The Shrine of Our Lady Pompeii would like to acknowledge and thank Susan Pudelek, M.Div., for her faithful efforts over the past 12 years of service as our Director of Pilgrimage Ministry. During the past 12 years, Susan developed and conducted countless retreats, workshops, pilgrimage events, and spiritual nourishment programs such as The Compassionate Heart and the Lost Child Pilgrimage.
Susan’s faithful, warm, and spiritual presence will be missed by those who have worked with her over those 12 years.
In January 2018 Susan joined the Archdiocese of Chicago Office for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs staff as Coordinator of Interreligious Relations. God’s grace keeps her near as she will still occasionally conduct programs at the Shrine as part of her new role with the Archdiocese of Chicago.
