I am pleased to announce that Mary Shea Quach will join our GSL clergy-staff team as Interim Director of Children’s Formation. She is currently working on her Masters in School Counseling and has worked with the early childhood program at St. Mary’s Episcopal School as well as with 4th and 5th graders at Church of the Holy Communion. She comes ready and excited to connect with families and their kiddos and is gearing up for VBS and parent socials and many good ways to keep the GSL family connected. Her first day is Tuesday, June 1, and she will be with us the months of June, July and August as the search for the Director of Children’s Formation continues. Please help me welcome Mary Shea! –the Rev. Laura F. Gettys
I am so excited to be serving as the Interim Director of Children’s Formation this summer at Grace St. Luke’s! I am a lifetime member of the Episcopal Church and some of my fondest memories growing up are from EYC, Happening, and many weeks spent at St. Columba during the summers. I know how formative these years are for children and I hope to make an impact during my time with them!
I am excited to have some opportunities to get back in person this summer and I hope you will all join in! I am looking forward to hosting some parent socials so that I can get to know as many people as possible and hear from you about what you would like this summer to look like at GSL. I am also so excited to work on a non-traditional VBS and have your children come to church on Wednesday nights this summer. I have lots of plans, but mostly I am just excited to get to know all the children that make this congregation so wonderful!
