Rev. Timothy J. Taugher
During his many years as a Catholic priest, the Rev. Timothy Taugher has ministered to the sick, led his parish though a successful merger and watched the congregation grow.
Before coming to St. Francis, Taugher was full-time chaplain at United Health Services facilities and the Diocesan Director of Social Action.
He's been an activist since the 1960s when he saw a film on poverty during a Holy Week retreat at Catholic Central High School in Binghamton (now Seton Catholic Central High School) where he was a student.
He has balanced his duties as a parish priest with an intense social activism focused on workers’ rights, poverty issues and nonviolence. He’s a member of the Binghamton Labor-Religion Coalition and the upstate group Friends of Franz Jagerstatter (named for an Austrian farmer who was executed for refusing to serve in Hitler’s army)
