Staff Member: Maggie Stopka
The witness, love and experience of Jesus Christ in my family, with friends and faith communities have led me to share that faith life with others. I have spent most of my life working in and for the Church in many communities throughout the United States, as teacher, mentor, volunteer and staff member. Each faith community has gifted me with a deeper understanding and love for who God is, who I am, our relationship with each other and how I am called to live out that relationship in our world.
A few years ago, as I was walking down the halls of St. Matthew School, I asked the question:” Where would I really like to be working?” The answer in my heart was” full time at St. Matthew.” My prayer was answered. In my position as Coordinator of Liturgy, Pastoral Care, Justice and Human Dignity, I am blessed to be able to work with not only the faith community at St. Matthew and others with three loves in my life, the Eucharist, the sick and elderly and those who are on the fringe of society here and throughout the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the staff and serving the people of St. Matthew and beyond.
