Texas Catholic Editor Bronson Havard to Retire

May 29, 2008

DALLAS (CNS) — Deacon Bronson Havard, the longest-serving editor of the Texas Catholic, the Dallas diocesan newspaper, will retire July 31. He also is resigning the positions of general manager of El Catolico de Texas, the diocesan Spanish-language newspaper, and president of the Texas Catholic Publishing Co. Deacon Havard, who turned 65 last year, was named Texas Catholic editor in 1993 and was ordained a deacon in 2000. He said he plans to work full time as Catholic chaplain at Southern Methodist University with the blessing of Dallas Bishop Kevin J. Farrell — a ministry post he has held part time for the past five and a half years. Bishop Farrell expressed “deep appreciation for the years of service Deacon Bronson has given to the Texas Catholic and the Catholic Church” and named managing editor Debra Hampton as acting editor after Deacon Havard’s departure. “The only career I ever wanted was in journalism,” Deacon Havard said.
