Upcoming Events:

Life Teen Summer 2017 Mission Trip: Servants 4 Christ

Save the date! Servants for Christ (S4C) is a local service project local parishes participate in. S4C is a week-long experience that includes community service during the day and retreat portions during the evening. Adults are also needed to chaperone and lead work crews of teenagers as they work on projects including painting, yard work, indoor/outdoor clean-up, home maintenance and repair on existing homes, helping with children at daycare centers and helping at centers that distribute food to the needy. No experience necessary! After the work day, evening programs will be filled with activities, music, skits, videos testimonies from teens, motivational speakers, and prayer. This is a great project because it is local, inexpensive, and hosted at one of the participating parishes. It also makes an impact with our own parishioners and neighbors. Interested?

Meet Mary Bacher, Director of Faith Formation for Teens and Young Adults

mary semenczuk

Mary oversees the Teen and Young Adult Ministries at St. Hilary. Mary has felt called to a career in ministry since she was a high school student where she was active in the Life Teen program at St. Mary’s in Hudson, Ohio. She is delighted to be at St. Hilary and looks forward to the many blessings that will come from working with the youth and young adults of the parish.

Mary attended John Carroll University in University Heights, Ohio, earning a BA in Theology and Religious Studies and minors in both Catholic Studies and Sociology. While attending John Carroll University, Mary remained active in her faith and participated in Campus Ministry, Immersion Experiences to Camden New Jersey, Immokalee Florida, and Managua Nicaragua. She also spent her Friday evenings in outreach to the community through John Carroll’s homeless ministry. After graduating from John Carroll, Mary worked for the Catholic Extension Young Adult Leader Initiative where she served as a Campus Minister at Radford University in Radford, Virginia for two years. During this time she earned her MA in Religious Education with a concentration in Youth and Young Adult Ministry.

She enjoys traveling, mission trips, singing, yoga, retreats, and being outdoors. She also has a special place in her heart for the Jesuits and loves learning more about Pope Francis.

She believes it is an honor to be here to help teenagers and young adults develop a meaningful relationship with God and to assist them in better understanding their Catholic faith. She hopes to spread the joy and love of Christ with all those she encounters and looks forward to meeting you!
