After 11 years as a pastor for two Door County parishes, Father Carl Schmitt will be leaving the Sturgeon Bay area to serve at the Holy Spirit Parish in Kimberly and Darboy starting on July 1. Ordained as a priest in 2005, Fr. Schmitt was assigned to Corpus Christi Church and Holy Name of Mary Church in Maplewood in 2008 after being an associate pastor in Oshkosh for three years. He shares what he will miss most about his time in Sturgeon Bay and his parishioners.
A celebration of Fr. Schmitt’s time in Sturgeon Bay will be held after the 10:30 mass this Sunday morning in Corpus Christi Social Hall. Fr. Ryan Krueger who was at Good Shepherd Parish in Chilton will be the new pastor for Corpus Christi Parish and Holy Name of Mary Church in Maplewood.
