Timothy Berryhill has just joined our office staff as the Parish Support Specialist. Tim is currently living at the Archdiocese of Chicago House of Discernment on the Campus of Holy Name Cathedral where he is discerning a vocation to the Priesthood. 
Tim grew up in Houston, Texas and came to Chicago in 2007 to attend Loyola University Chicago. Upon graduating in 2011 with a Bachelors degree in Marketing, Tim accepted a Commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army National Guard where he currently serves as a Platoon Leader and UH-60 Blackhawk Helicopter Pilot.
In 2013 after initiating the steps to attend RCIA and receive the Sacraments of Initiation, Tim began to feel an interior call to a life of service in the Church through a vocation to the Priesthood. The faith became a very personal part of his life and he felt God calling him to both grow in faith and help others grow in faith as well. 
Tim is an FAA certified helicopter pilot and a former skydiver and scuba diver. Despite these adventurous hobbies, Tim regards them as secondary to receiving the Eucharist in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the call to evangelize and "set the world on fire" as St. Ignatius of Loyola once said.
Tim is very excited to become part of the Parish community at St. Josaphat. He looks forward to serving the needs of the Community an providing a vital service to Fr. Francis and the office staff. Feel free to stop by the office and introduce yourself to Tim.
