Education & Evangelization Commission

If you are what you should be, you will set the world on fire

- St. Catherine of Sienna

The goal of the Education and Evangelization Commission is to provide quality, educational programs for all ages, to instruct and promote our Catholic faith within our parish community while also reaching outside our parish to invite people to believe in Jesus Christ as Catholics, or renew their Catholic faith, and to equip Catholics with the tools to further this invitation. Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month with additional ad hoc committee meetings as needed. New members are approved by the members of the Commission and ratified by the Parish Council. Members should be prepared to assist on events and projects agreed to by the Commission.

Current membership includes:

Judy Apo, Amy Boxey, Kent Boxey, Fr. Dan Fox, Anne House, Sue Jackson, Dawn Mayer, Deb McGraw (secretary), Ellie Morse, Judy Oberloier, Laura Scheibert, Marybeth Stuart (Chair) and Bonnie Tappen
