Miscellaneous Notes
In 1980 Saint John's Abbey and University honored Abbot John with the Pax Christi Award. The award cited his "willingness to dedicate your life in its entirety to the service of your confreres of Saint John's Abbey and of the whole church."

Following his resignation as Abbot, he accepted an assignment as pastor of Seven Dolors Church, Albany, Minnesota, from 1979 until 1986. In 1987 he became chaplain at Mother of Mercy Nursing Home, Albany, where he served until 1998 when he retired to the Abbey's St. Raphael Health Center. Parishioners and nursing home residents often described him as a good, sensitive and helpful shepherd of his flocks.
