Big Shoes to Fill!

Big shoes to fill!
My name is Vicky Kuehnel and I have been a pre-school teacher in the ECP for many years. I am honored to take the place of Christie Fitts.
I have known and worked under Christie for many years. She was my daughter’s 4 year old pre-school teacher and then my boss for at least 6 years.
Christie ran the ECP like a well-oiled machine and I pray that I can do as good of a job as she has done.
My office is always open to anyone wishing to tour the ECP.


I’m looking for dedicated Catholics with a heart for our teens and their faith journeys. We are in need of 25 amazing adults (ages 19 & up!) to work with our Jr. High and High School students in catechesis, retreats, and Confirmation preparation. Our ministry is vibrant and growing and I want YOU to be part of it. Training is provided. Remember: “God does not call the qualified. He qualifies the called.”
