On June 12, the 35-year-old Texas-born priest will become rector of the Cathedral of St. Paul, the grand mother church of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. He'll replace the Rev. Michael Skluzacek, who will move to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in New Brighton. Johnson also will keep his current job as priest at St. Vincent de Paul Hmong Catholic Community in St. Paul.
Pam Miller of the StarTribune talked to him this week.
