Jenny, who joined the staff in 2007, is responsible for many behind-the-scenes elements of our worship. She orders all liturgical supplies, coordinates our altar server schedule, and assists the Music Director when music supplements for the pews are needed. Jenny also has "light" secretarial duties weekly which include reminding our volunteers of their duties for weekend Masses, General Intercessions, helping prepare the presider's binder for Mass, setting the hymnal boards, making sure the lector and Gospel books are marked for the weekend readings and several other logistical duties.
"I am blessed because I get to live my faith. I have learned much more about our faith because I work here. I never knew how much planning goes into having Mass! There is much more than you would believe sometimes! I feel this is my way of 'thanking God' for all the blessing I have in my life! I love that I can work part-time and be flexible, but still keep my skills up to date."
Jenny grew up in Oak Creek as a member of St. Matthew's. Her two children are St. Leonard School graduates, and she was active on the Home & School Committee. Jenny also was a Girl Scout leader for her daughter's class and a girls volleyball coach for 4 years. She has been in the choirs at St. Leonard for over 10 years, has helped out with the Environment Committee, been a Eucharistic minister, sacristan, and generally help out where needed. "I have gotten to know so many wonderful people in our community by being involved in the school and parish life! I am truly grateful! This is a wonderful community!"
For fun, Jenny loves a good book. "I try to stay active by walking, bicycling, and hiking trails in our parks, and riding my motorcycle. My husband and I like to camp and enjoy being outdoors. I am absolutely a warm weather girl and love the beach or soaking up the sun in the pool. I also love to travel and never pass up an opportunity to go somewhere new!"
