Raised in Mukwonago, Fr. Kevin Tanel felt a strong connection to his faith as a child, “playing” Mass with his grandma and his brother. As he grew, his call to serve God did as well and through Adoration, he fully discerned his vocation to become a priest. After graduating from high school, Fr. Kevin went to Loyola University’s college seminary and earned a bachelor’s in psychology and philosophy. He then entered St. Francis de Sales Seminary and after becoming ordained as a transitional deacon last year, served at St. Francis Borgia in Cedarburg. In May 2023, he was ordained as a priest for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. This is not Fr. Kevin’s first time serving at Holy Family Catholic Community. He served as a seminarian with our parish a few summers ago and we are excited to welcome him back.
