Bishop John J. Snyder

Bishop John J. Snyder was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Brooklyn in 1972. Pope John Paul II transferred him to the See of St. Augustine and he was installed as the eighth bishop of St. Augustine on December 5, 1979. As required by the Code of Canon Law, Bishop Snyder resigned on his 75th birthday, October 25, 2000.

Bishop Snyder is a regular visitor here at the high school. He says Mass and has lunch with the students on a regular basis. His Episcopal motto is "Peace in Christ".

When asked if he ever wanted to be Pope, Bishop Snyder replied, "No, but I always wanted to be a Cardinal, but I couldn't hit a curve ball."  Bishop Snyder's love for the St. Louis Cardinals is strong and he has been a loyal fan of this ball club for many years. He personally chose the mascot for Bishop John J. Snyder High School.
