As Director of Youth Ministry, Bethanne oversees the faith formation for Grades 7 - 11 for students attending public school, including our two-year confirmation preparation program for public and private school students.
"I love working with the teenagers of our parish. Their energy, inquisitiveness, humor and spirituality inspire me. I believe that they have so much to offer the Church, and I try to instill a love of service through mission trips and our service group, Labor of Love." Bethanne uses the eight components of youth ministry as developed by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops: The Ministry of Advocacy, Catechesis, Community Life, Evangelization, Justice and Service, Leadership Development, Pastoral Care, and Prayer and Worship.
Bethanne grew up in Muskego and has been a part of St Leonard since 1973! She joined the staff as director of youth ministry in 2002. "I have four wonderful grown children, two boys and two girls." For fun, Bethanne loves to travel and create things to give as gifts.
