About Kristen Graham

I attended the Girard, KS School District from K-12. Then moved onto Pittsburg State University to get a Bachelor of Technology in Commercial Graphics. While at PSU, I was employed by Student Publications for 3 years where I experienced many rolls… Newspaper Page Layout Designer, Yearbook Editor in Chief and Graphic Designer, and Advertising Representative. It was also in my years at PSU that I met my wonderful husband Doug.

My husband and I have settled back in my hometown where we are close to both of our wonderful families. I have now been in the print industry for 2 years (post college), working as a Graphic Designer and Type Setter for a Vender that coats and print labels using a Flexographic Press.

I try and keep involved in the Graphic Industry by taking on small side projects… invitations, websites and various commercial items.

PSR Classes Soon to Start

August 26th, 2017 | Posted by Kristen Graham in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on PSR Classes Soon to Start)

 

1st – 5th Grades

We are excited to announce that our Elementary School program will return to Wednesday after school (2:30-3:30), but we are still in great need to find subs and would SO LOVE finding an upbeat and fun musician for our program!  This could be a high-schooler, college student, or available adult. 

It is a MUST to get registration forms in before our first day (Sept.6) so that we know your child is permitted to walk over from the school. Find the Registration information along with a message from our Director of Religious Education, Michelle Smith-Puckett, at the Parish School of Religion Page. Forms can also be found at the back of either church or the church Hall.

 

Middle School and High School

There will be a mandatory parent meeting for grades 6-12 on Wed, Aug 30 following 6:30 mass at St. Michael parish hall. The first session of PSR for middle and high school students will be Sept. 6, beginning at 6:30 pm. Find the Registration form at the Parish School of Religion Page or at the back of either church or the church hall.

Totus Tuus 2017

July 27th, 2017 | Posted by Kristen Graham in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Totus Tuus 2017)

2017 Totus Tuus daytime kids. What a great bunch of kids.

Totus Tuus has been a great week for the children and teens who have taken advantage of this opportunity…so Thank You to you parents who have ‘gone the extra mile’ to have this program be a success.  If active and noisy children is any indication that they are learning about faith, then we have nothing to worry about. Of course there is the quiet time too in the classroom and in church when they are putting the lessons of faith to the test. The team, Will, Whitney, Abigail, Chris, have done a great job of teaching in a way that the children are comfortable with learning about our Catholic faith. Those who go to daily Mass have had to sacrifice a little because Mass was changed to 11:30, but that gave me the opportunity to participate more with the Totus Tuus week for which I am grateful. May God bless you all, Father Floyd McKinney.

And did you know that Totus Tuus started in our very own St. Michael’s Church?! Paula Sevart and Mary Kate Smith made the awesome banner and bulletin board in all these photos!
