To the Holy People of St. John:
After a lot of prayer and thought, I have informed the Archbishop that I plan to retire June 30, 2019. I am giving you all a formal notice that my 36 years of work at St. John will come to an end this summer.
The decision to retire has been fueled by the fact that I want and need to spend the next few years with Bill. Some of you know that he has buried three brothers in the last couple years. He has a fourth brother currently in very serious health. I just woke up one day and said I don’t want to wait so long and regret that I didn’t retire sooner. So, there you have it!
I feel I have done what God called me to do as the PLC since 2002. I am at peace with my decision and confident that God is calling someone else to lead. The Archbishop is the one to appoint the next leader. That information will not be forthcoming for awhile.
I think St. John is one of the most vibrant and vital parishes in the Archdiocese. I thank you all for this vitality and vibrance as well as all that you have sacrificed and done for this parish. Bill and I plan to remain as members.
I remain yours in Christ,
Sue Schettler, PLC
