I work with the 3 year olds at St. Patrick’s Preschool. Outside of work you can find me on the trails in Victor, working in my yard or if the weather is nice heading to one of the lakes to kayak. But my favorite past time is spending time with my family, Mark, Ellie and Mollie.

I have been a teacher at St. Patrick’s Preschool for 9 years. I have taught both four and three-year olds. I live in Victor with my husband, Griff, and our three daughters, Lindsey, Courtney and Abby. When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling and watching my children play volleyball.

I have taught preschool at St. Patrick’s Preschool for 15 years and am currently the lead teacher for the 3 year-old children. Previously, I have also taught the 4 year-old children. I live in Victor with my husband, Gary, and we have two children, Jamie and Jake. My family has been members of St. Patrick’s for 20 years. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, watching sports, and any outdoor activities, e.g. hiking, camping, canoeing.

Kim Reese, Office & Cemetery Secretary, and Parish Life Coordinator
I moved here from Pennsylvania when my husband, Jeff and I got married in 1993.  We were touring the area and happened to drive down Maple Avenue.  When I saw St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, I said “we have to live in Victor!”  We have been parishioners ever since.  My family (Jeff and our two kids, Reagan and Ben) has volunteered in many areas at church and I started working here in 2010.  We are blessed to have made so many friendships that feel like family.  We like to exercise, watch our kids play sports and root for the Steelers!

Wayne Sweet, Maintenance

Father Edison Tayag, Pastor
Born in the Philippines, I moved to the US when invited to work as a physical therapist. My patients encouraged me to consider the priesthood, and I did and was ordained in 2008. I began my ministry at Saint Patrick’s Church in June 2015. I love the Scriptures. And I like to take photographs and travel and hike during free time.
