Angela BisekAngela Bisek became the Newman Center of Oshkosh administrative assistant and music director in 2014, and music director in 2016. Angela graduated from UW-Oshkosh in 2004 with an Instrumental and General Music Education degree and was involved in the Newman Center.

Angela says St. Therese of Lisieux has had the greatest impact on her life and spirituality. She especially likes how St. Therese chose to be happy despite the difficulties she faced in the convent. Angela says it is easy to focus on the negative, but we can choose a different path.

Angela says her blessings include education, talent, work, shelter, food, a loving family, supportive friends, and a beautiful daughter, Elie. Angela says her favorite ways to talk with God are meditation, independent silent prayer and hiking in the woods.


Sara Scheunemann | Administrative Assistant

Sara ScheunemannSara Scheunemann, a native of Wisconsin, is excited to return to her home state after 10 years away to join the UW-Oshkosh Newman Center. If someone would pay her to be a full-time student, she would go to school forever. The next best thing is serving college students and faculty, which she has done with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, the University of Dayton, and Indiana Wesleyan University.

After a long journey, Sara was received into the Catholic Church at Easter Vigil while living, praying, and volunteering for a year with the Benedictine Sisters at St. Scholastica Monastery in Duluth. Sara has a master's degree in Christian spirituality from Creighton University and is a spiritual director. She also enjoys traveling to national parks with family and friends and once spent a summer touring the parks of the West from Montana to Alaska with her brother and sister-in-law.
