From Local Sources
JASPER — The St. John Bosco Youth Ministry in Jasper has hired Jacqueline Ripberger as its new director.
Ripberger previously served as the administrative assistant to Bosco and succeeds Angie Greulich in the director role.
The St. John Bosco Youth Ministry leads youth closer to Christ, deepens their Catholic faith and empowers youth to be disciples of Jesus Christ. The ministry is a collaborative effort of the Catholic parishes in the Jasper area — Holy Family, Precious Blood, St. Joseph and St. Mary in Ireland.
Ripberger is a Purdue University graduate and brings experience from college campus and young adult ministry. She grew up in Plainfield, loves pistachio-flavored anything and St. John Paul quotes.
She said is thankful for everyone who has offered help as she transitions into the new role. She looks forward to becoming more deeply involved with the kids and families of Bosco.
Leaders of the ministry believe Ripberger’s enthusiasm for Bosco will continue its momentum and bring even more growth to the ministry.
