Hello! I am so excited to be joining SAB as Fundraising. Marco and I have 4 kids!  Our oldest Matthew is in college this Fall and I have three kids here at HSS. Mason (8th), Melia (5th) and Maile (2nd). We have been part of the catholic school community for the last 14 years. We absolutely love being part of this amazing community here at Holy Spirit. We have had such a positive, supportive experience here and we are very grateful. I enjoy volunteering, being involved and attending all the events that bring these wonderful families together. I look forward to meeting many more families and continuing to support our school and community.

Stephanie and her husband David have been parishioners at Holy Spirit since 2010 and have celebrated many milestones in the parish, including their wedding, son Christian's Baptism, and Christian (1st) becoming a HSS Coyote in Fall 2022! My involvement over the years at Holy Spirit has included various liturgical ministry roles, supporting and chairing some of the parish drives, and most recently as a Project Cornerstone volunteer in the classroom. I am also fortunate to serve on the Parish's Pastoral Council providing support to the church and school communities. attending many of the parish programs. I can't wait to help you and your families integrate your faith into your daily lives whether that's through the in-classroom, school-wide, or at-home activities we'll have this year. David, Christian, and I are most often at the 9:30am masses, so please come share any feedback, questions, or ideas for the parish and school!
