Staff Member: Barb Abler
I serve as the Youth Director (high school program) for St. Bernard Parish, Christ King, and St. Pius X. I joined the staff in July 2000. I have been a member of Christ King parish since 1988 and have helped with youth ministry since that time. Prior to this assignment I worked as Director of Youth Ministry at St. Joseph parish in Grafton. I completed a 2 year course in Youth Ministry through the Center for Ministry Development at Alverno College. I have taken courses at Cardinal Stritch to enhance my ministry. I have two daughters, Laurie, a teacher in Charlotte, NC and Amy, a Dental Lab Tech in Brown Deer. Amy married Jesse Joers from St. Pius X parish on April 1, 2005. My passion is to work hard to keep the youth of our parishes involved with liturgy and service projects and feel it is important to listen to their needs.
