Hi! My name is Mary Cassleman and I will be leading the 1st grade online Faith Formation. In the past 2 years, I have led the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level I class for children 4-5 years old here at St. Mary’s and also at St. Pat’s. While I have taught Faith Formation at other parishes and for higher grades, this will be my first-time teaching 1st grade and first-time leading an online program. Prior to retiring, I was the Business Manager here at St. Mary’s. I have 6 grown children and 15 grandchildren but sadly none of them live in Michigan. I am excited to volunteer as a partner with parents this year- we will all be learning- growing in the faith and joy that comes with knowing God more each day. The new online program, LANE for Kids, is really great and I can’t wait to dive in.
