Parish Administrative Assistants
Barbara Shields and her husband Terry have lived on Bainbridge Island for over three years, having previously been lifelong residents of Albany, New York. The joy and inspiration of grandbabies (four in all), brought them to the West Coast. Barbara has been a registered nurse for 46 years and has adapted this skill-set to being a substitute teacher, Safe Environment Program facilitator, and a lead catechist for children’s ministries at St. Cecilia Parish. She enjoys her most devout and sacred praying while dancing and singing, and she loves to rollerblade! She looks forward to sharing her faith and talents with our parish youth and being reminded daily by their presence that God is good – all the time!

Dave Reynolds and his wife Sharon have been members of St. Cecilia Parish for over twenty years.
