Marrey Picciotti, Co-Director

Marrey was Coordinator of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at St. Giles Parish from 2005 to 2021.   Following completion of all three levels of CGS formation, she completed studies in practical theology and received her Master of Pastoral Studies from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago to develop a Level 4.  Her capstone paper was "Meeting the Formation Needs of Young Adolescents:  Development of Level Four Atrium in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd."  

She currently is working in the field of educational equity.

She is grateful for the support of her husband, Will, in this vocation, and her greatest joy has been watching her own daughters working in the atrium, first as children and now as catechists. Their journey has inspired her own.
