Director of Formation and Social Justice
I have a passion for sharing my faith while helping others to grow in their faith lives as individuals and as a part of our Catholic community. Coordinating faith formation and sacramental preparation for both our English-speaking and Spanish-speaking parishioners allows me to engage in leadership development with parish catechists and the opportunity to help create meaningful programs or events for our community. An important component of this work is promoting Catholic Social Teaching and social justice in the parish and beyond.
I enjoy the rewards and challenges of creating a weekly musical tapestry mirroring our complex and richly diverse congregation! While my main focus is the 9:30 Sunday mass in English, I am in close collaboration with our Saturday English and Sunday 11:30 Spanish-speaking musicians. Our bilingual unity masses are a highlight!
My work as the Volunteer Manager for Ascension Catholic Academy engages parents, parish affiliate members, corporate community cartners, local high school and college students, as well as the broader community to serve the support needs of our teachers and scholars in the classrooms and after-school programs. I came to Ascension as a parent in 2008, during which I volunteered in the school and worked as a liaison for parent involvement. I was asked to join the Ascension Development team part-time in 2014 to oversee and facilitate volunteer solicitation, engagement, and placement; my role expanded with the formation of the academy in 2016. I bring a faith-filled spirit and sincere motivation for helping to drive a future full of hope and success for our academy scholars. I remain grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the wonderful mission that is Ascension Catholic Academy.
