Rita Lovering - St. Teresa of Avila Church in Grovetown
Ms. Lovering has been an integral part of our parish for several years, being a member of many ad hoc committees and assisting with social events of the parish. She was elected to the Parish Council three years ago and became Chairperson of the Parish Life Ministry. This ministry is responsible for organizing and overseeing activities to foster a sense of belonging among the members of our parish community. There are fifteen sub-ministries under the parent Parish Life Ministry for which Ms. Lovering provides supervision. In addition, she coordinates the Elijah Cup Ministry promoting prayer in the parish for the priesthood, diaconate and religious life. She also participates in the Garden Ministry which maintains flowers around the fountain, annual flower beds around campus and care of plants that accent the Columbarium. Her tireless efforts don’t stop there, she is also involved in community activities with the local Boy Scouts. Ms. Lovering has used her time and her talent to promote the true tenets of stewardship in her parish and the community.
