Church-related job, career a good way to contribute talents, enrich own faith

jobsLooking for a career in the Church? You might just find what you’re looking for here.

Each issue of The Catholic Spirit will feature an advertisement highlighting jobs available throughout the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. (The first ad appears below.)

For many people, a part-time job or career in a par­ish, school, archdiocesan office or other church-affiliated organizations is a good opportunity to assist the Church in its mission and enrich their own faith in the process.

Eileen Bock recently accepted a position as marketing and communications project manager in the archdiocesan Office of Communications.

“My main duty is to help other departments in the archdiocese with the marketing and communications portion of their projects and events,” Bock said.

Previously, she has worked in marketing and sales, most recently as an independent consultant. She was looking for something more permanent when she applied.

“One of the biggest benefits of working for the archdiocese is [that] I didn’t have to learn the ‘business.’ As a consultant, I had to learn about each company’s widgets they sell or services they provide,” she said. “As a lifelong, active Catholic, I already know about the Church. I really enjoy the people I work with and my new responsibilities. I can honestly say all of the projects I work on are for a great cause.”

Bringing faith to work

Marie Maki works as an administrative assistant at St. Ambrose in Woodbury.

After college she worked for an advertising agency, and then worked as a full-time mom for 13 years.

She wanted to get back to work when her youngest son finished fifth grade, but working full-time didn’t work with the family’s busy schedule. “I have a bachelor’s degree in business and wondered what I could do after being out of the work force for so long,” Maki said.

After an ad appeared in the parish bulletin, she applied and was hired in April 2010.

“I love working at St. Ambrose,” she said. “I grew up in a very strong Catholic family, going to a Catholic elementary and high school. It is wonderful when I am thinking of someone that I know needs a prayer, I can stop by our chapel for a few minutes and light a candle, right here at my job.”
