Joseph Bolle is the new Coordinator of Youth Ministry at St. Mary Magdalene. He is 24 years old and has spent most of his life in Sherwood, WI., the middle of seven children. Unsure of the course his life was going to take in high school, he decided that college would be an excellent way to find out.

He started out at Silver Lake College in secondary education. After student teaching at Roncalli, a Catholic high school, he realized that he wanted his career to be more of a ministry than simply a job. This eventually led him to SMM. He will also be coordinating youth ministry activities and assisting with the religious education program at Sacred Heart in Manawa. Currently he is living in Manawa at the Sacred Heart Rectory.

He is newly engaged to Megan, who lives in New London. He has spent the past four years working with and teaching various religious ed class es from 7th grade to high school graduates. “I am humbled and grateful to have this opportunity to be a part of this parish’s journey to Christ.” Make it a point to introduce yourselves and welcome Joseph to the SMM community.
