TRAVIS KING

I was ordained on Saturday, July 15, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton in Hiawatha. I was assigned by Archbishop Jackels to the Pastorate of St. Columbkille and St. Joseph The Worker as Permanent Deacon.

I was born in Mason City and raised in Dougherty, IA. I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy & History with a Minor in Catholic Studies from Loras College. I furthered my studies in the Masters of Theology program with Franciscan University, Steubenville, OH, and through five years of Diaconate formation with the Archdiocese.

On August 12th, 2006, I was married to my wife, Melissa, in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Dubuque. We have four children: Erin, Anna, Claire and John. I work full time as a Director of the Office of Client Management with Prudential Retirement, where I have worked for 15 years.

I am also very involved with other organizations with the Church and community. I am an Eagle Scout and a 4th Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus. I am a Vincentian with the St. Vincent de Paul Society where I assist with home visits and fundraising to help those in need. I serve meals with the Dubuque Mission on Main Street and am involved with the St. Paul Street Evangelization efforts supported by KCRD. Melissa & I are members of the Serra Club of Dubuque where they raise awareness for vocations to the Priesthood, Diaconate and Religious Life. As your Permanent Deacon, I look forward to showing the love of God to others through liturgy, word and charity, and to leading many souls to Heaven.
