Celebrating a Remarkable Milestone!

March 9, 2015

Fr. Walter Schnarr, CR - 78 years of Ordained Priesthood! Not only did Fr. Walter Schnarr, CR celebrate his 103rd birthday last December, but he will celebrate his 78th anniversary of ordained priesthood on Saturday, March 14th!

Along with many years of faithful service to the mission of the Congregation teaching and working with finances, Fr. Walter has had a deep love of gardening. From tomatoes to roses he enjoyed working in the rich soil and watching his efforts flourish. For a number of years each fall he would plant amaryllis bulbs and come the cold, dark days of winter, he would share their beautiful blooms brightening everyone’s day.  He enjoyed the outdoors, in particular fishing and loved the “thrill” of landing “that big one”!


Fr. Walter, your long life of service to God has been a joyful witness to all.  God, who is ever faithful to promises has blessed us with your many years of ministry. May God’s goodness and kindness be with you on this special day and always!
