Goodbye, Hello!

Kelly and Vanessa
KELLY BOURKE:
Ah, somehow it is the end of my term with the Faith Connections team... the time really did fly by! I have so enjoyed spending this time working with all of you! I can only hope my next ministry is as filled with blessings as this one has been!
Thank-you, young adult community, for your energy and willingness to look for something new;
Thank-you, volunteers, for your great generosity;
Thank-you ministry partners and collaborators for making the projects even better;
and Thank-you, Sisters, for this blessing it has been to have worked for and with you in your mission and ministry;
Thank-you, friends!
It is so good to be welcoming back Vanessa after her year of studies! Please join me in welcoming her back to the adventure that is the Faith Connections ministry...
VANESSA NICHOLAS-SCHMIDT:
Thank you for all your positive encouragement and prayers over my time away! Studying full time helped to illuminate for me the vibrant tapestry of Theology. I also learned a lot about myself and ministry during my 3 month internship as a hospital Chaplain. It has been a blessed year indeed! And I know the one to come will also be rich.
I'm so excited to be back at Faith Connections! I'm looking forward to seeing many old friends and meeting new ones!
A big thank you to Kelly for all your hard work. A big thank you to the Sisters, staff, and young adults for all you do for Faith Connections.
