Joana Schmidt, the newly appointed parish catechetical leader in St. Theresa Parish, Little Egg Harbor, has been working toward her goal of finding what she regards as a “dream position” for quite some time.

With assistance from the Diocesan Scholarship Fund, Schmidt earned an associate’s degree in Catholic Studies and is currently working toward completing her degree in theology in Catholic Distance University.

She began her leadership training working as a catechist for her home parish, St. Francis of Assisi, Brant Beach, where she still volunteers as a third grade catechist. Joana remarked, “I love working with children as a volunteer catechist and had always hoped to make a career out of it.”

Schmidt has two children, Robert, 11, and Leah, 8.  Schmidt said she is excited about her new position in St. Theresa Parish, saying, “I look forward to growing during my time at St. Theresa. I look forward to getting to know the students this fall, and continuing my education.”
