House of Peace names new directors
The House of Peace, a Capuchin ministry, has named Gerri Sheets-Howard as its new executive director. Sheets-Howard has served as the assistant director since 2002.
"I grew up near the House of Peace. We looked at the House of Peace as an anchor in the neighborhood,” said Sheets-Howard. "I am very grateful for the beacon light that the Capuchins and the House of Peace has been to not only my family, but countless other families for almost 42 years. I am very fortunate to have this wonderful opportunity to serve the community through the ministry of the House of Peace."
Capuchin friar Perry McDonald will be serving as the House of Peace pastoral director. Father Perry is joined by Capuchin friars Father Matthew Gottschalk and Father Al Veik as Capuchin presence at the House of Peace.
Former director, Brother Mark D Carrico, has accepted another ministry position within the Capuchin Province of St. Joseph.
