I have been a parishioner at CCC since joining the choir in 1991 when I was 8 years old. Since that day, CCC has been a second home for me. Growing up, the choir quickly became a second family to me and I had so many wonderful opportunities to sing in such amazing places throughout the country and the world while making lifelong friends who I am still friends with to this day. I love that while many things have changed over the years, music is still core to our church.

I was also very active in the youth group, taking multiple mission trips and participating in many church activities. I also had the privilege of being on several Diocesan committees and seeing how things work from the inside out.

I went away for college and grad school and in both instances, I was reminded of how unique a place CCC is. While it has a “high church” feel to many, it is incredibly welcoming to EVERYONE. I frequently hear people talk about not liking organized religion and/or churches but immediately look over and say “…but not your church! Your church is amazing!”

I am so proud of how far we have come as a church and would love the opportunity to be a part of continuing to grow in our values. Our more recent embrace with our five pillars is a wonderful step in the right direction but, of course, these changes cannot happen over night. They require a great deal of self-reflection and growth and I would like to be a part of that process in any way I can be of help.
