The St. Francis of Assisi Pastoral Council Honors Katie Skeltis

Kati Skeltis was born in Chesaning, Michigan, one of four daughters. She attended Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Michigan State University and the UW for a MS in International Studies.
In 1984 Kati married Tony, then moved to Seattle. Their two children Gioia and Zach graduated from St. Francis School.
They joined St. Francis 31 years ago. They looked in the Yellow Pages, choosing St. Francis Parish because the Mass times were listed.
Kati feels called to serve, calling it a privilege and honor to serve her Church and faith community. She began volunteering with the Circle Group to plan social activities for young parishioners, Oktoberfest, the Confirmation team, and Evenings for the Engaged, Eucharistic minister. She was Lector Coordinator for 15 years. For seven years she has coached and served as St. Francis CYO Athletic Director, coordinating all parish CYO sports and serving on the Archdiocesan CYO Board of Directors.
She volunteers while being authentic and intentional, wholeheartedly building community through the giving of herself, and putting her faith into action. Kati says, ” One’s time is one’s most valuable asset.” Loving and giving was modeled to her as a child. As Kati gives back she wants kids to know and experience unconditional love, striving to help kids see that the Church is a welcoming place.
Kati, we honor your years of ministry to St. Francis Parish and School. The joyful, tender, competent and responsible management of many ministries has been a gift to our community. We are grateful for your presence and the strengths you share with us. Thank you for your patience and kindness in dealing with others, and for showing us Christ in such a loving way. Thank you for showing the true spirit of God with a loving and giving heart. God Bless you.

Praise & Recognition

To nominate someone, click Read More >, below. One of the six key characteristics of an engaged member of a parish is that members have received recognition or praise from someone in their parish, within the past six months. As our Parish moves forward, it will be essential that we create the climate where parishioners freely and frequently can recognize and praise the efforts of other parishioners and staff members. One step in creating this climate is the creation of this forum. Read More
