DIRECTOR OF PARISH MINISTRIES FOR THE CLUSTER PARISHES
In my new role as the Director of Parish Ministres for the cluster parishes of St. Catherine of Alexandria and St. Joan of Arc, I work very closely with Fr. Mike as i did before but have taken on more administrative duties. This new role allows Fr. Mike to engage in duties as priest and pastor of two vibrant parishes. My duties vary greatly with some of them specific to St. Joan such as the registration of all new parishioners, bereavement, and funeral planning and teaching in the school. Other duties are for the cluster which includes liturgy preparation, meeting sacramental needs, parent preparation for baptism and directing the RCIA (Rite of Christian Inititation for Adults) and an adapted process for children and baptismal preparation with parents presenting their children. Mixed in with all these pastoral needs are the day to day operations of the parishes. In addition, I sit on the Liturgy, Christian Formation and Human Concerns Commissions and the Joint Pastoral Council.
In my personal life, I am the mother of four young adults, one daughter and three sons. I am also blessed with two grandsons, Graeme and Dane. My academic credentials include a BA in Theology from Mount Mary University and a MA in Theology from Sacred Heart School of Theology.
It is an honor and a privilege for me to serve the people of God as together we build the kingdom in the sharing and living out of the Good News of Jesus.
