This weekend Fr. Jeff celebrated his first weekend Masses at St. Raymond. We were happy to welcome him and we look forward to journeying together as a parish family. We are thankful to Bill Monaghan who led us in worship as Kenny enjoys a well deserved vacation with his family.
We would also like to share some additional news.
Richara Krajewski, who has served as Pastoral Associate for 6 years will be stepping away from the St. Raymond leadership team. She will continue to support Confirmation candidates as they prepare for the sacrament in November. We are grateful for her years of service and send her with our prayers as she begins a new role of service to the Church with Catholic Leadership Institute.
We welcome Antoinette Reaves, a long-time member of the parish community to the staff as Pastoral Associate. She will be leading our parish discipleship work and outreach, youth ministry, and also will direct our pastoral care. Toni will bring her experience in education, ministry, performing arts and so many other gifts to the service of the parish. She will assume her role effective July 5th! She would love to connect with you - so be sure to send her a message to set aside a time to meet and introduce yourself. You can send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
God is with us as we move forward - expecting many great things for our beautiful parish family. Life is better with Jesus!
