Message from Jeanne Jakubowski

August 25, 2016

Dear Parish Catechetical Leaders, Staff and Catechists,

Through my years here at the Pastoral Center, God has blessed me with the wonderful relationships I have formed with so many of you. When I joined the Department of Catechetical Services 18 years ago, I pledged in my heart to serve Lord by serving all of you, in the image of Christ the Servant whose painting hangs above my desk. The journey, from that day to the present, has brought me many fulfilling hours of working in collaboration with and for all of you. 

And so it is with both regret for those I will be leaving, and joy in the new life that stands before me, that I announce my retirement, which will be effective on September 9, 2016.  My blessings and prayers will continue to be with you. Please know that I will always carry you in my heart.

If you would like to contact me, you can do so by calling 972-270-3195. If you don’t get me right away, please leave a message.

Jeanne Jakubowski, MTS

Message from the Director

On behalf of the Diocese, I wish to express my sincere gratitude to Jeanne for the gifts she has shared with all of us.  I wish her all the best as she moves into this next chapter of her life alongside her husband, children and grandchildren.  May your life continue to be a reflection of God’s mercy.
