In January 1999, Joan Powell took up the position of parish secretary for St. Augustine of Canterbury Catholic Church in Hecker. After more than two decades of dedicated service, she is retiring.
“I’m not leaving the parish, or the town, just the job,” she told the North County News recently. Powell is currently training the new parish secretary, Lori Rozhon, and will be wrapping up her time there by the end of February. However, she quickly added that she’ll still be close by and ready to lend a hand if needed.
