Monsignor Charles B. Johnson passed into eternal rest on Thursday, September 22, 2011. He was 78 years old. Up until his death, Monsignor Johnson was serving as the Director of the Mission Office of the Archdiocese of Hartford. 25 years ago, Monsignor Johnson was appointed Rector of our own Cathedral Parish; a position he held for 5 years, from 1986 – 1991. Long time parishioners will recall Monsignor Johnson with fondness as a dedicated servant of the Church.
We are forever thankful to God for the devotion of Monsignor Johnson, and all of our dedicated priests. Remember Monsignor Johnson in your prayers this week.
I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7).
