Adult Faith Formation

Diane Swinarski, Director of Adult Faith Formation and Co-Coordinator for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) for the parish, has been a member of our staff for 17 years. Her responsibilities include adult faith formation for ages 18 and over, RCIA, and Book Club. Prior to her current position, Diane served this parish as Director of Youth Ministry and Confirmation for 14 years. Previously, she worked for the Diocese of Manchester. Diane completed a 3-year Lay Ministry Formation study program at St. Anselm College and received a certificate in Servant Leadership in 2008.

Diane has been a member of St. Jude Church since 1993. “I love St. Jude parish because I find it to be warm and welcoming. It is a small parish with a big heart, meeting many needs in the community and offering activities for all ages. Being a convert to Catholicism, and being amazed by the beauty, depth and treasures of the Catholic faith, my hope is that I can help people to see and value these treasures as they discover the joy of a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, our Lord.”
