Family Educator

The role of our Family Educator is to nurture strong and meaningful parish/parent/school relationships and to explore new models of supporting the spiritual, social and educational formation of families.

There are four domains in which our Family Educator works to do this. 
  1. Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing the faith life of parents.
  2. Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing families to the faith life of the school.
  3. Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing families to the faith life of the Parish.
  4. Enhancing family well-being.
