It is with mixed emotions I announce that Damian Zynda has accepted to position of Director of Ignatian Identity at McQuaid Jesuit High School and will be leaving her position here at Transfiguration on June 30, 2016.
THANK YOU DAMIAN for all you have done for our parish community over the last 12 years. The limitation of human words does not allow me my deep appreciation for all you have done for our community. Please know my heart and soul are filled with thankful praise for all the gifts you have shared with the people of Transfiguration and yours truly.
May we pray that all Damian does as the Director of Ignatian Identity at McQuaid Jesuit High School be filled with many blessings.
What is next?
- I offered Anne Gallagher the position of Director of Formation/ Pastoral Associate for Youth and she has accepted.
- I asked Deacon Eric Bessette to become the Coordinator of Ignatian Spirituality (19th Annotations) and he has accepted this responsibility as an addition to his diaconal responsibilities.
- As Director of Formation Anne will oversee the Adult Formation Program and Meg Kastner will assist her in the implementation of the Program.
I have shared this plan with the Finance Council and Pastoral Council and I believe this plan stays true the 2002 mandate of the Pastoral Council to offer an all-encompassing adult and spiritual formation ministry; obviously there are details to be worked out.
Let us continue to pray for peace and the end of terrorism in our world!
In peace and courage,
