My husband Russ and I joined SJB in November of 2019. I immediately found my place and joined the Pastoral Council as Vice-Chair in 2020, I’m currently the Chairperson.
We spend our leisure time visiting our son, his wife and granddaughter in Austin, and our daughter in Los Angeles.
I have been a member of the Pastoral Council since July of 2021. I am also a member of the Building and Grounds committee and the Knight of Columbus. My wife Tracy and I have been members of St. John’s since 2000. We have three children, Mason, Blake and Marisa.
I have been a member of St. John the Baptist for 35 years. I am currently serving a second term on the Pastoral Council. It is a pleasure to serve this wonderful parish. My husband and I love spending time outdoors, and with our daughters and granddaughters.
Hi! My name is Sara Thomson and I'm a member of the Parish Council. I have been on the council since the summer of 2022 and am the liaison for the Catholic Women/Christian Mothers group. I have volunteered as a high school mentor, attended and led a CRHP retreat, and my husband and I are mentors for couples going through marriage prep here at St Johns. My husband and I have four children who have all grown up at this church and it truly has been a blessing to meet some of our closest friends at this parish. I love serving this community in any way I can. God Bless!
My name is Bob Charles and as a Parish Council member my mission statement is to serve, perform, and supply to the needs of our Lord's people. In addition to being an active member of SJBH, I spend time each week at Woodside nursing and assisted living. I do two rosary groups, card groups, reminisce programs, bingo and one on one visits every week. Blessed that God has given me the time to spend with our seniors.
My family joined SJB in February 2022, when we returned home to Green Bay after several years living out of state, and I joined the Pastoral Council in June of 2022.
I serve as a liason to the Social Concerns Committee, and I also teach 3rd grade Faith Formation. I am enthusiastic and passionate about fostering a personal relationship with Christ, and discovering the beautiful richness of the Catholic Faith!
My husband, Tim, and I have a daughter and a son, ages 9 and 1, and I absolutely love being a stay-at-home homeschooling mom.
God has given our family a great gift in being part of His family here at St John's, where community, support, and prayers abound, and His presence is felt!
