Celebrating a singular half-century of service to man and God



The Rev. Howard Johnson reflected on some milestones of his unique life Tuesday, Aug. 19, as he celebrated the 60th anniversary of his ordination as a Roman Catholic priest. Among attendees at the Mass and dinner, held at his Lake Ellen home, Cascade, were Daughters of Isabella from throughout Sheboygan County. Johnson was chaplain of the group for more than 45 years. From 1960-62, he served as chaplain at the Wisconsin School for Boys in Waukesha. Residents and staff of that facility moved to the Kettle Moraine Boys’ School in the town of Mitchell in 1962. Johnson was chaplain there from 1962-75 and continued his service there when the school was transformed into the Kettle Moraine Correctional Institution in 1975. He retired as chaplain in 1989. Among his other varied assignments during his tenure, he served as associate pastor of St. John the Baptist Parish, Plymouth, from 1957-60 and as pastor of St. Mary’s Parish (now Blessed Trinity Parish), Sheboygan Falls, from 1992-95.
