Renee Borne is our new Director of Religious Education.
She is a perfect fit with her skills and gifts in this area as a school teacher for 12 years, and previously Religious Ed coordinator at Holy Savior Catholic Church in Clinton. She is excited to return to a Parish program of instructing and leading children in the Catholic Faith.
Renee was born and raised in South Louisiana. She graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a degree in Elementary Education, and is a faithful LSU fan. She taught elementary school for twelve years and has been a member of St.Paul since 2006. Renee has been married to Eddie for seventeen years, and they are blessed with three daughters. She began working as the parish receptionist and secretary in July 2015, and has also been a volunteer and coordinator of the Children's Liturgy Ministry. Renee enjoys everyone that she works with and loves working at St. Paul. She is happy to help you in any way that she can.
Fun fact about Renee: She grew up near the bayous of South Louisiana and spent most of her childhood on the water. She and Eddie now have a cattle farm near Carthage, MS. "Never, ever would I have imagined myself doing what is required to operate a cattle farm, but we sure do have some stories to tell!!" said Renee.
Favorite scripture: Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. This bible verse was on a key chain given to me for Confirmation. I carried it with me for years after, until the clasp broke and I still have it in a drawer at home. This scripture brings a smile to my face every time that I read it. I may not always understand life, but this scripture brings promise that through God' love, His plan will be revealed to me.
