I am SO blessed to be a part of St. Francis Parish! I previously worked in music ministry at St. Ambrose Parish in Brunswick and my home parish of St. Monica in Garfield Heights. I was born into a large Catholic family of 10 and currently attend Cleveland State University for music education. Most importantly, I have a deep love for the Eucharist and feel I am privileged to have a role that helps lead people into an encounter with the Divine.
In his Summa Theologica, St. Thomas Aquinas writes, "Music is the exaltation of the mind derived from things eternal, bursting forth in sound." I pray that we as a community continue to deepen our love for Christ and ceaselessly exalt Him with the gifts He has bestowed on us.
