DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN’S MUSIC EDUCATION:  Deedee Sihvonen, a retired elementary education teacher, serves as our Children’s Choir Director.  She loves children and relates to them with kindness and patience.  Each Sunday morning, she works with our parish’s children about a half-hour teaching them music that, when internalized, will support their awareness of God’s love, not only for themselves, but for the whole world.
