Welcome Fr. Garrett

Greetings St. John's and St. Luke's Parishioners, 

I know Fr. John published a nice bio for me so you know where I'm from and where I went to school, when I was ordained and where I've been assigned before. So, now I figured I would share a little more personal info. 

​For those wondering, my last name is pronounced caw, like the city of Kaukauna. I am a cradle Catholic and even at UW Madison made Sunday Mass a priority, which ended up being a great foundation from which my vocation would become clearer.  

Even though I am only 38, I figure I have enough hobbies to carry me to retirement and beyond! I love the outdoors so I was certainly excited to be returning to the Wisconsin River valley. I enjoy deer hunting in the fall and fishing in the summer. For spring, especially in March, one of my favorite activities is gathering maple sap and boiling it down for syrup.  In my best year, I produced about 9 gallons (so yes, I'm willing to share!  It also makes a great muddling base for Old Fashioneds)!!

In seminary in Denver, we were pretty spoiled with truly excellent chefs, and I made it a point to befriend them and learn as much as I could. To that end, I'm fairly handy in the kitchen. My mother also gets a lot of credit for making almost everything from scratch as my brother and I were growing up on our 5-acre homestead, east of Fort Atkinson. That's a little sample of the story, but there's plenty more. I trust we'll have years to tease it all out. I'm excited to be your future pastor and look forward to pursuing our call to holiness!  See you in July!

Respectfully in Christ,
Fr. Garrett Kau
