JEANNE GUERREIRO, LITURGY COORDINATOR
Job Title: Liturgy Coordinator
Working at Solano: Liturgy Coordinator 2 1/2 years, Kitchen Coordinator 3 years.
Favorite part about job: Being part of the team that brings Christ to everyone through the liturgy and church activities.
About Jeanne’s family: I have been married for 48 years to my wonderful husband Greg, we have 2 grown children Kalani and Malialani and 3 intelligent, talented, loving, & beautiful grandchildren: Luke and Kailani live in Mission Viejo with our daughter Malialani and son-in-law John; Keao'olu lives in Hawaii with our son Kalani.
Hometown and Education: I was born in New Orleans, LA and both my parents are from Louisiana. My Dad was in the Army and until I moved to Houston in 1995, I had never lived anywhere longer than 5 years. I have been here in CA now for 13 years: 3 in Oceanside and almost 11 here in RSM. I graduated from Leilehua High School in Wahiawa, HI and I started college at Chaminade University in Hawaii. I later studied at University of Maryland in Germany, then did a semester at University of Hawaii and I finally graduated from LSU with a BA in psychology.
Favorite part of being Catholic: I love that I can go to Mass and receive Holy Communion every day. I love the traditions and knowledge that our faith comes from Jesus Christ who was sent by God our Father to forgive our sins and show us his unconditional love. I love that we are the only religion that can trace our faith back to Christ. The fact that we can go anywhere in the world and the Mass will be the same even if it is spoken in a different language.
Hobbies: Reading, cooking, spending time with my grandchildren, watching TV, relaxing, and traveling whenever possible.
Favorite food: Seafood-- Lobster, crab, and shrimp.
Favorite song: Here I am, Lord.
Fun facts: I played the piano as a child. I have lived in Panama and Germany, and I’ve traveled to Switzerland, France, Austria, Lichtenstein, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Greece, Istanbul, Egypt, Israel, Mexico, and Canada.
Dream for Solano: To make it the best Catholic Church it can be, to draw back to the faith those who have left it, and to have our youth stay in their faith once they grow up.
Additional comments: I feel blessed to be a member of Solano, this is where our friends are. After a lifetime of moving I enjoy getting to be here long enough to actually put down some roots. This is the first time I've lived in one spot long enough to have to paint our house—which we got to do this year!
