Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Mary’s and Our Lady of Lourdes,
I am happy to share with you that Timothy Johnston has accepted my invitation to serve as our new part-time Coordinator of Sacred Music and Liturgy ad interim, overseeing all of our liturgies in English in both sites (Saint Mary’s and Our Lady of Lourdes).
Timothy A. Johnston is an editor and liturgical training consultant for Liturgy Training Publications in Chicago, IL. He earned a master of arts in liturgical studies from St. John’s University, Minnesota and a master of arts in Christian doctrine from Marquette University, Wisconsin. His bachelor of science in music education was granted by Quincy University, Illinois. Originally from Old Mines, Missouri, Timothy previously served as the director of the Office of Liturgy for the Diocese of Salt Lake City, the director of the Office of Worship for the Diocese of St. Cloud, and as director of Liturgical Programs at Marquette University. He has served as a high school teacher, written articles on pastoral liturgy, and presented workshops on liturgical formation.
Please join me in welcoming Timothy to our parish staff! He may be reached via firstname.lastname@example.org
We are in the process of creating a search committee to assist me in the process of seeking a permanent minister for this position. I promise to do my best to keep everyone informed as we progress through this process.
