Special to The Message

Bishop Joseph M. Siegel has announced the appointment of Jeremy Goebel as the Diocese of Evansville’s Director of Youth and Young Adults. Jeremy will assume his new duties June 20.

He replaces Steve Dabrowski, who announced his decision to leave the position earlier this year. Chris Hoehn (University of Southern Indiana) and Sister of Providence Jessica Vitente (University of Evansville) will continue their work at their respective Newman Centers under Jeremy’s leadership.

Bishop Siegel said, “Jeremy has been very active in youth and young adult activities at the parish, school and diocesan levels for several years. He brings strong mix of education and experience, and we welcome him to the diocesan staff. As Jeremy arrives, I want to recognize and thank Steve Dabrowski for his dedicated work for the diocese over the past 13 years.” 

Jeremy holds an M.A. in Theology from St. Meinrad. He brings nine years of experience in a variety of ministry positions. Jeremy currently serves as a theology teacher at Evansville’s Mater Dei High School. 

Jeremy said, “I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the Church in this role. I am praying for all those who minister to the youth and young adults in our diocese. I hope to be a resource and support for them as we work together to lead young people to Christ.”

He and his wife, Katie, and their children John Paul, Elijah, and Felicity, are members of Corpus Christi parish in Evansville.
