PARISH STAFF CHANGES

Beginning on July 1, our own Kathy Wasniewski, who spent four years as our Coordinator of Religious Education and Principal of PREP for Saint Mary Parish, will be taking on a new position at our Parish. Kathy will assume the position of Parish Bookkeeper and Purchasing Agent. She has exceeded my expectations in this important ministry and hands it on in great shape to Anamaria Hazel, who will be our new Coordinator of Religious Education and Principal of PREP. Renee Jacobs, Our Parish Operations Director, has since moved to Reno, NV and has taken a leadership position with the University of Nevada. Mary Beth O'Connor will assume the position of Director of Operations while continuing in her role as Parish Business Manager. I am grateful to Mary Beth, Kathy, and Anamaria in their new leadership roles for our parish.
