Hello ChristLife parents!  

 

My name is Janelle Pety and I am so honored that you are entrusting the care of your children to myself and my team.  I hope we can bring you peace of mind that your children are safe and are getting formed in the faith as you participate in ChristLife each week.  A little bit about myself - I’ve been a parishioner of Magdalen for over two years along with my family after we moved to Wichita from Illinois. I currently stay at home with my son but in my pre-baby days I earned my Masters Degree in Social Work and was employed in the field of child welfare.  I also have teaching experience in ESL when I served as a volunteer in Peace Corps Micronesia. ChristLife invited me to develop a personal, dynamic relationship with Jesus that I never realized I was capable of despite being cradle Catholic. I am serving as ChristLife Child Formation Director because I want to give back to this ministry that has allowed me to live life abundantly with Christ.  Please contact me at (773) 877-4262 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to meeting you and engaging with your children every 

week!

The Lord’s Diner no longer requires Health Department food safety classes and a current food handlers card for volunteers.  An on-line class provided by the diner and Virtus training are required for all new volunteers.  In addition, the hours for the preparation shift for those who assist the cooks in meal  preparation  have changed  to 10:00am to 1:00pm.  Magdalen continues to provide eight volunteers for the preparation shift and approximately 25 volunteers for the serving and clean-up shift from 5:00pm to 8:00pm on the third Tuesday of each month at the Central and Broadway location.  If you are interested in devoting your time and talent to this important ministry please contact Sheryl and Jim Hays at This email address is being protected from spambots.
