2018 Chancellor Award Winner Father Tom Wittliff (SF ’55)


Fr. Thomas Wittliff’s call to the priesthood came through sad circumstances.  In 1950, he lost his 9-year-old little sister, Constance, to leukemia.  This tragic loss caused him to look at life differently.  “I knew I was different from my friends, but I didn’t know how.  I didn’t even like priests, and here I ended up becoming one.”  He graduated from St. Francis Minor Seminary in 1955 was ordained on Memorial Day in 1964.  He spent six years at St. Hedwig, five years as the Chaplain at Cathedral High School, a year at St. Peter Claver in Sheboygan, 11 years at St. Margaret Mary, two years at St. Anthony, and 18 years at St. Augustine in Bay View prior to his retirement in 2006.  It was during his time at St. Augustine that he earned his nickname, “the Bishop of Bay View.”

During his time at St. Augustine, he reconnected with his alma mater and began visiting students at Thomas More High School.  He has presided over countless weddings and baptisms for members of the STM family.  His sense of humor is legendary and it has helped him connect with STM students in a unique way.  Whether it has been meeting students for meals, lifting weights with them, or simply visiting school to banter with them in the lunch room, Father Tom always brings a smile to the faces of our Cavaliers.

He was inducted into the St. Thomas More Alumni Hall of Fame in 2014.  When asked to reflect upon his service to the youth of St. Thomas More High School, Fr. Tom simply stated that “it has been a wonderful opportunity to be a priest.”  Father Tom, you been a wonderful blessing for St. Thomas More and for all of the lives you have touched during your career.  Without question, Constance would be proud.

This year, STM has been developing a relationship with the UWM Lubar Entrepreneurship Center in order to show students how to get involved in their communities through their passions in life. Today, current UWM students and alumni came to STM to give “Ignite Talks” to our Freshman Servant Leadership group. Using the concept of “find what drives you as an individual and use that to make change," our guests addressed topics such as giving back, dealing with adversity, and living beyond the label of mental illness. Next year, we are excited to continue the partnership with UWM, who will be offering pop-up classes at STM. ... See MoreSee Less
