As you know by now, we will welcome Fr. Nathan LaLiberte as our new Pastor beginning in July! Other staffing changes are occurring as we welcome and farewell staff members over the upcoming weeks:
We bid farewell staff member Carol Oldowski, RN, in her role as Parish Nurse. We thank her for her 17+ years of dedicated service to the parish! Though the Parish Nurse position is ending, many of the initiatives and parish groups that Carol served in this role will continue to be ministered to by other staff members in the future, such as the Lunch and Learn series and the ladies’ Mind/Body/Spirit group.
We also bid farewell to Liz Lockhart in her role as Director of Parish Operations. Liz will transition to a new position in the role of Faith Formation Director at St. John the Baptist at the end of July.
The search for a new principal for the school is underway as we wish Mindy Reeder the best of luck in her new position as Principal of St. Michael School in Prior Lake. Thank you for your steady leadership over the last four years!
We welcome Joanne Rachel in the role of our new Accountant. Joanne will serve both the school and the parish business office through her accounting role.
We also welcome Mary Dobson as our newly-hired Director of Evangelization and Faith Formation. Mary will join us in September once she concludes a month-long retreat and finishes up her current job assignment.
Please help make our new staff members feel welcome!
Additionally, we welcome Christopher Dietzen to his new role as parish Trustee. Chris will succeed John Povolny in this role at the parish and joins fellow trustee Tom Burns. We thank John for his many years of tireless leadership! Though there are changes on the horizon for Nativity of Mary, we continue to trust God as He leads us forward through challenges and opportunities. Our mission continues to be to make Jesus Christ known and loved!
Fr Nathan LaLiberte
