Holy Apostles Catholic Parish

December 21, 2017 – 09:33 pm

Fr. Don ThimmI feel very blessed and privileged to have been called as your new school principal at Holy Apostles for the 2013-2014 school year. My role as an educational leader is to work with the faculty, the school community, and the parish to ensure that Holy Apostles continues to provide a rigorous, quality, Catholic education that will best prepare all of our students to be active and engaged members within our global society. I am looking forward to working together to make sure our students continue to learn and grow academically and spiritually.

My husband Ted and I have two wonderful boys, Matt and Trevor, who keep us active. We live in Cedarburg and I am a member of St. Francis Borgia Parish. In my spare time, you will find me coaching and playing volleyball, basketball, and baseball. I also have a deep passion for Science, Math, and Engineering.

I have been part of the Holy Apostles School Family for most of my life. I began as a first grader and continued through my eighth grade graduation. I then had the privilege, after college graduation, to return to my Alma mater as a teacher. I had the honor of working with many wonderful families and being part of the education process for hundreds of first grade students over my twenty-seven years of employment.

I have returned to the H.A. School family as the part-time school secretary, as of June, 2011. My duties include providing assistance to the students, parents and staff of the school. I am also responsible for recording the tuition and fee payments and the scheduling of the lunchroom and playground supervisors.

I was appointed pastor at Holy Apostles on June 22, 2010. I have the good fortune of celebrating sacraments – especially Eucharist – with you. As pastor I work with the parish council, parish leaders, and parish staff to articulate the vision for the future of our parish. I then work with staff and parishioners to coordinate our efforts in accomplishing that vision at this time in our parish history.

My faith journey has finally found its root in priesthood and my priesthood journey begins at Holy Apostles. My hope is that these three years at Holy spotless will be similar to the three years of life the disciples lived with the historical Jesus. I desire to learn, encounter, and live the gospel with Holy Apostles community and be part of their mission. My experience has been like that of St. Peter’s at the transfiguration “It is good to be here.” It has been a great blessing to be part of this great community and I wish to grow more in my pastoral spirituality and intentional discipleship for the rest of my stay here.

I started serving Holy Apostles as a deacon in June 2009. My wife, Mary, and our family joined the parish in 1993. I provide baptism and marriage preparation. I perform baptisms, witness marriages, assist and preach at weekend liturgies – usually monthly. I am also a member of our Human Concerns and Outreach committees.

Liturgy and Music 262-754-0160

I started ministry at Holy Apostles on January 21, 2013. It is my privilege to lead sung prayer at our weekend Eucharistic liturgies, along with the host of many talented musicians present here. As director you would also find me at choir rehearsals, guiding the cantors and parish instrumentalists, assisting with music at weddings, funerals and major feasts and celebrations. My wife, Debra, is also a Catholic church musician from which our ministry began together many years ago. It is a joy and honor to continue that ministry at Holy Apostles, being aware of the signs of the times and the needs of this sacred place. May we become the words we pray and sing.
