Our St. Barbara Parish family welcomes Sarah Swauger, the newest member of our Parish staff. Effective September 9, Sarah will be assuming the position of Coordinator of Religious Education. Her responsibilities will include direction of our Religious Education program for children in Grades 1-5 as well as sacramental preparation for children. Sarah will be taking over from Staff member Linda Ruffton, who will be retiring after more than eight years in the CRE role. During this time of transition, Linda will be remaining on staff to assist Sarah as she adjusts to her new position.
Sarah comes to us from Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, and is a recent graduate of Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. She holds a BA degree in Theology and Psychology.
Welcome, Sarah! And many, many thanks to Linda for her extraordinary contribution to our Religious Education program.
