With the news of Joe Trainor's coming departure, we began the search for his successor. We are pleased to announce that Carolyn Trumble will be taking up the good work done by Joe. Carolyn's first day will be July 20th whereby her and Joe can work together, Joe can train her in the details of the work.
Carolyn has many years in pastoral ministry including her most recent work in Brazil as a Marynoll Missioner, preceded by work at St. Cecilia's in Beaverton, and extensive work in youth ministry at St. Pius X in Portland, Our Lady of the Lake in Lake Oswego, and St. John the Apostle in Oregon City. She also was the Director of Events and Evangelization at Fr. Bernard Youth Center in Mt. Angel. Clearly, she comes to us with a wealth of experience. She has a reputation as a collaborative team player and a motivator who is organized, creative, and disciplined. We are very excited to have her on board our ministry team.
She will more formally introduce herself soon after her arrival. Please join in praying for her and her new beginning with our parish community.
Joe will continue to work through this month which means that both Joe and Carolyn will be sharing an office. Please pray for Joe as he begins his new adventure. Thank you, Joe! Job well done!
Fr. William Holtzinger
