My wife, Mari, and I have been parishioners of St. Raphael since 2010.  I work at Energizer in R&D, and Mari is a Pure Barre instructor in two local studios.  Our two oldest children attended St. Raphael School from kindergarten through eighth grade, and they now attend Avon Lake High School (Anna Maria 11th grade, Isaac 9th grade).  Our youngest, Luci, has also attended St. Raphael School since kindergarten and is currently in 6th grade.  Throughout the years, Mari and I have volunteered in a variety of parish and school activities, including Fish Fry, Parish Picnic, Pre Cana, Home & School, classroom activities, Vacation Bible School, Men’s Basketball, CYO coaching, and more.  I am grateful for being a member of the Parish Pastoral Council, and I look forward to being able to continue serving our Parish in this and other capacities.

My wife Sarah and I along with our family became members at St. Raphael Parish a couple years ago as our daughter Grace started kindergarten. Sarah and I have been married since 2012. We welcomed our daughter Grace in 2013 (St. Raphael Class of 2028) and our son Ben in 2017 (Future St. Raphael class of 2032).  I graduated with an accountancy degree from John Carroll University and have been in Finance at the Cleveland Clinic for over 15 years. Our favorite past-times anymore are spending time with Grace and Ben and watching their different sporting events. It is nice to get out on the golf course every now and then too. Sarah and I have served in several different ministries since being married including Eucharistic Ministry as well as the Pre Cana team at Holy Spirit Parish. We are excited to be a part of the St. Raphael family and to be serving on the Parish Council.

My husband, Bill, and I have been members of the St. Raphael community for more than 30 years, participating in several parish organizations.

Presently, I am grateful to serve as a Eucharist Minister.  After retiring from Lakewood High School where I taught English, I'm now an adjunct professor and writing tutor at Tri-C.  I am very involved with the Bay Chapter of the League of Women Voters, and, most importantly, with our two grandchildren.

As a graduate of St. Raphael's, I am excited to to be able to give back to the community as a Parish Pastoral Council member.  I am married to my wife, Karen, and we have a wonderful daughter, Lizzie, who is currently in 5th grade at St. Raphael's School.  I've been a member of St. Raphael's Parish for most of my life.  I currently work as the Wealth Planner at Fidelity Investments in Westlake.  It is common to see my wife around the school and church as she is a member of the kitchen staff and a leader in the St. Raphael's Family Connections Group.

Tom Henderson and his wife, Melissa, have been members of the parish for over five years and have lived in Bay Village for over a decade.  Prior to St. Raphael, Tom and his wife were parishioners at St. Clarence in North Olmsted, where Melissa grew up and Tom completed RCIA.  Tom and Melissa have one daughter, Maria, who was born in 2017.  Tom is an investment professional at Cleveland Clinic with a focus on private equity and venture capital.  One unique thing about Tom is that he was featured in an episode of Catholics Come Home, a popular television series hosted by Tom Peterson on EWTN.

Since 1996 my husband, Patrick, and I have been thrilled to call Bay Village home.  We came back to Ohio to continue our training in Chemistry and were blessed to be able to stay.  I teach Organic Chemistry at the local community college and also do private tutoring.  Education is my passion and thus, I have spent many years supporting education in many capacities in our lovely city.

For better than 40 years, I have been a Bay Village resident and a proud member of St. Raphael.  Over that time, I have been privileged to have served both a three-year term on the Parish Pastoral Council, ending in 1998, and able to increase my faithfulness as a Eucharistic Minister.  I feel privileged to again return to Parish Pastoral Council in 2016.  During time of difficulty, St. Raphael has been a warm and prayerful hand in my life.  Since 2002, I have been a Bay Village Councilman (Ward 1).  Additionally, I work as a Funeral Associate where my past devotion as a Eucharistic Minister may be called upon.  I enjoy being fortunate to give time and service to Church and community.

My husband, Bill, and I joined St. Raphael Parish in 2002 after we moved here from Chicago, where I grew up.  We went to a few parishes but we ultimately decided on St. Raphael because it felt like home.  We have been married for over 18 years and we have two sons.  Patrick (15) is a sophomore at St. Ignatius and Nevin (13) is in 7th grade here at St. Raphael School.  We love having family dinners, movie nights every weekend, and traveling.  I am an Accountant and own my own accounting firm.  I also served as Treasurer for Home & School the last three years and volunteered in many capacities.  I feel extremely blessed to be able to now serve our parish family through the parish council.
