St. Luke’s will install new pastor at Sunday service
The Rev. Justin Cloute will be installed at a special service Sunday at 4 p.m. at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, 301 Clark St., Watertown. Everyone is invited to attend the installation service.
Cloute will be joining the Revs. Anthony Schultz and Lance Hoff in his ministry at St. Luke’s.
Cloute is the eldest son of Robert and Lisbeth Cloute and grew up in Fort Atkinson. He graduated from Northwestern Prep School in 1994 and from Martin Luther College in 1998. He served his vicar year in Columbia, Tennessee, and graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 2002. He was assigned to Mount Zion Lutheran Church in Missoula, Montana, and served there for 16 years.
Cloute is married to Rachel (nee Westendorf). They have four children: Sophia, Ethan, Josiah and Caleb.
Cloute says he is excited about sharing the good news of a crucified and risen Savior with St. Luke’s and the community.
