Father Dave was able to put his accounting and business administration degrees to great use in helping the parishes he served to continue their mission to the people and care for their facilities without burdening parish members with heavy financial concerns.

 

Father Dave grew up in a family of twelve being the third from the youngest.  He has a very deep understanding of family life, it’s joys, problems and sorrows.  With fifty four nieces and nephews Father grew up loved, and cared for many small children.  He thoroughly enjoys the “little ones”.  They are and have always been a great part of his life.  Children are all precious not only in the eyes of God, but in Father’s eyes.  He believes it is important for children to grow up with a strong love for understanding and presence of God in their lives.

Reverend Karen Till

Associate Pastor

Holy Name of Jesus ECC

Reverend Karen Till was ordained a priest in the Evangelical Catholic Church on November 11, 2017.

 

Before ordination Reverend Karen taught in a Catholic School, was the Director of Religious Education and also pastoral associate. Her prayer was to help God’s people in whatever way He called her to do.

 

Because she spent much time with children and the elderly, it was very easy for her to answer God’s call to become ordained to the priesthood.

 

Reverend Karen grew up in a small town on the Mississippi River called Bellevue Iowa. She has 3 siblings, an older brother, an older sister, and a younger sister. She also 2 nieces and 3 nephews, 4 great-nieces (one deceased) and 2 great-nephews.

 

She looks forward to family reunions when the whole family comes together to celebrate each other.
