Father John Haugen

By Pat McTaggart

Freelance Writer

 

When Father Paul Peters retired earlier this year, the task of shepherding the parishes of St. Joe’s, Elkader, St. Mary’s, Strawberry Point, and Sacred Heart, Volga, became the responsibility of Father John Haugen, who was already pastor of St. Mark’s, Edgewood, and St. Patrick’s in Colesburg. Due to a shortage of priests, Fr. Haugen now finds himself in the position of several priests in the Archdiocese of Dubuque, who are pastors to multiple parishes.
