New Children & Youth Director
We welcome our new Children and Youth Director - Don Carlson
The Children and Youth Program Committee is thrilled to announce the hiring of Don Carlson as our new Children and Youth Director. Don will begin his work here at All Saint’s on September 16, 2019.
Don has held similar positions at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in High Point, NC, and St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Ridgefield, CT. Additionally, he has served as the Canon for Youth and Family Ministries in the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York. His work experience also includes director-level positions with the Girl Scouts of Connecticut and the Western Massachusetts Council of Boy Scouts of America.
Don and his wife Kathleen and son Mark are headed to Texas from Portland, Connecticut.
The renewal of the role of Children and Youth Director at All Saints’ came about because of parishioner support during the 2019 pledge campaign to fund this position, the commitment of the Vestry, and the work over the past two years of the members of the Children and Youth Program Committee: Madre Cynthia Caruso, Patricia Goubil-Gambrell, Jessica Johnson, Sarah Peet, Lee Reed, Robert Wells and Kate Wood.
The parish will have an opportunity to welcome and meet Don on Sunday, September 15th, in Kinsolving Parish Hall after the 10:30 AM service.
