I’ve attended St. Mary’s since 2021, and my husband and I got married here in June 2023. I have a passion for parish renewal, and when this job came up I felt the Lord strongly tug my heart towards it. As Operations Manager I oversee our incredible staff team, and help to coordinate parish projects, events, and long-term vision.
