Karen is our Parish Administrator and just recently led the Sunday morning Bible Study that concluded in May. She will tell you that one her favorite titles for God is the Great Puzzle Maker, and her coming to St. Mary’s is the latest piece that God has added to the puzzle of her life.
Over the past 35 years, the puzzle pieces of Karen’s ministry have been numerous, from serving as the Director of the East Bay CYO Youth Center in the 80’s, to the Director of Youth Ministry and Retreat Leader at the La Sallette Retreat House in the 90’s, to most recently birthing and growing a Women’s Ministry at a local parish. Karen’s Master’s degree in Biblical Studies and years of experience in administration in ministry have taught her that the church should never look like just another business. Rather, we should reflect the One we follow, Jesus, the Christ.
She enjoys being outdoors; biking, swimming and walking the many parks and trails of Rhode Island.
