Seventh in a Bishop's Appeal series

By Joanne Flemming
Compass Correspondent

Two years ago Carrie Miller of Green Bay, then 27, decided to stop climbing the corporate ladder "as fast as I could" and find a career where she could "give back and help others." She is now youth minister for Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, De Pere.

Jane Vanden Boogard, 51, Little Chute, is looking ahead five to 10 years when she retires as a business systems analyst at Thrivent in Appleton. A member of Holy Cross Parish, Kaukauna, she wants to become a parish business administrator or youth minister.

"I want to give back to the parish," Vanden Boogard said. "I don't want to see parishes die because we don't have enough people available to keep them moving. That is kind of a passion for me. We need to make (the parishes) strong and vibrant and keep attracting people."   Full story ...
