5th & 6th Grade - Holly Dam
This will be my fifth year teaching religious education at St. Louis, and I am happy to continue that experience with the 5th/6th grades. I hope together we can deepen our knowledge of the rich Catholic beliefs and traditions, and commitment to service. I truly value the gift of my own Catholic upbringing, which included attending religious education classes throughout my school years and attending Marquette University. I am a mother of five children, ranging from a 5th grader to a college graduate. Although I grew up in a rural area south of Green Bay, I treasure the strong family connections and sense of community in Raymond/Caledonia and, of course, among the members of St. Louis parish. I work for our family business and when I do have spare time, I enjoy reading, biking and walking, Vietnamese cooking, and spending quality time with my husband and children.

7th Grade - Ross Sauer
My name is Ross Sauer and I am a first year catechist at St. Louis Catholic Church. Growing up in the Catholic Church, I have enjoyed my own faith journey as well as being a part of others’ growth in faith and spirit. I have learned a lot about the Catholic faith through Catholic grade/middle school, the sacrament of Confirmation, college retreats, mission trips, and liturgical ministry in my parish. What I enjoy most about the Catholic Church is the community and unity found in the Eucharist.

I currently belong to Old St. Mary Church near my home in Milwaukee. In my free time, I love to read, play golf, and watch movies. Graduating from Purdue University, I love cheering on the Boilermakers in any sport.

I am very much looking forward to this year at St. Louis. I hope to learn about each of the students and walk with them in their faith journey and life experiences. I am excited to communicate and connect with the class as we both learn more about how we can live a life like Christ.

7th Grade - Corinne Angotti
My name is Corinne Angotti. My husband Norm and I are Saint Louis Parish members. Our children Victoria (7th grade) Glen (5th grade) and Joey (1st grade) attend St. Louis Religious Education. My Catholic faith has been important to me as it provides a foundation to build our lives around. I’m proud to say that I belong to a church that has such steep traditions and heritage. This will be my third year as a catechist. I’m looking forward to learning along with my students as I’m sure their questions will help deepen my own faith and understanding as we seek to answer them together. A few things about me: I am in the Finance department at SC Johnson; we enjoy motorized outdoor activities (four wheelers, boat, motorhome); I am a Dance Mom as our daughter Victoria is in Company at our studio which means we travel to dance competitions; I am also a soccer and basketball mom… needless to say we are very busy! I look forward to a great year!
