Location: Holden, Massachusetts, United States

I am employed by the Diocese of Worcester as an Administrative Assistant and Ecclesiastical Notary in the Tribunal Office. I have an undergraduate degree in history and a Master's Degree in Pastoral Ministry as well as two certificates from UDayton's VLCFF in Adult Formation Leadership and Social Justice. I was recently board certified as the first Director of Adult Faith Formation for the Diocese of Worcester. I am a parishioner at St. Mary Parish in Jefferson, Massachusetts where I serve as a lector and member of the RCIA Team. I have also taught 9th grade religious education and served on several church committees and in a variety of liturgical roles. My other great passions in life are reading, writing fiction, and totally spoiling my adorable calico Main Coon cat. My debut novel, Kelegeen (historical fiction written under my pen name, Eileen O'Finlan), was released by BWL Publishing, Inc. on March 1, 2018 and the sequel, Erin's Children, was released on December 1, 2020. Both books present the Catholic faith as strong components of the characters' lives. I am currently working on my next novel.
