Welcome to Notre Dame Church
A Word from Father Ed…
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
I share with you the news that I have hired two new staff persons, namely, a pastoral associate for liturgy and music and a pastoral associate for evangelization and religious formation.
Our new pastoral associate for liturgy and music is Kathleen MacLean. Kathleen and her husband, Joseph, live in Denver’s capital hill. They are the parents of one child, a daughter, who is a Religious Sister of Mercy, Sr. Miriam. From 2008 until recently Kathleen was the organist and co-director of music for Denver’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. From 1988-2007 she was the choir director, organist, and director of music at St. Matthew Parish in Windham, NH, and at the same time taught music, choir, and band at both the nearby Presentation of Mary Academy and Infant Jesus School. Kathleen has also served as an accompanist, vocal coach, and organist for various Catholic and secular communities. She was educated at the Sorbonne in Paris and the Boston Conservatory of Music. She will formally begin her ministry with us on August 1.
Our new pastoral associate for evangelization and religious formation is David Pipp. David, his wife Jennifer, and their family of six children reside in east Denver. Until now David has been serving as the assistant director of catechesis and Catholic community at Bishop Machebeuf High School. From 2012-2015 he was the director of student life at Franciscan University’s (Steubenville) Study Abroad Program in Gaming, Austria. From 2004-2012 he was the director of evangelization for Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Northglenn, where he oversaw weekly adult education programs for between 400-800 adults as well as the parish’s RCIA, RCIC, and RCIT (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, of Children, and of Teens.) Prior to Immaculate Heart of Mary, from 1998-2003 David taught religion and Catholic life at Bishop Machebeuf High School. He will formally begin his ministry with us on August 7.
Kathleen looks forward to assuming her new ministry of assisting us in the full, conscious, and active celebration of the Eucharists, particularly through music. She’ll be starting up the choir in September. And she’ll be working on recruitment, formation, and scheduling of all the ministers of the Mass.
David looks forward to developing our outreach program to new families, single adults, and neighbors, as well as working with adults, young people, and children in our being formed—each and every single one of us—into the image and likeness of Christ.
I know how much and appreciate that many miss Deacon Chuck, Lillian, and Tomas (as well as Ken), who previously occupied these positions; I know you join me in thanking them for their past service to the parish. Please join me, too, in thanking God for sending us Kathleen and David, in welcoming both of them to Notre Dame Parish, and assuring them of our prayers and friendship.
Don't forget to pick up some grocery gift cards for the leading grocery stores. They make great gifts too. You can purchase yours after all the Masses.
