When we moved to Mantua, Sr.Jenni reached out to get me involved in Vacation Bible School and then to teach CCD. Eventually that led me into full time ministry. I became a Director of Religious Education. That was 39 years ago! I'm still in the business of serving the Lord. Sr. Jenni, you have touched many. God bless you for all of the good you have done in doing the Lord's work. Rest in peace!
