Director, Faith Formation
Colleen Jagde has been in ministry since 1985, when her Pastor, Fr. Horgan, tapped her on the shoulder to become a Catechist, which was her jumping off point into professional ministry. Not long after that tap, Colleen became a part-time Youth Minister and eventually became the full-time Coordinator of Religious Education.
She has worked in the "corporate" world for several years but always felt drawn to work with youth and their families to help them on their faith journey. She attended Caldwell University for religious studies. She has worked in two other parishes since that call to ministry. During her other ministry assignments, when she could, she would worship at the Church of Saint Anne. It was a place she found peace and spiritual nourishment and now feels very blessed to be serving here. Her family and journeying with people towards a deeper relationship with the Person of Christ are her joys.
