Meet the new chairperson of our SFDS Stewardship Committee! You’ve seen her but even more likely you’ve heard her. You will recognize Laura’s face but also her beautiful singing voice which is frequently featured at 9 a.m. Mass. Laura joined the contemporary choir about 15 years ago and has been a driving force in the SFDS music ministry from the beginning. She has been involved in music planning, playing the bass guitar, arranging, and inthe past has worked with some of our teens by helping to organize a youth music group called “Festival of Praise”.
She has volunteered in several other capacities at St. Francis as well. Most recently she was on the Project 2017 committee and lent her design talents choosing colors and materials. Several years ago she started the M.O.M.S. group (Ministry of Mother’s sharing). She does graphic design and has helped us by creating flyers and posters for different SFDS events. Laura and her husband Fran have 5 daughters! 2 attended our parish school and during that time Laura headed up the visual arts program.
Laura graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in business and psychology. She loves the marketing segment of business and is a talented artist and musician. She has taught voice lessons and has had her own band. She loves the outdoors and outdoor sports like skiing and hiking.
We are very excited that Laura is once again sharing her leadership skills with us by taking over the Stewardship Committee. She is a wonderful example of a person who has shared her time and talents with our parish and will continue to help to be an inspiration to others. Thank you Laura for stepping up and taking this on!
