WELCOME TO OUR NEW PASTOR
Rev. Joy Anthony Thachil SAC - Milwaukee Archdiocese (August 2020)
I hail from the state of Kerala and was ordained on May 22, 1988 for the Pallottine Province in India. For two years, I was involved in the parish ministry and subsequently worked as Instructor of Religion at our minor seminaries for five years. Later on, after completing a Master’s program in Philosophy I was appointed an assistant Professor and Advisor to our Philosophy students for four years at Pallotti Institute of Philosophy and Religion in Goa, India.
I arrived in the US in 2002 to do a Master’s program in Western Philosophy at Texas Tech University. I resided at St. Elizabeth University parish and worked in the Diocese of Lubbock for 11 years, including Christ the King Cathedral as associate pastor. Meanwhile I had an opportunity to do further graduate studies in Philosophy of Science and taught at the undergraduate level in the Philosophy department of St. Louis University. While doing my graduate studies, I served at St. Louis Cathedral Basilica as Priest-in-Residence.
I truly enjoyed ministering at various parishes in in the dioceses of Texas and Missouri, and the people have been very friendly, supportive and generous wherever I have served as pastor and educator. Now I look forward to working at St. Agnes parish and school in collaboration with the people of God and the clergy in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee!
