Brother Donald Johanson, FSC, Visitor of the District of San Francisco New Orleans (SFNO), has announced one change and one addition to the District’s leadership team effective July 1, 2019.
Brother James Joost, FSC, Auxiliary Visitor for SFNO, will relocate from the Provincialate offices and Community at Mont La Salle in Napa, California, to the Saint Paul’s School Community and the Provincialate office in Covington, Louisiana.
Brother Nick Gonzalez, FSC, will step down as principal-president at Cathedral High School in El Paso, Texas and relocate to the Provincialate offices and Community at Mont La Salle in Napa, California, where he will assume duties as Assistant Visitor for SFNO.
In explaining the need for these changes, Brother Donald said, “the growth of formation activities and, more importantly, the need for more specialized accompaniment of Brothers, has called us to add another Brother to District leadership.”
With these changes, the duties previously handled solely by Brother James will now be divided between him and Brother Nick. As Assistant Visitor, Brother Nick will not have the additional canonical responsibilities required of an Auxiliary Visitor, allowing for greater time and flexibility in his work calendar.
