Staff Member: Marian Goetz
Marian was raised in Harmony, PA and is a 1982 graduate of Seneca Valley High School. She earned a Bachelor’s of Art in Music, from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, in 1986. Marian settled in Richland Township after marrying her husband, Bob, in 1989. They have three sons, Jack (23), recently wed to Alyssa, Ted (20) and Alan (15). She became involved in Adult Faith Formation as a volunteer at St. Richard Parish while pursuing a Master’s of Art in Pastoral Theology at St. Joseph College, Maine, through their online Graduate Professional Studies Program. She completed her degree in May 2014 and is excited and grateful for the opportunity to work in Adult Faith Formation as St. Joseph Parish. Marian’s other interests include a weekly women’s Bible study, reading, gardening, biking and hiking.
Marian stated, “I am happy to have joined the staff at a parish that places a great value on Adult Faith Formation and realizes that it is essential in evangelization and catechesis of both the children, teens and adults of the community. My hope is to increase the involvement of parishioners in all aspects of the Faith Formation process.”
