Reverend Jonathon Schmeckel
“As a priest, I hope to be a bridge to bring people to God and God to people. I look forward to getting to know the families of St. Peter, Resurrection and St. Lawrence parishes. While priestly life is still very new to me, I have really loved celebrating the Sacraments – especially the Mass and Confession. Please pray for me as I begin life with you, and know of my prayers for you and your families!”
Education: Bachelors of Science in Dairy Science and Agricultural Business – Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa (2014); Master of Divinity – St. Francis de Sales/Sacred Heart Seminary.
Hobbies/Interests: I’ve been a student for pretty much my entire life, so I don’t have that many hobbies yet! I enjoy running, and I exercise just enough to be able to run. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends across the state!
Family: I have a younger sister who is married and lives on our family farm; I also have two stepbrothers. My parents and grandparents (and most of my extended family) all live in Racine or Kenosha.
