Dear LCSS Community,
It is with sincere congratulations that I announce the Principal of Central Catholic Jr.-Sr. High School, Dr. Joe Brettnacher, has accepted the position of Episcopal Moderator of Catholic Education and Superintendent of Schools with the Catholic Diocese of Columbus, in Ohio. It is difficult to put into words how much Dr. Brettnacher will be missed. His contributions to Central Catholic, our Lafayette Catholic Schools and the Diocese are truly remarkable. Over the past nine years Joe has gone above and beyond, and his commitment and genuine love for our students, teachers, staff, and parents is very evident. Dr. Brettnacher is a true servant leader with a tireless commitment to Catholic education.
In this new role, Dr. Brettnacher will oversee the operations of 11 High Schools and 42 Elementary Schools. As Episcopal Moderator for Education, he will serve as a primary voice of the Bishop in carrying out his prophetic role as the teaching authority for the Catholic faithful enrolled in Catholic schools, Religious Education, and Youth & Young Adult Ministry in the Diocese of Columbus.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Brettnacher on this outstanding accomplishment and opportunity. I am very grateful to Dr. Brettnacher for his countless contributions to our school system. Please keep him in your prayers as he begins this journey. Please click here for a letter from Dr. Brettnacher. Dr. Brettnacher’s last day at Central Catholic will be and he begins his role in Columbus on . I am working closely with our administration and Board of Directors to develop and execute a plan to ensure Central Catholic continues to be supported by very strong leadership. We look forward to your continued support and prayers.
