Catholic parishes add coordinator of youth discipleship


BENNINGTON — Mary Drew is the new coordinator of youth discipleship at Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales and St. John the Baptist Parishes.

The church community welcomes her aboard. She and her husband, Simon, moved to Bennington 14 years ago, with their three sons, Peter, Liam and Jack. "I have been a stay at home mom for most of their lives but have 'worked' in many volunteer positions both with school and the church," she said. "I hold an associates degree in radiologic technology and a bachelor of science in health services management."

Drew added, "I will be working closely with (Director of Faith Formation) Kathy Murphy as we move forward to help our youth navigate what it means to be Catholic in this ever changing world and especially as the diocese moves toward confirming the youth in sixth grade. I'm looking forward to taking on this new and exciting challenge of youth discipleship with your help and support as the next generation comes up to lead our church into the future."
