Blessings of peace and joy to you and your families.
I write to inform you that Charlene Vig will not be joining our parish staff after this weekend. After nearly seven years of dedicated service to our parish family of St. John the Baptist, Charlene has decided to discontinue as the Youth Minister and a staff member for a personal reason.
As the Youth Minister, Charlene worked hard with a team of parishioners and youth leaders to prepare some of our young compatriots for Confirmation and a faith-based educational and social formation.
On behalf of all parishioners, especially the youth, I thank Charlene Vig, for her ministry at St. John the Baptist. We all wish her well; we also hope that her plans will still enable her to keep serving her parish in some other capacities.
Meanwhile, Charlene’s intention is to volunteer her time to work with our Confirmation group till they are confirmed in March. We again, appreciate this gesture.
Relatedly, we will start looking for her replacement for our youth soon. Hence, if anyone has suggestions about youth ministry in the parish, they are free to let me know or contact any of our Faith Formation Commission members.
Also, if anyone feels called to work with our exciting young people in the parish and meet the requirements that will be set for it, let the person consider applying.
Service to God, the church, and one’s parish are always excellent and rewarding.
