This Sunday, our wonderful Parochial school held a showcase in Neglia hall in celebration of Catholic School’s week. Teachers were on hand to talk about their classes, projects and ideas. There was coffee, there were treats and most of all a wonderful atmosphere of great enthusiasm.
Maria Smoak has long been at the heart of St. Peter’s Hispanic Ministry. She has built it from it’s infancy to what it is today. So many people in the Hispanic community have found their Church home at St. Peter’s because of her, and she has been a blessing to the whole Parish.
She is passionate in her faith, in her desire to help and her willingness to endlessly listen. While she remains passionate, after years of hard work, Maria is retiring from St. Peter’s staff. We wish her so much joy in this new phase of her life, and we know we will look forward to encountering her in her parish.
