|Title:||Coordinator of Children's Ministry|
Peggy Kehres has been on staff at Resurrection for 17 wonderful years. Originally hired as a part time assistant for the Religious Education department, she quickly became full time as the program began to grow. She now serves as our Coordinator of Children's Ministries, responsible for overseeing First Eucharist, C.R.E.E.D. (our religious education program for children), Journey with Jesus, Vacation Bible School, Children's Masses and coordinating the hundreds of volunteers that make it all possible. Before coming to Resurrection, Peggy was a stay at home mom in a small Massachusetts town. The Kehres family life revolved around the church, school, and friends. Even though she was originally from Cleveland, the decision to move back to Ohio was a difficult one. Jumping right back into parish life made it easier to call New Albany home.
Her family is the love of her life. She and her husband, Randy, have been members of the Parish since 1999. They have three children, four grandchildren (Sam, Adam, Kyle and Reagan). Her eldest child, Abby, works beside her as our church secretary and choir director. Scott lives and works in Youngstown with his dog, Mason. Her youngest, Cody, serves our country and is married to Erin (Hamlin). The two met on Gospel Road while participating with our Youth Group!
Peggy believes that seeds of faith that are planted at an early age in our children bloom to a deep love of God in adulthood. Nothing is more important to Peggy than having a hand in helping to plant those seeds and a love for Jesus. She is in constant awe of the wonderful volunteers who help bring that love to the children of our parish, and feels so blessed to be part of such a vibrant community.
