Thank You, Mary Voges!

With a mixture of sadness and joy, we say goodbye to Mary Voges after 13 years of service as our parish Pastoral Associate. Mary has performed various duties in this role and served several OLMCC pastors through the years. We rejoice with Mary’s decision to pursue other interests and have more time to enjoy her family. She has been a wonderful office colleague and friend to Angelese and me. Mary, you will be missed!  - Fr. Mark
