Meet Our Teachers!
Pre-K and Kindergarten
Ms. Maggie has been a catechetical teacher with us since 2011 and brings tons of enjoyment and fun in her classroom! With songs, arts & crafts, and laughs happening in her classroom, the littles will surely learn how much Jesus loves us!
1st & 2nd Grade
This is Tiffany’s first year as a teacher. She enjoys teaching our young 1st graders foundational lessons. Incorporating arts & crafts with the curriculum as well as conversation and fun around the Bible and prayer! She truly enjoys 1st grade as there are so many new things for the kids to learn at this stage that she feels is the beginning of their education and by making it fun they are eager to understand!
3rd & 4th Grade
This is Ms. Linnea’s second year teaching with us. But, with her history of teaching music during the school year, most of the students came into her classroom already knowing her! She brings such valuable knowledge of our faith and she does a great job sharing her past experiences with the youth. We can also find Ms. Linnea cantering during the weekend Masses!
5th & 6th Grade
Miss Katherine has been a catechetical teacher with us since 2016. She started off her journey helping with our Youth Ministry group for 2 years then moved to our 2nd grade class and now is with our 5th and 6th graders. With her love of children, she brings so much fun and enjoyment into her classroom!
Gigi came to us from California and began teaching 3rd and 4th grade here at St Mary’s in 2017. She transitioned to Youth Ministry in 2020. Gigi loves our youth and believes they will secure the future of our church.

Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
We prepare for these Sacraments in January/February of each year, with lessons and retreats going till April of that same year. First Holy Communion will be during the 10:30 Mass in late April or early May.
Requirements to receive these sacraments include:
If your child is ready to start the Sacrament process, please contact Kim Leininger, DRE.
The involvement of parents, teachers, friends, and community members in The Liturgy provides a deeper sense of belonging, identity, and perhaps security for your child.
In order to become an altar server, one must have completed the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
Once your child has gone through a training, they will be added to the yearly schedule. You can find the most current schedule at the top of this page. By becoming an altar server, this is a commitment to serve on the altar when scheduled. If your child cannot attend, they must find a substitute.
