Dechant Foundation receives grant to establish the

Msgr. George A. Husmann Fund for the

Preservation of Church History

Special to the Register
The Dechant Foundation has received a $50,000 grant from the Msgr. George Husmann trust to establish a fund for the preservation of church history in the Diocese of Dodge City.
“We Catholics are blessed to have a 2,000 year history of our faith,” stated Bishop John B. Brungardt. “This grant will assist us in preserving the wonderful 60 year (and counting) history of our Catholic Diocese of Dodge City.”
“Word of this grant was both a surprise, but a fitting coincidence,” said Tim Wenzl, archivist for the Diocese of Dodge City. “I wrote my first parish history book for Msgr. Husmann in 1982 when he was pastor at Sacred Heart Cathedral. Now, the establishment of this fund, in his name, will support archival research, writing, and the preservation projects in the diocese.” “I really enjoyed getting to know Monsignor,” Wenzl said. “He was an adventurous person. He was a pilot and he loved to fly. There would be summers when he would help out in Alaska and fly to small villages to bring the sacraments to the people. He also served as chaplain for the Kansas National Guard. He was a priest with a wonderful sense of humor and a hearty laugh.
“I am grateful for the opportunity he gave me almost 30 years ago when he asked me to write the centennial book for his parish. I’ve been writing parish histories ever since that time and I enjoy documenting the discoveries I make. This grant really affirms the value of Church history in our diocese.”
Msgr. Husmann was born Jan. 14, 1916, in Fowler. He was ordained May 30, 1942, by Bishop Christian H. Winkelmann in St. Anthony Church, Fowler.
During his assignment as an assistant at Immaculate Heart of Mary, Windthorst (1942-45), he was charged with establishing a parish in Bucklin. He secured an old oil field shack which was converted into a church. The parish named the church St. George to honor their first pastor.
He also served as an assistant at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Wichita (1945), and St. Joseph, Andale (1945-47). Between these two assignments he was administrator for St. Michael Parish in La Crosse for six months in 1945.
Msgr. Husmann’s pastorates included: St. Joseph, Ashland, with St. Mary’s, Sitka (1947-49); St. Lawrence, Jetmore, with St. Anthony, Hanston (1949-53); St. Joseph, Scott City (1953-56); St. Rose of Lima and St. Patrick, Great Bend; (1956-69); Sacred Heart, Larned (1969-70); St. Dominic, Garden City (1970-76); Sacred Heart Cathedral, Dodge City (1976-84), and St. Helen’s, Hugoton  (1984-91), where he built a catechetical center.
He was named papal chamberlain by Pope John XXIII on May 8, 1959, and elevated to the rank of domestic prelate by Pope Paul VI on Oct. 14, 1964. Msgr. Husmann retired in 1991. He died Dec. 27, 1993.
The fund honoring Monsignor Husmann is an open memorial. Others wishing to assist in supporting historic research projects in Msgr. Husmann’s name, can do so by writing: The Monsignor George A. Husmann Fund for the Preservation of Church History, c/o The Dechant Foundation, Diocese of Dodge City, PO Box 137, Dodge City, KS 67801.
