Faith Formation

I became a member of St. Mary's in 1989. I started teaching CCD in 1990-91 and have taught mostly Sacraments classes (my favorite). I have also been involved in Adult Faith Formation and promoting Catholic Devotions and Eucharistic Adoration. My grandchildren are my joy. I am forever thankful to God for calling upon me to be a part of His Good Work.
