Fr. John H. Schneider will celebrate his 40th Anniversary of Ordination during the Sunday morning Mass at10:00am on May 4th.

Father John was born on October 2, 1942 and is the only child of Marjorie M. (deceased) and Merlin A. Schneider. He was raised in Washington, Mo. and attended St. Francis Borgia Grade School until the age of twelve. In 1954 the family moved to St. Louis and upon arriving became members of St. Catherine of Sienna Church.

In response to God’s call to a religious vocation, John entered the seminary in 1956 and was one of 13 boys that went to Prep High from the eighth grade class of 21 boys. By the time college rolled around, he was the only St. Catherine boy left. In the presence of God, his family and friends, he was ordained to the Priesthood by the late Cardinal John J. Carberry on Saturday, May11, 1968 at the new Basilica of St. Louis, in St. Louis, Mo. Reverend John Schneider offered his First Solemn Mass on Sunday, May 12, 1968 at St. Catherine of Sienna Church, on Page and Leroy, Pagedale, Missouri.

As an Archdiocesan priest, Father’s first assignment was St. Genevieve du Bois, Warson Woods, Mo. He was active in the Youth Ministry, grade school retreats and taught at Nerinx Hall and Villa Duchene high school. One year later he was assigned to St. Catherine of Alexandria, Riverview Gardens, Mo. as associate pastor, under the leadership of Reverend L. Schieber for five years. He moved to North American Martyrs, Florissant, Mo. serving with Reverend Richard Nelke (of fond memory) for the next five years. At this time, in addition to his other duties, he was appointed hospital chaplain to Christian Northwest Hospital. This ministry would later become a more important part of his priesthood. His first rural assignment was in DeSoto, Mo. at St. Rose of Lima as an associate to Rev. John Hollaman who was later succeeded by Reverend Edward Hilgeman, a familiar face to the parishioners of St. Joseph/St. Anne. At the end of five years it was back to the city. First to Christ Prince of Peace, Manchester, Mo. and then to St. Martin of Tours in Lemay, Mo. After a brief hiatus he served at Holy Rosary Parish in Warrenton, Mo. with his dear friend Reverend Gene Brennan. Then it was to All Saints in St. Peters, Mo. with the erudite, Reverend Ron Chochol. At the request of the late Archbishop John L. May he received his first assignment as a pastor to St. Joseph/St. Anne. He arrived in June 1991. In addition to his pastoral duties in the parishes he is Chaplain at the Veterans Hospital, Jefferson Barricks, St.Louis, Mo., Chaplain at the Eastern Reception & Diagnostic Correction Center in Bonne Terre, Mo. He is treasurer and past president of the Bonne Terre Ministerial Alliance. He is also the representative of the Ministerial Alliance to the Salvation Army Program in St. Francois County for seven years. Today, we are here to celebrate the 40th year of his priestly journey. Let us keep him in our prayers as he continues to work for the greater honor and glory of God. Father John we wish you good health, a happy spirit and a long life!
