Kathleen Ott – Director of Faith Formation
Kathleen directs religious education for the entire St. Francis de Sales parish community. It’s a ministry that involves all ages, and includes facilitating the youth and teen religious education programs, while also coordinating the sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Planning liturgies and coordinating art and environment is also among her responsibilities. Kathleen describes herself as a committed learner who believes it’s not possible to know enough about anything. That explains her participation in the Lay Ecclesial Ministry Formation program through the Diocese of Cleveland; she’s also pursuing a master’s degree in theology from St. Mary Seminary.
