Welcome Mike McHenry

Hello St. Angela Merici! It is so good to be back home in Brea. Years ago, I began what has turned into a wonderful career of meeting and mentoring young people in their Catholic faith, right here at St. Angela. Returning to St. Angela Merici is something I never would have expected to happen and our family is overjoyed to be here! I have been involved in ministry to Catholics of all ages over the past 20 years, but my heart rests in ministry to teens and their families.
My wife Sheila and I have two teenagers of our own, Jack who is 17 and a senior at Valencia High School and Erin who is 15 and attends Valencia as well. Upon my arrival back at St. Angela’s, I have discovered an active and alive ministry and a wonderful environment for the youth of the parish to discover Christ. It is our intention, as a family, to become active members of the parish and take our catechetical programs for our youth to the next level. I look forward to getting reacquainted with old friends and forging new relationships with so many others. When you see any of our youth ministry team, stop and say hello!
