Deacon John Bialorucki
- I am a retired Operations Training instructor from Davis-Besse.
- I am a fan of the Doctor Who television show, which is the longest running science fiction show.
- I enjoy golfing. I’m not the best of golfers. In fact for a Christmas gift one year, my daughter presented me with a dozen golfs with the following quote “I spend more time in the trees than the squirrels.”
- I enjoy talking to people about their faith, especially over coffee and doughnuts.
Director of Religious Education
What do you really do? As Director of Religious Education, I help educate individuals of all ages. I am most involved in the Junior High Youth Group, RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults), PSR (Parish School of Religion) for grades 1-6, First Reconciliation, First Communion, adult bible studies and other adult educational programs.
Fun Fact I was in formation with the Sisters of Notre Dame in Toledo for several years. I never made final vows with them. Through spiritual direction and prayer, God led me elsewhere. I met my husband shortly after I left the community, and we have four children together. I don’t regret my time with the Sisters, and I am still close friends with several of them. I grew so much personally and spiritually during that time, and I am very grateful to the community.
