Jan Buczek, Parish Member since 1985
I have been a member of The Basilica family since the mid 1980's. I am twice widowed, have six children and their spouses. I am Grandma to 16 grandkids and 11 great-grandkids. At the age of 50 I graduated from St. Kate's in Pastoral Ministry. I am so graced to be part of the ministries of Eucharistic ministers, lectors, and am an acolyte.
I also serve as a member of The Basilica’s Team planning for the Archdiocesan Synod. Outside of the Basilica, I am a weekly volunteer at North Memorial Health. My hobbies include reading, creating greeting cards, and playing golf.
I want to serve the Parish Council to add my talents to The Basilica's vision of being a home of “spiritual nourishment, a beacon of hope, and an advocate for change.” The continued mission of diversity has been such a gift. We welcome one and all no matter where one is on their life’s journey.
