I have always enjoyed the Easter season because of the whole notion of renewal and new life as we celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection, as well as mark the end of a long winter season. Yet, this Easter, I felt this whole idea of rebirth and new beginnings to be ever so true in my own life, and that mainly has to do with my new journey at the Catholic Courier.
On April 6, I joined the staff here as the New Media Coordinator. In this position, I’ll be working on the websites and social media outlets for both the Courier and El Mensajero Católico. In addition, I’ll also be covering some of the news and events going on in the diocese.
Since this is my first blog, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to introduce myself. While I may be new to the Courier, I’m not new to the media Rochester scene. Prior to joining the Courier staff, I worked for eight years at News10NBC as a news and Web producer.
I’m also not new to the diocese. I have called it home for more than 30 years as an active parishioner of the Gates Catholic Community at St. Helen Church. I enjoy singing in our community choir and participating in our Sisters in Christ women’s ministry. I’m also currently preparing for our cluster’s first women’s retreat, "A Spiritual Spa," which is this Saturday. I am a product of the great Catholic schools in Rochester, as I attended the former St. Helen School and graduated from St. John Fisher College.
I’m thrilled to be a part of the staff at the Courier. Now that you know more about me, I hope to learn more about you as we journey through our faith together.
