My name is Jennifer Krueger and I am honored to serve as your new Director of Music! I grew up in northwestern Minnesota, where I developed a devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and began playing organ for weekend masses at age 12. By high school, I was playing for multiple masses and choir rehearsals each week. My college education includes a B.A. in Music from the College of St. Benedict with concentrations in Liturgical Music, Piano, Organ, Voice, and Theology. Throughout college, I was employed by St. Ben’s as a Student Campus Minister specializing in Liturgical Music and blessed with constant mentorship from the Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict. During and after college, I was employed as Music Director for St. John the Baptist Parish at the Abbey Church in Collegeville serving the non-monastic community surrounding St. John’s University. For the past 21 years, I have been assisting my husband in his role as Music Director at St. Michael Catholic Church while raising our
four sons. During these years, I have been serving the parish as a choir director, pianist, music coordinator, and an active supporter of our sons’ Catholic school.
Thank you for your joyous welcome! I look forward to creating meaningful worship music with you!
