Mrs arlene dagadu

Parish administrator

A native of St Vincent, West Indies, fluent in French and Spanish, Mrs Dagadu began her ministry with us in Fall 1997. Her reputation as an exceptional administrator has certainly been proved among us. Her organizational skills, discipline, imperturbability, attention to detail, and ability to multi-task, combined with her graciousness and kindness, make for a well-ordered, well-run, and happy parish administration.
