Staff Member: Wendy Rappé
Wendy (Forsythe) Rappé is new to the staff as of July, 2017. Returning to her homeland of Minnesota, she has lived in the Holy Land --Jerusalem and Bethlehem, Milwaukee, WI, and Santa Monica, CA.
Wendy has ministered in faith formation at St. Catherine’s, Mother of Perpetual Help, Gesu, and St. Mary’s parishes in Milwaukee WI, as well as Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills, CA. She has also served as parish consultant, college theology instructor, and retreat center worker. Motherhood has put her in the category of “life-long learner;” her three adult children, Sophia, Sam and David, have been her best teachers. Family has always been foundational as Wendy's parents, James and Beatrice, were from Elk River-Albertville -- so now living in this area she is on bedrock as relatives are everywhere!
Wendy holds a BA degree from the College of St. Benedict, and MA degree from St. John’s School of Theology.
