Welcome Terri Pastura

Holy Spirit Parish is pleased to welcome our new Director of Religious Education (DRE)/Parish Catechetical Leader (PCL)—Terri  Pastura

Terri is excited about the possibilities here at Holy Spirit. “Faith formation is lifetime work, not merely a classroom experience.  I hope to assist parents as the primary educators of their children, along with providing our teachers with the support they need in the formal education setting.”

Terri comes to us with experience in public and private school administration, classroom teaching and ministry formation work and a deep commitment to the sacramental life of the Church. 

Our success is dependent upon the superb efforts of our catechists and program volunteers.  Of course, we can always use more help!  If you have an interest in sharing your faith, please join the team.  Training and resources are provided.

Be sure to greet Terri when you see her around the parish!

Fr. Charles F. Strebler, Pastor
