The Madeleine Parish in Northeast Portland welcomes two new staff members during the busy Advent season.
Kelly Johnson, new business manager, has 10 years previous experience with the Archdiocese of Seattle in a large parish environment and decades of experience in accounting, human resources, computer network administration, and property and construction. Previous business manager Tom Johnston moved to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Aloha.
Also new is Gary Ware, maintenance manager, who has decades of facilities and maintenance experience and expertise with Portland area non-profit agencies.
Both of the employees started at the end of November and are busy helping Father Mike Biewend with this energetic parish, and buildings and grounds.
