Catechist Spotlight

Meet Tom Patton, Grade 1 Catechist

Avid Disney fan and convert since 2012, Tom lives out his vocation as husband to Brenda and as father of Connor (age 19), Duncan (age 17) and Belle (age 14). All of their children are alumni of the Religious Education program at Our Lady of Hope. As a 1st grade Catechist for seven years, Tom works closely with Carol Vago to give their students the best experience in faith formation. They reflect God’s love and the children know it. Tom’s optimism, encouragement, and attention to detail help the students become more than just a class, they become friends. Tom loves when his former students see him in church and stop by to say hello, so don’t be shy! To those thinking about helping out with Religious Education, Tom’s advice is, “Do it, you won’t regret it.”
