Coordinator of Music Ministry
Jennifer McAllister joined the staff at St. Norbert College Parish in July 2009. She came to St. Norbert from St. John the Baptist Parish in Howard where she served as the Director of Liturgy and Music for nine years. Prior to that Jennifer served as the music teacher for St. John the Baptist School. She is proud to be a St. Norbert College Alumni.
A deep love of liturgy and the music that is an integral part of the celebration of liturgy was fostered early in her life at her childhood parish of St. Mary in Antigo, WI. From an early age, Jennifer was involved in parish life.
As the Coordinator of Music Ministry, she is involved in the selection and preparation of music and the musicians for all parish liturgies. Jennifer also is involved with the scheduling and training of the many lay ministers that also serve the parish as Ministers of the Word, Ministers of the Altar, Ministers of the Eucharist, Ushers, Greeters, Cross Bearers, Hospitality, Sound System Operators, and Audio Visual Operators. She is also one of the people involved in helping engaged couples as they prepare for their wedding day here at Old St. Joseph Church.
Jennifer is married to Chad and they are currently raising three children; Sarah, Aidan and Colin in the village of Howard. She enjoys spending time at home with her family, gardening, counted cross-stitch, stamping and reading. Her family also includes one sister who is married and has one child, and her parents who live in Suamico and are members of St. Norbert College Parish at Old St. Joseph Church.
