Parish Staff
Fr. Kyle Schnippel


A native of Botkins, Ohio, in the northern reaches of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Fr. Kyle Schnippel is one of six children of Sharon and Tom Schnippel. After high school, he enrolled at the Ohio State University, but a chance encounter at the Catholic Newman Center helped him to recognize a call to the priesthood, so after just a year at OSU, he enrolled at the Pontifical College Josephinum to begin studies toward the priesthood. Upon completion of his undergraduate degree, he enrolled at Mount St. Mary's Seminary of the West here in Cincinnati and was ordained to the priesthood in May of 2004. His first assignment was at Elder High School and Our Lady of the Visitation, but after just two years he was assigned as the Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese, a position held for eight years. In May of 2014, he was assigned to St. John Neumann and has truly enjoyed his time as a parish priest!

Becky Albrinck

Pastoral Associate/Youth Ministry

It is exciting that the Lord has led me back to St. John Neumann, since
it is a place that holds so many positive spiritual memories for me. 
My husband, Alex, and I were married here, and two of our three
children were baptized here.  It feels like coming home. I graduated
from the College of Mount St. Joseph with a degree in Religious
Pastoral Ministry and Music Education.  I twice spent time
teaching at McAuley High School, and during my break from teaching,
I stayed at home raising my young children.  I've also spent time in
real estate.  Throughout this time, I've been actively involved with the
Junior and Senior High youth groups at St. Ignatius.  That experience
has been a message to me that God wanted me back in ministry.
I am truly looking forward to working with the young people here            
at St. John Neumann.

Steve Neiheisel

Pastoral Associate/Liturgy & Music

My name is Steve Neiheisel. My love for liturgical music started as a member of the boy’s choir at Assumption Grade School in Mt. Healthy and it has continued.  The whole of Psalm 150 sums up my philosophy on music. “Praise him with the blast of trumpet….” 

My wife and I have three children and four grandchildren. I’ve been employed at the Cincinnati Enquirer for 32 years.

Mandy McNett

Pastoral Area/Business Manager
(513)742-0953, ext. 23

Hello my name is Mandy McNett.  I grew up in Cincinnati.  I went to Guardian Angels
Elementary, Turpin High School and then went on to receive my BA in Economics
from the University of Cincinnati.  My husband Ed and I were welcomed into the
Parish in 2004 and have enjoyed the continuous opportunities to give back through
stewardship that the parish offers.  Together with our 3 children, Abby, Ellie, and Jax;
we have made the parish a part of our family.  In my spare time I enjoy watching and
playing sports.  Whether it be a professional team, my kids or myself playing.  I look
forward to contributing to the success of this faith community by assisting the staff
and the parishioners of St. John Neumann Church.

Emily Branscum

Pastoral Associate/Faith Formation

Hello!  My name is Emily Branscum.  I am a recent graduate of Valparaiso University in Indiana and I am extremely excited to be serving in the St. John Neumann family!  I grew up in Cincinnati, attending St. Ignatius Loyola Church and school, and then went on to graduate from McAuley High School.  After being away from Cincy for school, I can honestly say nothing brings me more joy than having LaRosa's pizza, Skyline Chili, and Graeters ice cream back in my life!  I have always been very active in my faith.  From high school and into college I never missed an opportunity to teach others about the Church.  My favorite type of prayer is song, I have played guitar since I was 10 years old and I have led several worship bands throughout my time at Valpo.  I am a huge fan of St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body and an avid follower of Catholic Memes.  My time at Valpo, a Lutheran school, has really helped shape me into the person I am today.  I have learned so much about Christianity as a whole from the interactions and worship experiences I've had with all of my protestant friends.  I have always had a passion for educating people and revealing to them the awesomeness that is the Roman Catholic Church.

Dottie Foster
Education Assistant

Hello, my name is Dottie Foster and I have been working as Education Assistant since August, 2010. In my role, I support Faith Formation and all education efforts. So, that includes sacramental preparation, religious education for both children and for people preparing to enter the Catholic Faith. In addition, I support adult education and the Youth Ministry. I feel honored to be a staff member here and to be counted as a parishioner of St. John Neumann Parish.

I have been a member of St. John Neumann since 1991, when I moved to Fairfield from Wyoming, where I raised my three children, who have since given me seven grandchildren. Retired from The Procter & Gamble Company where I was an Internal Consultant and had responsibility for Human Resource Development, I continued to volunteer in several roles/organizations.

Most of my family still resides in New England, my first home. I love vacationing in New England and I also love coming home to my family and to Fairfield/Cincinnati, which has been home for over forty years.

My hope is that I can make a difference here, even in some small way.
