Charmaine Pfeifer has been with the Office for Diaconate Formation for 8 years. Prior to that, she worked in a parish for 10 years as a Christian formation assistant, including 3 years as parish receptionist and bulletin editor. She feels it is a great privilege to be allowed to have a small part in assisting in the journey of these men and their wives (if married) in their calling to the diaconate, the call to minister to and serve the people of God, in addition to their already full lives of marriage, family, and employment. Away from the office, Charmaine enjoys spending time with her family. She also enjoys baking, reading, thrift store shopping, and the outdoors, especially up north!
