Parishioners of Corpus Christi Catholic Church and Holy Name of Mary in Maplewood welcomed their new pastor at this last weekend’s masses. Fr. Ryan Krueger, 35, was assigned to the parishes starting on July 1 after having served as pastor at Good Shepard Church in Chilton for the past five years. He says he is looking forward to getting to know his parishioners on an individual basis and serving them.
Fr. Krueger grew up in the Fox River Valley and graduated from St. Mary’s Central High School in Menasha in 2002. He went to a seminary school for eight years before being ordained a priest in 2012 and serving as an associate pastor at two parishes in Green Bay.
