Barb Bodengraven - After a career as a writer and communications professional specializing in promoting faith-based organizations, Barb jumped into the part-time position of serving as our parish administrator in May of 2019. She has spent a lifetime of, as she says, "managing details and deadlines," and is now joyfully transitioning those skills to our church office. She confesses to always having loved making miniature books, so creating our church bulletin every week is a dream come true.
Barb has an English degree from Boston College and a Master's in Theological Studies from Weston Jesuit School of Theology (now the Boston College School of Theology & Ministry). She is the author of The Sacred Shed on the Edge of the Ravine, a spiritual memoir of everyday life that highlights the sacred landscape of Boston's North Shore. In her spare time, she facilitates "Writing as a Spiritual Practice" and "Writing Your Sacred Story" workshops at retreat houses and other venues.
