Vestry:

Jeanne Dams

Jeanne Dams

Many of you may not know Jeanne Dams since she is usually an “8:00” person. Her Sunday mornings are complicated since she sings in the choir at the First United Methodist Church a few blocks away (where her best friend and her friend’s husband are organist and choirmaster) and therefore attends their 10:30 service. She has been an Episcopalian for nearly forty-five years and remains staunchly committed to the Eucharist and the Book of Common Prayer. During the week, she works at the Food Bank of Northern Indiana and tries to find time for her real vocation, writing novels. She has lived in South Bend all of her life.

She has done editing work for Bishop Gray, is a member of the Altar Guild and will soon begin CDI training.

John Lendel

John Lendel

John is looking forward to becoming more active in the life of Christ at St. Paul’s. Relatively new to the area, he and his wife Kyle live in Plymouth, IN. Originally from Michigan (he asks that we not hold that against him and adds “Go Blue”) they own property in the Three Rivers area. He is currently working in Logansport as General Manager of a spring manufacturing company and has been in manufacturing management for over 35 years. His journey in the Episcopal faith started with marriage and the raising in the faith of two lovely daughters now married with families and three grandchildren. He has worked in various parts of parish life including administration, finance, stewardship, evangelism and building and grounds including long term planning. He is excited at the prospect of getting to know and work with everyone at St. Paul’s. “Let us pray he leads us in the right direction in Unity.”
