Church of St. John of St. Paul
Rev. George Welzbacher
Tenth Pastor  2006 - Present

The Reverend George Welzbacher had been the pastor at St. Agnes in St. Paul for many years, a position which included running not only a parish but also an elementary and high school.  Father Welzbacher turned 78 in June 2006 but rather than finally taking a well-earned retirement, he instead asked for another assignment at a smaller parish. St. John's was a perfect fit.  Father Welzbacher was familiar with our parish after having served here on weekends and during vacations when his friend and former pastor, Father Leo Dolan, needed help.  So after a four-month sabbatical, Father Welzbacher became the tenth pastor of St. John's in October 2006.
