As previously announced, our Tri Parish Director of Youth Ministry, Barb Abler, will move to a well-deserved retirement as of June 30. I speak for many with a deep sense of gratitude for the gift of Barb. She is someone who inspires me by her love for the Church and Jesus’ young disciples. Barb is a woman of deep prayer, taking several Holy Hours during the week, as she prays for the needs of our children, our parishes, and many others. While she will be involved moving forward, it will not be the same without Barb’s energy and her love for Jesus Christ expressed in this unique way as a staff member. Congratulations, Barb.
Share your gratitude with Barb anytime on Sunday, June 24 between 11:15-1:00 at the Saint Pius X Cafeteria. This is an opportunity for all to share some fellowship and personally thank Barb for her extraordinary commitment to our parish youth.
We are happy to announce that Sarah Daszczuk has taken on the role of Tri Parish Director of Youth Ministry. This is a wonderful opportunity for our parishes as Sarah brings experience, prayerfulness, and a connectedness to an exciting new vision and direction for youth ministry that is up to date with the larger Church.
Sarah grew up in Kenosha at her home parish of St. Therese of Lisieux. After a powerful Confirmation experience, she knew God was calling her to dedicate her life to parish ministry. She received her BA in Theology and Youth Ministry from Benedictine College in Atchison, KS and her MA in Evangelization and Catechesis from the Augustine Institute in Denver, CO. Sarah has been serving in Milwaukee area parishes for the past 6 years, in both youth ministry and adult formation. In addition, she has been a speaker and conference coordinator with Arise Milwaukee for 5 years.
Sarah will begin on July 1. Take an opportunity to not only welcome her but to help her bring about a new direction for our young parishioners at a key age in their lives by responding to the ways she will ask for assistance.
