Please Welcome Kelly Nunez, our new Director of RE
It’s a pleasure and a blessing for me to join the OLV community. I was born and raised in Northern Colorado and graduated from CSU. In 2010, I converted to Catholicism. During my conversion I developed a great love for the Church that I wish to share with everyone, especially children. That same year I began volunteering as a RE Teacher for the sacrament classes. Motivated by a love of the Church, The Eucharist and the desire to help everyone grow closer to Christ, I continued for several years volunteering as a teacher for sacrament classes, RCIC and this past year teaching RCIA at St. John the Baptist in Johnstown. Please know that I am here to serve you and explore together how your children can grow closer to Christ and be ever mindful of His presence and joy through our various faith formation opportunities.

Our Lady of the Valley has restored the Order of Sacraments. This means that we will be preparing our 2nd graders for First Reconciliation and 3rd graders for the Sacrament of Confirmation. If prepared, students will receive their Sacraments in the Spring.
