Three bright new lights shine at CCL Central!

I am happy to announce that we have increased the number of couples we have taught by 10% over last year! However, this growth has led to a strain on CCL Central staff due to an increase in consulting calls, outreach, enrollment and request from dioceses. As such, we have added three new staff members to support our volunteers, donors, and students: Clara Vincent, Forest Hempen, and Emma Golias.

Clara is our new Donor Relations Manager, a position recently created to reach out to our donors and invite them to become more involved with our mission. Clara hails from Washington state and is the third oldest of eight siblings. She recently graduated from Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom College in Ontario, Canada where she studied history and philosophy in the Catholic tradition.

Forest is our new Communications & Marketing Associate. She will work alongside Ann Gundlach, Director of Communications, to assist in the creation of Family Foundations, social media initiatives and volunteer communications. Forest graduated from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, with a degree in theology and a minor in public relations. She recently completed a year abroad in Mexico teaching English to kindergarten students.

As our new Office Manager, Emma will be serving our members and volunteers in the customer service department and will assist Don Regan with accounting and purchasing. Emma has been married to her husband Paul for 17 years and they have two children, Katherine and James, ages 16 and 14. She is excited to make the switch to the non-profit world!

God sent each of these ladies to us by different paths to fill the most urgent needs of CCL. Trusting in God, we prayed for him to send us the people to help in these areas and, in his perfect time, he provided. If you are in the Cincinnati area please come by and say hi.
