From Deacon Dick

As you know through the Bulletin and Mass Announcements, Bonnie Fagan, our Pastoral Associate for Administration, is retiring this month after 23 years of faith-filled, selfless, and compassionate service to our people.  If you have not already done so, please wish Bonnie well.  We are working on plans to give her a "memorable" send off!!

I am grateful to those who joined me on our Interview Team (Mary Mawn, George Elmer, and Bonnie Fagan) for their yeoman's work in conversing with our candidates via ZOOM.

I am happy to announce that Ann McCauley has accepted the position of Pastoral Associate for Administration.  Ann has the experience and support of references that make her an ideal fit for this position.  Ann spent many years as a Senior Administrator for Alloya Corporate Federal Credit Union in addition to similar experience at St. Ambrose, the Catholic Community of Northern Columbia County, and St. Mary's in Ballston Spa. A graduate of the College of St. Rose and the St. Bernard's School of Theology & Ministry, Ann will join us on September 21.

As part of our Re-Igniting Our Faith Campaign, our first priority was the repaving and expansion of our parking lot.  That was accomplished this summer.  The other priority is reinvigorating Life-Long Faith Formation and a renewal of our focus on Evangelization (In a word, how do we bring the Church to the people).

I am pleased to announce that Kari Kurtz has accepted a newly formed position of Pastoral Associate for Youth Ministry and Evangelization.  Kari, together with her husband, Brian, and children, Jackson and Victoria, have been faithful members of our parish.  A graduate of SUNY Plattsburgh, Kari has been a "volunteer" in Faith Formation and is a Girl Scout Troop Leader.  Kari is also a member of our Faith Formation Imagination Team that is developing strategies and tactics to engage our parishioners at every stage of life, particularly families and young adults.  Kari will join us on September 23.

As always, we are grateful for the Holy Spirit in sending Ann and Kari to us so that we might continue to do God's work. 

Be safe, well, and at peace+++
