Very Rev. Timothy L. Kitzke - Co-Pastor  [email]

Fr. Kitzke was born in South Milwaukee and did his priestly training at St. Francis Seminary, Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. and the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium. Ordained in 1989, he has served at St. Roman Parish, Holy Family Parish, and in 1999 was assigned to bring together three parishes, Mary Queen of the Holy Rosary, St. Hedwig, and St. Rita. He attributes the success of the merger to the wonderful parishioners, both old and new, and a staff, parish leadership, and many volunteers who give of their time, talent, and treasures to make our parish the loving family it is.

In 2006, he was also assigned as pastor of Old St. Mary Parish in downtown Milwaukee and serves as dean of District 13. He also serves as chaplain to several groups in the archdiocese, and serves as speaker and director at various groups and retreats through the year.

Fr. Tim is grateful to God to serve as priest and looks forward to many more years of service to Christ and the Church. Above all he aspires to be a good and faithful servant to Christ’s people, through prayer, devotedly presiding and preaching at Mass and the Sacraments, teaching, counseling, and helping his parish reach out to the poor.
