We are introducing Ms. Terese Halm - NCA's new 5-8th-grade Religion teacher!
Miss Halm joins NCA this year as our new middle school religion teacher. She grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and has been in ministry for the past 7 years. She is currently completing an MA in Theology at the Augustine Institute, in Denver but online. She has a double major BA in Theology and Catechetics and a minor in philosophy from the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
"I have been praying and trusting for whatever God has in store for me this year and my heart is bursting with joy and gratitude to be serving at the NCA this year. I cannot wait to get to know everyone, share the joy of the Gospel, and the fire of God's love and mercy!" -Miss Halm
As a teacher, Miss Halm must enjoy learning from her students and leading them closer to the heart of God the Father through Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Blessed Mother.
"We are all called to be saints and are created to be fully alive in God's love. With so much going on in the world, our city, and in our lives we need brave and open souls who are receptive to God's love and from that overflow, flood the world with God's love and peace!" - Miss Halm
