Times they are a changin’!

It is with sadness I share that three of our parish staff are moving on to new adventures. Shelby Vaske, our Faith Formation Director for grades 1 – 5 is retiring, Deb Rudolph, our Pastoral Minister is retiring, and Adam Vonderahe our Business Manager, he and his family are moving to Ohio to be closer to family.
Shelby and Deb are departing at the end of May and Adam will leave mid July. While I have only ministered with them for a year, I know they will be missed. Each of them has done a remarkable ministry here at St. Francis and have left the parish in a better place.
Melissa Fox is moving from her current position of Faith Formation Director for grades 6 – 11 and Youth Ministry to take on our Faith Formation Director position for grades 1 -5.
Bonnie Van Heel is stepping down as SFX School Principal and returning to our second grade classroom.
Heidi Schloe, one of our third grade teachers will be our SFXS Principal. Thank you to Melissa, Bonnie, and Heidi for ministry well done. May God bless them and us in their new ministry. Job postings will be found on our website in the next couple of weeks. Please let others know of our open positions in Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry and Parish Administration.
