Diocese Welcomes New Coordinator of Faith Formation
SAGINAW — In another step forward in strengthening evangelizing efforts in the Diocese of Saginaw, Peg McEvoy has been hired as the diocesan coordinator of faith formation. For the past five years, McEvoy has served as the associate director for evangelization and family catechesis for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. She will begin her new role on July 16.
As coordinator of faith formation, McEvoy will report to the director of the Center for Ministry, Dr. Dan Osborn, and collaborate with parishes and schools in fostering quality faith formation for the people of the diocese.
“I am excited by the enthusiasm, vast expertise, and pastoral spirit that Peg brings to our diocese,” Osborn said.
McEvoy obtained a master’s degree in pastoral ministry from Boston College after receiving her Bachelor of Arts in elementary education at Purdue University. She served in a variety of assignments at the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, including the development of workshops for forming and sustaining parish evangelization teams, the crafting of Right of Christian Initiation of Adults content guidelines, the promotion of quality Catholic Bible studies for adults, as well as several additional fruitful efforts within the Office of Catholic Education and the Office of Multicultural Ministry.
“I am thrilled and honored to be joining the Diocese of Saginaw,” McEvoy said. “Bishop Cistone, Dr. Osborn and the whole faith formation team, both past and present, have provided me a solid foundation upon which to continue building an even deeper sense of discipleship in the diocese. I look forward to meeting people and learning what the needs are as we move forward together.”
