Staff Member: Karen Ball
Director of Youth and Family Faith Formation
Karen is a Duluth native who has been a parishioner at St. Lawrence for most of her life. She has been working with the youth of our parishes for 21 years as a Catechist, and for the past 14 years as the coordinator of the Faith Formation Program. Karen works with the preschool through 12th grades and oversees the implementation of the program and provides various Youth Ministry activities for our youth. Mission Trips, Lock Ins, small groups, and Diocesan events are only a few of the activities Karen offers for the youth in the cluster as her passion is bringing young people closer to Jesus through the beauty of the Catholic Church.
First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation are all part of Karen's program as well; she looks forward to sharing her love of the Lord with the younger kids and teens and helps them develop a relationship with Christ through the gifts of the Sacraments.
Please let Karen know if there is anything she can do to help your family and your children- she loves getting to know the families in our cluster!
