LETTER FROM FATHER FRANK – DECEMBER 8, 2019


Dear families of St. Michael Parish:

Yesterday morning the Orland Park Police charged Fr. Paul Burak, our retired pastor in the December 4 accident that took the life of Ms. Margaret (Rone) Leja and injured Mrs. Kosteck – both teachers at St. Michael School.

I know that this news is disturbing and will surface many emotions. Grief, anger and confusion are dominating our thoughts. This is a truly difficult time for our parish community as we continue to grieve the loss of Ms. Leja and injury to Mrs. Kosteck and to make sense of what has happened.

I want to assure you that we have and will continue to cooperate with the Orland Park Police Department as they complete their investigation. We are grateful to the Orland Park Police department for the completely professional manner in which they have conducted this process. Other than that shared by the police and State’s Attorney, we have no further information.

I am grateful for the outpouring of prayers and support from the greater Orland Park community. Both public and Catholic schools have sent counselors to be with our students and faculty. Local pastors have called to express their prayers and many Catholic Churches in the Archdiocese are praying the Prayer to St. Michael for us at Mass this weekend.

I offer my heartfelt condolences, support and prayers to the grieving families and to all who are affected by this tragedy.

I ask for your prayers today for our parish St. Michael as we seek God’s healing and peace. Only the Light of Christ can lead us out of this time of darkness. Let us turn to him and ask for healing and peace.

In His Light.
Fr. Frank A. Kurucz – Pastor of St. Michael Parish
