Inspiring service

Mary Hoban

Name a parish job and Hoban’s done it. She’s been on the finance committee and pastoral council. She’s been a religious education teacher and a lector.

“Mary is a go-getter. I know when I give her something to do, she gets it done and that has been essential to getting more parishioners involved in our ministries,” said Father John Williamson, pastor of the Catholic Community of Ascension and St. Augustine.

After years of being a tireless church volunteer at Ascension, Hoban recently became director of volunteers at Ascension and St. Augustine, helping others connect to the church as she has. She believes service doesn’t just help the church, it helps the volunteer.
