My name is Thaddeus Loduha and I am your new Youth Minister here at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish! I am from Wauwatosa, but hope to fly the nest soon to pursue adventures closer to Waterford. I graduated this past winter from St. Norbert College with a BA in theology and minor in geology. Throughout my time at St. Norbert, I have dedicated myself to the betterment of the surrounding community by aiding others on their journey in finding God’s tangible love in everyday life. Through such a livelihood, I have taught sacramental prep classes through St. Norbert’s Generations of Faith program, a catechetical program providing the families of the wider De Pere community an opportunity to grow in faith. I have also been the President of Frassati, the Catholic men’s group on campus. Through this position, I’ve had the joy of leading retreats, working alongside the Diocese of Green Bay on evangelization programming, and creating speeches in order to lead the men I was in charge of in the right direction. If you don’t find me in the gym, I’m most likely in the duck blind or curled up reading a good book. I also love to ballroom dance, so I find weddings to be quite fun! I’m very excited for this opportunity to guide children and families in the adventures of life, reminding all that God is walking with them every step of the way.
