Farewell to our Dear Kathy Bergeron

Wednesday, May 24, 2023

After almost three decades as part of our Saint Gregory Family, our beloved Kathy Bergeron is retiring. Kathy has served as a volunteer and employee in several capacities throughout the years. Her work passion, ethics, dedication and love for Saint Gregory is evident in all she does.

Being one of the key participants in the renovation of our beautiful Church, Kathy is leaving her footprint all around us. As she usually says: “All I needed to hear was: Monsignor would like you to do, and I could not say no.”

We wish the best to Kathy and we are sure God will continue blessing her and her family.

We love you and will miss you.

Big Thank You for all your hard work and for making St.Gregory truly great!
