including 14 as Diocesan of Quincy, in Illinois. Since his retirement and
relocation to Texas with his wife, JoAnn, where they can be near their
children and grandchildren, Bishop Ackerman has continued a
faithful shepherd and a steadfast successor
to the Apostles.Since 2011
he has generously served as Vicar of St. Timothy’s, and in recent months
has been chaplain to the Nominating Committee and undertaken a number
of visitations on behalf of Bishop Iker. We are grateful for Bishop Ackerman’s
ministry and witness, and we thank God for raising up a faithful
servant among us.
