Observer mourns the loss of Fr. Campion of Monroe, Founder of the Apostolate to the Handicapped

Click on the post for the article in the Wisconsin State Journal.

Fr. Campion was a legend in Southern Wisconsin for his outreach effort to the handicapped. He redefined the word "Champion."

I had the pleasure of meeting him once at the end of a road race to raise money for the handicapped many years ago, and in the dead of winter, as he stood by the finish line, while all the fast runners were already in the warm bar, he chanted to the last runners, "Come on Champions....".

May he rest in peace.
