Message from Father Matt: After extensive conversation with Carl
Johnson, he has informed me of his decision to resign, effective at
the end of this month. I am grateful to him for his generous
acceptance of the challenge of inaugurating a new and much
needed position here at Cathedral. Carl has begun training to
become re-certified in the field of Emergency Medical Response
after discerning that that is where he would like to spend his early
retirement years. The search committee that worked 6 months ago
to fill this new position had consensus that there was an advantage
to bringing in an outside person to fill the role. While there is truth
to the premise, I have decided that there is also real potential to
promoting from within, and so I have asked Lynn Cartledge to be
our new Parish Manager. Lynn has exhibited significant
competence and dedication as Director of our Early Childhood
Center, and I look forward to her bringing those qualities to bear
more broadly in the Parish. May God bless Carl, Lynn, and our
parish in this time of transition!

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house
there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place
for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself.” Jn 14:1-3b
