Features

New Communications Director

New Communications Director

St. Columba's is pleased to announce Lauren Devito as our new Director of Communications, effective August 15. Lauren joined the staff in March as part-time Creative Director of Digital Media. In that capacity, she helped us move quickly in the Call to Action for racial justice, created the video to launch our 30-30-30 campaign with Housing Up, is developing a new website (stay tuned!), and quickly became a vital member of our staff team. We anticipate a seamless transition as she steps into this new, larger role.
