Fr. Jozef Wroblewski, Pastor
Nicole Schoenberger, Office Administrator
I was raised in St. Albert and attended St. Albert Parish. I graduated from ESSMY. I married Mark Schoenberger in 1992 and we have 6 beautiful children, 5 daughters and 1 son. Our oldest is 25 and our youngest is 12. We have moved around as Mark is a Forester. We’ve lived in Chetwynd, B.C. for 6 years and Hinton, AB for 9 years. We’ve been a part of Holy Family Parish since 2012.
I worked at ESSMY as Office Support for 4 years. I was very involved with their faith based activities. I started a parent prayer group and have taken 2 groups of students on a Mission trip, my first one to New Orleans where we rebuilt homes for victims of Hurricane Katrina and the second to Costa Rica where we worked in a Catholic Orphanage painting 3 houses and 1 school as well as interacting with the children in the afternoons.
I have been actively involved in all parishes I’ve attended. I taught Baptism Preparation, Reconciliation, First Eucharist, Confirmation, and coordinated Children’s Liturgy for 12 years. This has been a great faith journey. I am currently involved with SEARCH Retreats. This retreat invites youth to grow in their relationship with Jesus.
I am very blessed to be a part of this parish and blessed to work with vibrant faith filled people.
Joanne Willette, Office Assistant
Our family moved to St. Albert in 1999. We felt so welcomed from the first time we attended Mass at Holy Family. I have two teenaged daughters, Sarah and Emily, and was widowed in 2009 when my husband, Peter, passed away from Lymphoma.
Since joining the parish, I have taught marriage preparation, was a guitarist for the Alleluia Children’s choir and I am currently a lector, member of the CWL and co-leader of the Catholic Girls League.
I earned a Bachelor of Secondary Education at the U of A in Biological Sciences and Mathematics in 1988. After teaching in Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec, I ‘retired’ to be at home to raise our girls.
I joined the Pastoral Team in October 2011 and feel blessed to work for such a holy and vibrant parish!
Marieta Paul, Pastoral Associate
I grew up on a farm near Riviere Qui Barre, Alberta. I obtained a CREDO Diploma from Gonzaga Jesuit University in Spokane, Washington in 1976, a Bachelor of Theology With Distinction (B.Th.) from Newman Theological College in 1979, and a Masters of Theological Studies With Distinction (M.T.S.), again from NTC, in 2014.
Douglas Paul and I were married in 1979 and we have four children, all grown and married now, and we have seven grandchildren (so far!).
Douglas and I have belonged to Holy Family Parish since 1983. I very much enjoyed being at home with our children when they were young, and Douglas and I volunteered with many different ministries in the Archdiocese of Edmonton and in Holy Family Parish during those years.
I have been on staff at Holy Family Parish as the Pastoral Associate since 1991, and the opportunity to use here the talents and experience with which I’ve been blessed is a privilege and a joy. I am currently responsible to Fr. Jozef for the ministries of RCIA, Sacrament Preparation (Baptism, First Reconciliation & First Eucharist, and Confirmation), and Music Ministry. I also work in Spiritual Care for Covenant Health at Youville Home in St. Albert.
Noëlle Pottle, Youth Minister
I was born in St. Albert, but my family moved around a bit growing up. I've lived in Chetwynd, B.C., Hinton, AB, and then St. Albert after I graduated from high school in 2011. Nathan and I got married in May of 2016, and now we live in Edmonton and bought our first home in the summer of 2019.
I went to Grant MacEwan and then transferred to the University of Alberta for Elementary Education. Both of my teaching practicums were held in St. Albert, at Neil M. Ross and J. J. Nearing Elementarty Schools. I graduated in 2017 with my Bachelor of Education, and I also recieved my Certificate of Catholic Education from St. Joseph College.
I love pretty much everything Disney (I'm standing in front of the Disney Castle in Florida in my picture), and even though I'm young at heart, I truly am an old soul. I love Jane Austen and Regency era stories, old classic movies like Rear Window, Some Like It Hot, and Hello Dolly, I listen to music by Bing Crosby and Dean Martin on a regular basis, and I read 86 books in 2018.
I have been the Youth Minister at Holy Family Parish since January of 2017, and I have loved every moment of it. I am growing in my faith daily, and even if I don't have all the answers to the questions of the youth, I love sharing that faith with them. One area that I have always been interested in is the Saints, and that is a topic that we have discussed multiple times. Our faith is a journey, and I am so happy to be journeying with the amazing youth from this parish and surrounding areas!
