YesMrs.SusanCheplic
Hello! I grew up in Buffalo, New York and through attending Catholic School my whole life I felt a call to share my love for our faith with others. I attended St Vincent College where I majored in Theology and Religious Education. While there I met my husband, and shortly after graduation we settled in North Huntingdon. I have had the pleasure of working with parish Youth Ministry as well as in the classroom setting teaching religion. My goal is to guide students on the path to claiming the Catholic faith as their own and helping them to apply it to their lives.
