LIFELONG FAITH FORMATION

 

“We are a Faith Family; Let us Practice Together"

Our goal is to help our children and their families to learn about their faith, to live their faith and above all to LOVE their faith.

Happy RETIREMENT! - I am deeply saddened but very HAPPY to announce that the Faith Formation Administrative Assistant Mrs. Lori Hoffman will be retiring at the end of this school year June 2018. She joined us in 2006 and has been with us for 12 years! Lori has been my rock and right hand. Everyone thinks I am so organized but it has been Lori doing everything behind the scenes. She is an Angel that God allowed me to work with, to share my joys and sorrows with and has given me so much happiness that there are no words to express how much I will miss her. I love her deeply and only wish her the best as she begins her retirement. May God Bless Lori and her family, she truly is a blessing!  

Happy WELCOMING! - I am so happy to announce that the Faith Formation has a NEW Administrative Assistant and I would like everyone to welcome Ms. Jessica Damain. She is currently working and training with Lori and is doing an outstanding job. She will be joining me on Sundays to get to know the students and their families. Jessica is a member of the Parish Parent Organization and has a son who attends our Faith Formation Program; Jessica is also a parishioner and a Ladies Sodality member. She brings fresh new ideas and her smile is contagious! So please stop by the office on Sundays and say "Hello" to our newest staff member. May God Bless Jessica and her family.
