Dear UCYM Community,
It is with great sadness that we announce that Sam Carlson, Associate Director of Young Adult Life and Engagement will be leaving United Catholic Youth Ministries to pursue a new exciting teaching position in Seattle.
Sam first started his work with young adult ministry four years ago, bringing vision and passion to working with young adults in our Evanston parishes. Three years ago, a grant led to UCYM's hiring of Sam as Coordinator of Young Adult Ministry. Sam has been invaluable in establishing a solid base for young adult ministry.
We will miss Sam dearly, but wish him the best in his new endeavor!
If you wish to send Sam best wishes, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send mail to his attention at 806 Ridge Avenue, Evanston, IL 60202.
Your UCYM Directors
Mirka Gallo, MSW
James Holzhauer-Chuckas, ObSB
We want to take a moment to welcome three new faces to our UCYM Staff Team! Carmelita Armenta (left) joins our Support Team as our new Administrative Assistant and Alex Roman (right) as our Social Media Coordinator. Michael Cherco joins our Ministry Team as the Manager of Student Support. All three of these young people bring so much dedication, talent, and experience to their new roles and we look forward to the work they will contribute to the UCYM Team!
