Holy Comforter Announcement
August 6, 2021
Dear Holy Comforter Family,
I wish to give thanks for the wonderful ministry these past 3 years from Brynn Pacitti who has been our Director of Children’s Ministries. Brynn, with the support of our other formation leadership, has helped develop an outstanding curriculum in our Sunday School, starting with Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for our youngest, to Godly Play for our K–3rd graders, and Faith in Action for our 4th and 5th graders. This age-appropriate learning model in our Sunday School is the beginning of life-long learning in Christian life at Holy Comforter. Brynn will be concluding her work at Holy Comforter at the end of August and she seeks to give more attention to her growing family and work as an educational consultant.
Patti Boerger
I also wish to give thanks for the compassionate ministry that Patti Boerger has given to our nursery-aged children and families. Patti has helped create a loving, safe, and caring environment among our youngest children and families. She has brought an enthusiasm and grace to our whole ministry by additionally supporting our external communications on social media and in the local press. Patti and Brynn were the organizers that made our wildly successful and needed Drive-Thru Live Nativity happen, which helped over 1,000 people in the Vienna area celebrate Christmas safely when there were no in-person options. Patti will sustain her position until we can find a new coordinator. She is moving back to her communications work in a national campaign promoting paper use over plastic. 

Holy Comforter will be seeking to fill these positions immediately with options for either two part-time positions or one full-time position. Anyone with a passion for children’s and family Christian and spiritual formation is welcome to apply. Please email me at jstrand@holycomforter.com if you know of a person who might be an excellent fit for such a ministry.
