I have been a member of St. Terrence for over 10 years. In my former Parish I was a Eucharistic minister, a Catechist and member of the bake team. We provided treats for any occasion. My spiritual home is very important to me. I came to St. Terrence after I moved to Alsip. It was a snowy, cold day. My first impression of the Church was our Lord on the Cross above the Altar. The parishioners were friendly  and I got to know them  more by attending the 11.00 am Mass. Other family members have joined the Church since then. It’s a comforting experience and the Choir is simply great.

            I am a widow and my husband passed away 10 years ago. I have a son, a daughter and three grandchildren. I retired from St. Xavier University 15 years ago. After retirement I was busy with family matters. I am excited to be part of the Pastoral Council. I like to see our Parish grow and bloom.
