Equally as deserving is Jeff Cirelli. Jeff can be seen around Faith most days of the weeks. He is a right hand man for our custodian, George Pymer, and assists with preparations for activities at the church, everything from election day set up to moving tables for fellowship activities. Jeff assists with Sunday School and presently helps students in the Computer Lab. He also is active in the LOMO Day Camp, Taco Tuesday and many other student activities. Jeff is reliable and dependable and always has a joke or two to bring a smile to your face. Thanks to Jeff for his dedication to Faith Lutheran.
