Welcome to Parish Services!
Parish Services is an independent business, which I privately own and operate. I created Parish Services to be a resource to the Catholic Community of the Archdiocese of Detroit. All programs and services are contracted, and all speakers, musicians and facilitators, are degreed, and fully certified ministers. References and referrals are available upon request.
By way of introduction, allow me to share a little bit about myself. I have ministered professionally in the areas of Religious Education and Adult Education, Worship, and Music for over 40 years. I am a spiritual director and I facilitate retreats. I received a Doctor of Ministry from the Graduate Theological Foundation, in South Bend, IN, a M.A. in Pastoral Studies, from Sts. Cyril and Methodius Seminary, Orchard Lake, MI, and a B.A. in Religious Education from St. Mary’s College, Orchard Lake, MI. I also hold a Graduate Certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Dominican Center for Religious Development where I was on staff for two years; teaching and mentoring spiritual direction interns.
My ministry experience includes teaching: Elementary Music, Adult Education, RCIA, and Catechist Formation and my background includes many years of Music Ministry, Directing Religious Education Programs, Worship, Spirituality and Pastoral Care. I’ve been employed at several parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit and I am currently on staff at St. John Fisher Chapel University Parish in Auburn Hills where I work as a pastoral associate. I teach at both Siena Heights University and for the Graduate Theological Foundation of South Bend, IN.
