Ann & Quenton Czuba
announced as Honorary Chairs of the 2017 Madeleine Auction

The Czuba FamilyThis year’s Honorary Chairs, Ann and Quenton Czuba, are familiar faces to generations at The Madeleine. You may have seen Ann cleaning up pews after Mass, or laughed at one of Quenton’s jokes.
But what you may not know about the Czubas is just how deeply committed they are to living their faith—through small acts of service and large acts of love.
As Father Mike says, “They preach with their lives.”
The Czubas joined The Madeleine in 1968 and sent each of their five children to The Madeleine School. Paying tuition with one salary wasn’t easy, but it was a sacrifice Ann and Quenton happily made. They saw Catholic education as an important part of raising their children to live their Catholic faith.
Their daughter Mary says, “It was a gift they gave us. The best gift I’ve ever gotten.”
They have worshiped during the tenures of five priests at The Madeleine—married here under Fr. Van der Zanden, who was followed by Fr. Campbell, Fr. Sirianni, Fr. Painter and now, Fr. Mike.
And through it all, they have remained as humble servants to our parish and school community. Not for glory, not for recognition, but out of service, out of commitment, out of love of their church and their community.
Ann was one of the original Hot Dog Lunch ladies in the 1960s...back when lunch was served in the Old Church, then later in the classrooms, and when the moms baked homemade cupcakes for dessert.
The Czubas have always looked for ways to help The Madeleine community. Quenton is active in the Knights of Columbus and St. Vincent de Paul; Ann has led the parish folk singing group and is a member of the Altar Society. Following revelations of child sexual abuse by some Catholic clergy, in a very public show of atonement, Ann and Quenton made 500 burlap “penance patches” to symbolize the sack cloth and ashes historically used in repentance, and distributed them during Lent. Ann also wrote letters to nearly 200 bishops requesting a Year of Atonement.
Please join us in honoring and thanking Ann and Quenton Czuba for their years of humble service to our community, and their commitment to children and Catholic education that makes The Madeleine what it is today.
