Directress of Religious Education

Jean Zielinski

Tri-Parish Rectory Office

She puts her whole heart in the Religious Education of the children.  The children are learning to be good Catholics.  They also have many projects during the year, including a Christmas Pageant, helping with the Easter Community Dinner by coloring the eggs, and last year, added a Family Night. Jean's "reward" is when she watches those children make their First Communion!
