Theology on Tap - "From Pilot to Priest: How the Discovery of Virtue Transformed My Life"
Tim Mergen graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 2010 with a BS in Political Science. Following the Academy he spent the next four years flying with the Air Force, eventually being assigned as a special operations pilot in the 524th Special Operations Squadron at Cannon Air Force base in Clovis, NM. After several years of flying, including one overseas deployment, Tim discerned in 2014 that God was calling him to seminary to pursue a priestly vocation. Originally growing up in the Madison area, Tim returned home and was accepted as a seminarian for the Diocese of Madison. Upon ordination he will also serve on active duty as a Catholic military chaplain splitting time between the U.S. Air Force and the Diocese of Madison. He recently finished his seminary philosophy studies at Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD and will be heading to Rome in July to continue his priestly formation at the Pontifical North American College in Rome.
