It is with great pleasure that our office introduces Alixandra [Ali] Holden as the new Mission Education Coordinator for the Missionary Childhood Association.  Ali will be the new face of Mission and our representative for you, your teachers, your catechists and students.  She will be available to each of you to develop integrated programs to form your students as Missionary Disciples. Through easy-to-implement ideas that complement your existing catechetical program, Ali will be able to support the Church’s Mission and yours to help students learn about their baptismal responsibility to evangelize, grow in understanding of the lives of children their age in the developing world, and become active Missionary Disciples through their own witness, prayer, and sacrifice.

Ali comes to our Missions office from Saint Frances Cabrini Parish in Fairless Hills, where she worked as the Director of Religious Education and Youth Minister.  This experience will serve her well as she understands the obligation to teach students about their Catholic faith and the time limitations.

Ali has earned a Counseling and Human Services degree from The University of Scranton with a minor in Theology.  She hopes to continue her education, and receive her Masters in Theology. Ali has a passion for helping others, and sharing her faith with children. She continues to be an active member of her parish and volunteers for their Youth Group.

Please join us in welcoming Ali to our Mission team.  She looks forward to speaking and meeting you and being a part of your role in shaping Missionary Disciples.
