A Bittersweet Parting

In the middle of August I will be leaving my position as Director of Faith Formation for the cluster and beginning as the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at St Kateri in Irondequoit.  This is an exciting professional opportunity that has been presented to me and I am looking forward to working with the Faith Formation team at this large parish.

It is a bittersweet parting for me.  I have a deep affection for the people of this cluster, especially at St Columba, my “home” parish.  In my three years here, I have come to know and care for the people at St Mary and St Vincent as well.

I have been blessed to work with so many wonderful catechists, youth, parents, and volunteers.  I am especially grateful for the parishioners who pray for and financially support faith formation and youth ministry.

I will continue to remember the cluster in my prayers, and will work with Fr John Hayes on the transition plan for coordinating Faith Formation and Youth Ministry in the cluster.  Sherry Clifford will continue working with Youth Ministry including Confirmation.

Yours, in peace,

Colleen Trevisani
