|My name is Mark Ruedinger, and I am the principal of Christ Child Academy. We are a Catholic
school committed to partnering with parents in the education of their most precious gifts – their
children. Education of the whole child – spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, and physically – is of primary importance to our school.
Our vision and purpose flow from the Gospel message of faith, hope, and love. Teaching this message permeates our curriculum. Our students receive a value-based education where morals are stressed and taught throughout the day in every classroom. Through this Christ-centered environment, our social conscience is heightened enabling our students to be actively engaged in service and community projects. We understand the importance of giving back because we have been given so much. Praying together each day is a gift that we treasure.
At Christ Child Academy, we have one class of every grade from Pre-K3 to grade 8. This provides us with a small nurturing environment where children are encouraged and cared for in a special way to reach their potential. Christ Child Academy provides a supportive and faith-filled setting for its students to grow and learn.
Strong academics are of prime importance to the mission of our school. Our faculty is committed to professional development. Staff development is a crucial part of improving the educational program.
I invite you to take a moment and view the information on our website. If you would like more information about our school or a tour of the facilities, please call our school office at (920) 459-2660.
|My name is Christine Immel. I am your Tri-Parish RCIA Coordinator.
After being diagnosed with a life-threatening illness at the age of 26, I became a “seeker” myself. My sincere desire for Truth and the Grace of God led me back to the Catholic Faith, which I had been away from since childhood. In gratitude for this gift, I am answering a call to assist others as they come to know the love of Christ and wish to become true disciples.
I am currently enrolled in the Lay Ministry program at Cardinal Stritch University through the St. Clare Center for Catholic Life. I will graduate with a certificate in Lay Ministry in the spring of 2019.
I am the coordinator of the Compassionate Hearts Ministry at St. John the Baptist Parish in Plymouth, WI. We have been serving the sick and home bound since 2015.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jason. We have 4 children ranging from ages 2 to 21. We reside in Plymouth, WI.
I am quite the “Franciscan” at heart. I am drawn to simple living, the beauty of God’s creation, and fully living the gospel.
Please reach out to me with questions. I am ready to help you “answer your call” to become Catholic or even just chat about your interest or curiosity in the Catholic Faith.
I look forward to assisting you on your faith journey. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to “walk” with you.
My name is Lori Gullikson and I am excited to be the new Director of Religious Education and Coordinator of Youth Ministry for the Southside Catholic Parishes. Many of you may know me as a teacher and volunteer at Christ Child Academy (CCA) for the past nine years. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Education and am a lifelong member of this faith community, and an alumnus of St. Peter Claver and Christ Child Academy.
I have been married for 18 years to my husband, Ross, and we are proud parents of both a current CCA student and graduate. In my free time I enjoy music, the outdoors, reading and spending time with my family.
I look forward to providing the youth and young adults of our parishes with opportunities to grow in their faith and foster a life enriched by service and Catholic values.
