Timothy Johnston is a native of Old Mines, Missouri. Timothy’s love for music and liturgy was nourished by his family and parish community of St. Joachim. After completing a degree in music education at Quincy University, where he also served as Director of the Office of Worship and Prayer, Timothy spent three years as a Canon of the Order of Prémontré (Norbertines) in De Pere, Wisconsin. While there, he worked closely with the Diocesan Office of Liturgy (Green Bay) training liturgical ministers and giving workshops on liturgical theology. Timothy spent three years teaching religion both during and after his time in religious life. As a high school religion teacher, Timothy served as a campus minister, coordinating the student liturgy committee and the student liturgical choir. In 2008, Timothy completed an MA in Liturgical Studies at Saint John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota. After completing his MA, Timothy served as the Director of the Office of Liturgy for the Diocese of Salt Lake City, Utah and on the board of directors for the Southwest Liturgical Conference for three years. Currently, Timothy is the Director of Liturgical Programs at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.
