DREs shine their light for children
I read the beautiful article on Brenda and Luke Tromatore from Our Lady of Prompt Succor in Chalmette (“A half-century of love and passing on the faith,” May 12 Clarion Herald). Thank you for this!
Brenda’s dedication is long – longer than most of my DREs in parishes – but the commitment of all of them is just as strong and deep.
We are so blessed to have Brenda’s story represent what exists in all of our parishes when it comes to fidelity to the ministry of catechesis and evangelization. I pray that everyone reads the article and begins to have an appreciation for the dedication and hard work that goes into bringing the people of God into communion with him.
