By now most of you are aware that I have been asked to serve as the “Director of Multi-Parish Faith Formation” for both Immaculate Conception and St. Catherine’s. Before I chat about what this role change means, I first want to extend my warmest wishes and prayers for success to Ashely Blank who served the young people and families at St. Catherine’s so well these past years.
The big question that many are asking is “what does this mean for religious education and youth groups for Immaculate?” The short answer is, that is currently a work in progress. I will be working on boosting a volunteer base, seeking insight and putting together/re-forming an advisory board to help drive programming that best meets the needs of young people and families of both communities. It is my hope that we will be able to provide a variety of different models and opportunities for faith formation and youth ministry as we possibly can. The success of all of that though will depend heavily on a robust volunteer base. With that said, I may be tapping some of you on the shoulder to see if you would be willing to help in some capacity. Stay tuned for information about religious ed. and youth groups in the coming weeks. Finally, thank you Fr. Chumo and Fr. Joe for your faith in me to fill this role. My prayer is that I am able to serve the young people and families of both parishes well.
