Tim Pick Leaving Le Mars for a Higher Cause
(Le Mars) -- Whether you know him from the Plymouth County Clerk of Courts Office, the Le Mars Community Theater or St. James Church- Le Mars is losing one of it's finest to a higher cause. Tim Pick will be embarking on a new adventure next month, as he is going to seminary to join the priesthood. Pick says that being the priest has been in the back of his mind for over 20 years, and now at young 51 years of age, he's decided it's time. Pick says St. James Church has been a main stay in his life since he moved to Le Mars as a 4th grader and that music was his starting point for involvement.
He's been involved as the Adult Choir Director, enjoys cantoring and being a part of the parish family. And as he started the five year program to become a deacon he decided that God wanted him to do more...thus his journey to the priesthood. Pick stopped working at the Clerk of Courts office at the end of June and will be leaving August 22nd to study at St. Meinrad School of Theology and Seminary for priestly formation. He said listening to to call at his age has been a challenge, but he's now at peace with his decision.
A big item left on the list is to say "see you later" (not goodbye) to his biological family, his church family and theater family. Many farwell gatherings will be held over the next month, and one of those happened this past Sunday at the Le Mars Community Theater.
Tim's heavy involvment with the theater has included participation in every musical production the group has done since 1992, including a role that put him in a priest's collar in "Bless Me Father," a role that he was very comfortable with. Tim has also been the president of the Board of Directors since 2000. His theater family will say "see you later" with an Open House from 2 to 4 at the Postal Playhouse that the community is invited to attend.
Since music is what started Tim Pick on the road to the priesthood, I feel that I need to end the story with this...
Good luck Tim! We'll see ya later!
