Camille Horvath, Pastoral Associate, was certified as a Lay Ecclesial Minister in the Diocese of Cleveland on February 3, 2018 by Bishop Nelson Perez. Throughout the formation process, her focus centered on pastoral care, ministering to the sick and those in crisis, allowing her to achieve specialized certifications in bereavement, catechesis, compassion, and self-care. Prior to St. Mary’s, she served as the administrative assistant for Faith Formation where she was active in the implementation and facilitation of prayer-focused ministries and those engaged in outreach to the community. Additionally, she created, designed, and taught a supplemental program for youth who were in need of intensive faith education.
Before dedicating herself to being a stay at home mom, she was a fourth grade teacher, having earned her Bachelor of Science in Education at Cleveland State University. Her two adult sons, Drew and Alex live just
outside of Columbus and Dayton. She resides in Medina with her husband of thirty years. Camille feels she is abundantly blessed to serve at the parish of St. Mary where she has truly found a home.
