Rachael O'Connor

Parish Pastoral Council

Tell us about yourself:
My husband, Mike, and I were both raised Catholic and feel blessed to be a part of the St James community with our family for over 25 years. Our four children have gone through Religious Ed / St James School, and our three youngest currently attend Saint Viator High School. I love to seek participation in this vibrant parish whenever possible, including a weekly Bible Study, and by serving as Lector and Eucharistic Minister. We are so blessed with the variety of opportunities to adore Christ, and to learn more about our rich faith with programs offered at St James. My Catholic faith, living it, and continuing to orient my life toward Christ is a priority to me.

When did you start serving at St. James?
I started to become more actively involved at SJS when my children started attending in 2011, and then after participating in CRHP (Women’s Welcome Retreat) in 2012, I began to seek more intentional involvement in the parish.

Why are you passionate about serving at St. James?
God made us to know Him, love Him and serve Him, and I pray that being a member of the PPC helps me achieve each of these spiritual goals more deeply. I look forward to helping parishioners know what St James offers to guide them to grow in their love for Jesus, so they can love and live their faith.
