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.
Howdy! My name is Lianne Jones and I am so honored to be a member of the Pastoral Council. I came to Green Bay in August of 2019 by way of Columbus, Ohio, but I'm originally from Dallas, Texas. My family (husband Dan, daughter Delaney and mother-in-law Gloria) and I officially became members of SJB in 2021 and began getting involved in the parish after the Covid restrictions were lifted. In addition to the Pastoral Council, I am also a member of the Forerunners, Catholic Women/Christian Mothers, Prayer Ministry and am a Core Team Member for Walking With Purpose.
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!
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.
Resides in Hobart, where he is the Village Administrator. Prior to moving to the area, he was the City Administrator in Prairie du Chien (2010-17) and Mayor of the City of Ripon (2003-2010). He also was a radio personality in several different locations (Stevens Point, Ripon, Kansas to name a few) in a number of different positions, from a rock and roll DJ to a morning show host to a sports play-by-play broadcaster. Aaron, who is a UW-Stevens Point graduate, and his wife, Sarah, have three children. Their oldest (Kylie) works at Bellin and is going to NWTC where she is enrolled in the nursing program. Emily attends Pulaski High School, and enjoys volunteering at the church. Their son, Carson, attends Pulaski Middle School. His children all went to a Catholic school in Prairie du Chien, where they were very involved, including Aaron being one of the parish's bingo callers. Last, but certainly not least, they have a cat, Giorgio, who is blind. When they moved to Green Bay, they didn’t know which parish they wanted to join. After attending another Catholic church briefly, Aaron said they decided to check out SJB - and fell in love with the church. Aaron wasn’t born Catholic. When he and his wife decided to get married, Aaron went through RCIA, joining the Church just prior to their marriage in 2004 in Amherst, WI.
