I am overjoyed to join the staff at Carolyn’s Place as the new Education Coordinator! Teens and young adults have a difficult path to navigate in our culture. So many voices are encouraging them to settle for a way of life that does not recognize their dignity. One of the missions at Carolyn’s Place is to empower individuals through education. Respect, relationships, and responsibility are the focus. I am grateful for the opportunity to reach out to the youth of our community and begin with them a journey of self-realization. This journey will help our youth to understand their purpose, value, choices, and consequences.
I have a background that leaves me with a burning passion to remind our youth of their goodness. I have been a catechist of the Catholic Faith for fifteen years and a Director of Religious Education for area parishes for thirteen of those years. What a joy it has been to work with the children and families of our community! Those opportunities revealed the struggles that families face in getting children the facts about the facts of life. Additionally, my husband and I are the proud parents of six children (ages 6-19). Being a parent of teenagers, I can see many of the challenges our youth are faced with today. Education is empowerment and I am dedicated to ensuring children and young adults have an opportunity to hear the Gospel of Life.
I am currently scheduling talks with the public, youth service groups, parishes, schools, respect-life groups, and much more. I have scheduled the Tweens Take Charge program for Tuesdays in April and May of 2018. If you would like Carolyn’s Place to give a presentation or if you would like any information about our programs, you can contact me by phone or text 203-695-3999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I am filled with gratitude to be a part of the Carolyn’s Place team and I look forward to serving the community of Waterbury and its surrounding areas.
Sincerely in Christ,
