Dear Good People of Saint Bernadette,
On January 8 our parish staff finally had a chance to celebrate the Christmas season with lunch at the rectory. The holidays have given me some time to consider how blessed we are with a wonderful staff who work really hard to accomplish the mission of Jesus in our parish church and school community.
Photography is a challenge when taking a picture of a large group in a smallish room with a remote button on a camera, but I think this one works. Starting at the back on the left, I would like to name our staff in case you haven’t had a chance to connect faces with names.
Of course, Fr. Rich; peeking through next is Jeannete Egerstorm assistant to Martha Drennan, our Director of Faith Formation; then Bill Rust, assistant to Jeff Clapp (not pictured) in facilities maintenance; way in the back, then David Mathers our Director of Music; Fr. Nicolas; Doug Mills, Development Director; Myrna Masakayan, assistant to Margaret Krupp, and extended office hours receptionist; Martha Drennan our Director of Faith Formation; Kristen Zengierski, program coordinator for Youth and Confirmation; me (way in the back), and Stephen Paquette, assistant Youth Director.
From the front left to the center is Guillermina Salinas, rectory housekeeper and cook; Barbara Dalmut, our school Principal; Kendra Pomilla, parish Secretary and Margaret Krupp, Bookkeeper.
