Family Newsletter of Our Lady of Good Counsel
I am incredibly excited to have been named as the new Parish Catechetical Leader. I look forward to making this transition from school to parish. I know that I have huge shoes to fill and will do my best in making this as smooth of a transition as possible. I have faith in all of the support that this parish has to offer. Dr. Dix has done an incredible job and I only hope that I can live up to what she has continued to do for many years in this parish. I could not ask for a better mentor than Dr. Dix.
Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish has been my home for many years. I was a Good Counsel graduate, was married here, had my children baptized here, am a Eucharistic Minister, am one of the Wedding Liturgy Coordinators for the church, and of course am a parishioner. This parish holds a very special place in my heart and as I look to the future I want to make sure that it continues to thrive.
In regards to my educational background I graduated from Holy Cross High School and I went on to receive a B.S. in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Kutztown University. I then began teaching 2nd grade at Our Lady of Good Counsel. I taught 2nd grade for 16 years and then moved up to middle school teaching 6th grade ILA and 7th and 8th grade religion. Teaching 2nd, 7th, and 8th grade religion has allowed me the opportunity to prepare students for the sacraments of Penance, Eucharist, and Confirmation.
I welcome the incredible opportunity that I have been given in taking on this exceptional job.
