For all that the people of our Sister parish are to us, do for us and help us realize in Medor, for 22 years, may God never stop blessing you."

NEW DIRECTOR OF FAITH FORMATION
This week we say farewell to Theresa who has been our Director of Faith Formation for the past year and a half. She will be moving to Bryn Mawr, PA with her husband Michael who has accepted a call as an associate rector at the Church of the Redeemer. Theresa has been a lovely addition to the staff meeting everyone with kindness and generosity, and she has done a fantastic job taking up the baton from Katie Remedios who created our RE program. Good luck and best wishes to you, Theresa. May you be blessed and guided by the Holy Spirit as you begin this new and exciting chapter. Know that you are loved and will be missed immensely.
We are pleased to announce that Alex Hernandez has accepted the position of Faith Formation Director and will be on board full-time beginning in June. Until then, he will be on campus occasionally and working to come up to speed with OLQP programs as he finishes out his current position.
