Kudos Corner is a means of acknowledging those in our parish who share their time, talent and treasure to spread the Good News of God's unconditional love. It is intended to lift up and celebrate the actions of individuals and groups within our faith community who touch hearts and make a difference.

This month’s Kudos Corner recognizes Lynn Hensler. December 2016

Lynn has a driving passion to serve those in need. This is why she has been the chairperson of the Outreach Ministries Committee (formerly Social Action Committee) for over 10 years.

Each December the parish takes part in the St. Leo Toy and Clothing Drive and the Giving Tree which provides Christmas presents to children in need. Lynn has headed both these efforts for at least 15 years.

She also has a heart for those in prison. Lynn is highly active in the Dismas Journey, a movement in the Archdiocese to assist those who served sentences and are now looking for a second chance as they try to re-enter society. She has also taken part in mentoring those about to be released.

Lynn is one of several from Visitation who are part of the “Gather and Send” Archdiocese campaign involving Social Action groups from over 30 parishes.

She is also highly active in helping the Ed Colina Foundation which builds schools and improves the lives of the impoverished in Kenya.

Besides all this service, Lynn is highly involved in Visi’s Christ Renews His Parish, the CRHP continuation committee, as well as helping Our Lady of Victory’s CRHP. She is also a member of the Leadership Committee of the Doing God’s Work building campaign here.

Beyond Visitation…Lynn takes part in Interfaith Hospitality at St William Church.

Lynn and her husband Tom have one son, Tommy, who is an 8th grader here at Visi.

Kudos Corner thanks and salutes Lynn Hensler for sharing her time, talent and treasure with the parish and truly being a disciple of Jesus!
