A Message from Kat/Welcoming Sabrina!

As I prepare to start my maternity leave, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the wonderful words of encouragement as I start this new chapter in my life's journey. I am looking forward to what motherhood has in store and am grateful for your continued prayers of support. I am happy to welcome Sabrina Chiefari, who has joined our ministry as Interim Program Director. Sabrina brings with her both passion and creativity for young adult ministry. She is an Environmental Educator, Laudato Si Animator, and a happily practicing Roman Catholic. Please join me in welcoming her to our ministry.

With gratitude, Kat Ryba

A message from Sabrina:

Since 2005, Fontbonne Ministries’ Faith Connections programming has provided a welcoming home for young adults to encounter Christ in our diverse neighbours, through our studies and workplaces, and among each other. The first event I attended was a “Tap on Tour” somewhere in 2006/2007, when it was still taking place. In my (still in progress) journey as a young adult, I always looked forward to what Theology on Tap, Christ in Culture, Hike & Prayer, or other Faith Connections event was on the horizon. I have been a happy participant of this ministry, either as an event attendee or facilitator, and look forward to the next year as its Interim Program Director.

I am thrilled to join the Faith Connections ministry and continue its offering of opportunities and events for young adults to connect and build community. I am most grateful to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto for their founding and ongoing support of such a unique and meaningful young adult ministry. And I hope to see you soon!

take care,
Sabrina
