count the times I've imagined see- ing Glass's head protruding above a limb as it washed downstream in the current. I've also picked up stone arrow and spear points along the Grand I've attributed to the Ree or Arikara ..... Glass's adversaries. It appeared to me that the pro- ducers of the film had mixed objec- tives. The weapons, dress, and Na- tive American language as well as the native actors were authentic in my opinion. Two particular scenes - the wolf pack taking down a buf- falo, as well as the grizzly bear at- tack scene, were fantastic! Were they computer generated? I don't know. Then accuracy is all but forgot- ten. The actual grizzly attack hap- pened in the summer. The film por- trayed a winter scene. There are no stark mountains south of Lemmon. There were in this movie. Putting these aside, I enjoyed the movie. See you next week.

Dennis Daugaard has signed Senate Bill 114, the USS South Dakota bill, into law. The bill appropriates $100,000 to the South Dakota Department of Military to support the USS South Dakota (SSN-790) Commissioning Committee's activities. The Com- mittee will be raising additional funds from the private sector. The Virginia-class submarine is under construction and is expected to be completed in August of 2018. It will be the first submarine to bear the name USS South Dakota. In the twentieth century, two naval battleships were named after the state: the USS South Dakota (ACR-9) commissioned in 1908 and the USS South Dakota (BB-57) commissioned in 1942.
