Staff Member: Tara Smith
Tara is the oldest of four children, born and raised a Catholic and a Chicago Cub fan in Bourbonnais, Illinois (just south of Chicago). She moved to Texas with her parents in 1983.
She joined St Michael’s Catholic Church with her husband, Cary, in 1989. They have three children, a daughter-in-law and their first grandson, Benjamin Patrick. Cary is in the choir and often cantors. Her mother, Rita, is also a parishioner. You will often see them sitting together at mass. Tara loves to spoil her grandson and her four-legged babies, spending time with family and friends, cooking/baking and doing water aerobics.
Tara is a part of the Community Dinner and Feast Day Teams, and the Liturgical Environment Ministry. She heard about the job posting for Formation Assistant from another parishioner. After careful consideration, she knew this is where God wanted her to be.
She brings experience in data entry, accounting, customer service and a love of learning new things and meeting new people. Tara’s position at St. Michael serves the administrative needs of the Faith Formation team.
