Our Christian education programs for children and youth are in a time of transition as we say good-bye to several staff members. Janet Babbitt, who will continue as an active St. John’s member with her family, left her position as director of religious education on July 15. Mary Scripko, our part-time religious education assistant, has also decided to step back from her work at St. John’s to focus on her primary calling as a musician. She wrote the letter below to the parish.
My dear St. John’s family,
After careful thought, I’ve decided to step back from my position working with all ages of kids at St. John’s. Music has always been my first passion and priority, and as I grow my business as a teacher and performer, I need to put my efforts toward fulfilling that calling.
The past three years at St. John’s have been truly life changing for me; I’ve met colleagues who are friends, friends who have become like family, and some of the best kids on the planet. I even got married here!
I look forward to popping in from time to time for different events to see you all and catch up. Please keep Kevin and myself in your prayers, as we will keep you all in ours.
With love and appreciation,
