Suzanne, who joined our staff in 2022, provides administrative support to serve the Christian Formation directors, catechists and the families of about 600 children enrolled. Children ages preschool through grade 11 attend classes and also prepare for First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.
Suzanne, an Illinois native, studied liberal arts at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with an emphasis in Religious Studies, Social Service and Women's Health. She and her husband, Patrick, together have seven children, 13 grandchildren, two dogs and a cat. They love spending time with their grandchildren.
She and her husband operate Gerard's Embrace, a non-profit homeless shelter in East Troy for women and children.
As a parishioner, Suzanne said, "I love St. Leonard's Parish and the great staff. I also appreciate the many opportunities for prayer and the reception of the sacraments. I especially love, after the Holy Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Reconciliation. Everything here is done with class and attentive pastoral care!"
