Karin Posdal, Alumni Spotlight

August 30, 2011

Karin is one of our ‘star’ alums!  Karin graduated from Silver Lake College of the Holy Family in 1976 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.  After SLC she went on to earn a Master’s degree in Pastoral Studies from Loyola University in New Orleans, and a Doctorate degree in Ministry from the Graduate Theological Foundation.  She also did post graduate work at Loyola University in Chicago.

Karin taught all grades of elementary school for 35 years and continues to share her love of teaching through the Green Bay Diocese ‘Emmaus Program’ (formerly known as the Commissioned Ministry Program) which is accredited by Silver Lake College of the Holy Family.  Karin also continues to teach in the Theological Studies Program at St. Norbert College in De Pere.

After receiving her doctorate, Karin served in many capacities of church life in the Green Bay Diocese.  She has been a Family Life Minister and Pastoral Associate in several parishes.  For six years Karin was the first married woman to serve as a Parish Director for two parishes in the Green Bay Diocese.  She retired from active ministry but still serves as a Spiritual Director for several people.

Karin has many fond memories of Silver Lake and continues a relationship with college to this day.  As a former member of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity for 16 years, she has a special affinity for the Order and treasures the time she spent with the Sisters developing spiritually and educationally.

Karin is an avid reader, she loves to sew and quilt, and also finds joy in cooking, gardening and playing with her pug dog, Sadie.  We are proud to have Karin as an alum of Silver Lake College of the Holy Family.  We wish her and her husband, Ron, and their children, a blessed and happy future!
