Please welcome our new pastoral council members!
Holy Spirit Catholic Community has been an important fixture in my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up going to church at Our Lady of Sorrows and attending the Catholic school K-6th grade. When I returned to the community after completing my undergraduate degree in teaching, I was excited to continue practicing and sharing my faith here, eventually becoming a catechist, RCIA sponsor, and lector, all while raising my children in the ways of the faith. My Catholic faith and this community have provided me love, support and faith formation, all the while creating a firm foundation for my values as a person and as an educator. This foundation has led me to earn a doctorate in education leadership and to volunteer in numerous capacities within the church and the greater community. As a member of the pastoral council, I would strive to keep the traditions of this faith community that have shaped my faith and values, as well as striving to make the community one in which our future grows and builds on these foundations. Thank you for your consideration and support in this position and God bless!
Rocío “Rosy” Armendariz
My name is Rocío Armendariz, people call me Rosy and I love that nickname. I grew up in Mexico in a Catholic family, for which I have to thank God and my mother. I have lived in Rock Springs for almost 20 years. I met and married the love of my life Edy, right here and we have 3 beautiful children together.
I have gradually become involved in ministries of the church in which God calls me to serve. I’m the coordinator of the Hispanic Intercession Prayer Group created by Father Emilio and I’m also teaching RCIA Spanish classes for first time, which makes me feel very grateful. My joy is to serve God throught the beautiful family my husband and I have made and to serve my parish and our community as much as I can, as well as to help Deacon Luis in the different Hispanic activities in which he needs an extra hand. I have taken an e-course at the University of Dayton VLCFF in the Formation of Faith in which I have obtained my certificate and I’m currently taking another e-course about Bible Study.
Thank you for considering having me as part of the parish pastoral council, that alone it is a great honor to me.
