What do I do at St. Paul’s? I co-chair the Education committee with Jolie, teach Sunday School, care for babies and toddlers in the nursery, greet folks on Sunday especially if they have children, co-facilitate the HIIWYS group, serve as substitute secretary for Ad Council... "Triple Duty Judi" doesn't begin to cover it!
What excites me most about my job? The smiles and hugs from the children! Also, having what seems like just a good idea turn out to be a great adventure, like our re-enactment of the Last Supper a few years ago and sharing Christmas with the Congregation through art projects.
