Rev. Mr. Michael Thiel
Deacon Michael Thiel is a seminarian for the Diocese of Green Bay studying at St. Francis de Sales Seminary in Milwaukee. Origionally from Oshkosh, Deacon Michael has a deep admiration for Blessed Chiara "Luce" Badano. "Chiara was an Italian teenager who died the year before I was born. She courageously chose to accept the pain caused by her cancer as a way to remain close to Jesus on the Cross. This heroic response to suffering by a teenager is inspiring." His moto is
"As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
Bishop David Ricken ordained Michael Thiel to the diaconate June 6, 2015, in St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, Green Bay. God willing, we will be ordained a priest in May 2016.
