A note from our Pastor

Dear Family of Faith,
I write you with some great Easter news! I would like to welcome Marc Laudonio to our Parish Staff as Director of Evangelization!

Marc, alongside his wife Julie and four children (Dominic, Avila, Rosie, and Leo) have been longtime parishioners of IHM. You have likely seen the Laudonio family, as they have been active in most facets of parish life. Their school aged children are all in IHM School, they regularly not only attend but lead volunteers at our Fish Frys, take part in our weekly Faith Formation Nights, volunteer together as a family on our Love Begins Here mission trips, and participate in the Holy Mass together as a family.

With the upcoming Into the Deep initiative, and the ongoing work of Go Make Disciples to transform parish culture, Bishop Hying has rightly emphasized the task of evangelization, bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to others, seeking to convert hearts to move in response to the knowledge of our salvation through Him. Marc’s focus will be creating opportunities for people to encounter Jesus and His Church and grow as disciples as we focus on our parish mission, and essential mission of our faith, to Make Disciples of All Nations.

Marc joins our staff having served as director of Evangelization with more than 15 years of professional ministry experience and will officially begin May 30. He is a natural fit to our parish staff and we are thrilled to not only continue having him as part of our parish community, but to be helping us engage the larger community in discipleship efforts.

Fr. Chad M. Droessler
