New Year’s Resolutions at Holy Apostles

12.28.21 | Food for the Soul

To round out the end of 2021, we asked some of our staff and volunteers what their New Year’s resolutions are as we head into 2022. Here’s what they had to say:  

Some of our community has personal goals they’re striving for in 2022. Jay, our Manager of Social Services, is committing to getting fit in the new year.  

Others are hoping to maintain or build meaningful relationships in their lives. Nichole, our Director of Development & Communications, wants to call her grandmother more often.  

One of our volunteers, Karen, is committed to giving back at Holy Apostles in the new year. We’re grateful for all of our volunteers and hope that many of you will join us in giving back in 2022.  

Michael, our Chief Operating Officer, is focused on work: “I just want to be able to keep doing what we’re doing, hopefully without any more variants,” he shared with me. That’s a resolution for us all this year! He also wants to foster better teamwork, improve communication, and know when to say no.  

Anna, our Executive Director, told me her resolution is “to expand our hospitality safely, while continuing our commitment to welcome all who come to our doors.”  

What’s your New Year’s Resolution for 2022? Comment below!
