Mary Ward

What I Do:

I support the Pastoral Staff and Business Manager, which includes special projects and some financial functions. One of my primary tasks will be organizing & maintaining our parishioner data base.

About me:

I’m blessed to be from a large Catholic family and part of our family of parishes. My husband, Andy, & I live in Bellbrook and have been members of St. Francis of Assisi for about 10 years. Our children are grown and reside in various cities from coast to coast, so we have great vacations! My husband & I are both lectors and participate in many areas of parish life. I’m active in the women’s retreat ministry. I’ve met so many wonderful faithful people through the church, activities, and ministries!

Favorite Saint:

The Blessed Virgin Mary, who said “Yes” to God even in the face of adversity. I can only imagine how overwhelming that must have been to such a young woman, and how closely she would have had to walk with God, through His Holy Spirit, for her entire life. Think of the extreme joy and sorrow she experienced. She is an awesome example for us.

Favorite Bible Quote:

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
