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.
CATECHISTS, WE NEED YOU!
I’m looking for dedicated Catholics with a heart for our teens and their faith journeys.

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.”

“An authentic faith – which is never comfortable or completely personal – always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave this earth somehow better than we found it.” - Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium (183)

ACTS Retreat for Men
ACTS retreat for men are three-days; a three night Catholic retreat with spiritual direction provided during the weekend. Talks and activities focus on Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service (ACTS). Holy Scripture and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are the guides for the retreat where you have the opportunity to strengthen your faith and its application in your daily life, to renew yourself spiritually and to build lasting friendships. Retreatants return with great friendships, a deeper understanding of their faith and how to live it out on a daily basis, and a desire to become more involved in their parish faith communities. The next men’s ACTS retreat is set for the weekend of September 4-7, and it is being directed by Bob McCormick and a staff of more than 30 men. Contact Bob for more information at email@example.com.
