Learn about our presenter
Fr. Tim Oudenhoven
Fr. Tim Oudenhoven is a priest of the Diocese of La Crosse, WI. He was ordained on May 29, 2010 and within 3 months found himself at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico. During this first trip he was able to photograph the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe for the first time in high detail. Even more precious was his time at the basilica learning about our Lady's message. Upon returning from Mexico, Bishop Callahan assigned Fr. Tim to hispanic ministry in the Diocese. He has served in 6 different hispanic communities in his Diocese over the past 14 years and twice as a pastor. He is currently pastor of two parishes in North Central Wisconsin and a large hispanic community.
Two years ago, his Bishop gave him a 4 month sabbatical to complete his dissertation for a doctorate on Our Lady of Guadalupe and St John Paul II. From this study Fr. Tim continues to explore the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe as a spirituality of Marian evangelization.
