OLW Warmly Welcomes New Parish Office Manager
For those who missed the last Pastor’s Letter, “Happy Happenings at OLW” announcing the good news, Our Lady of the Wayside is happy to announce the addition of Mari Torgerson to our parish office staff. Mari is our new Office Manager, stepping in for Kathy Freiburger who retired after 41 years of dedicated service to our parish.
Please extend a warm OLW “Welcome” to Mari.
Mari Torgerson Introduction
Mrs. Mari Torgerson and her family live in Arlington Heights and have been Our Lady of Wayside parishioners since 2017. She is a wife and mother to four children ages 3, 5, 7, and 15. Mari obtained her Bachelor’s in Human Resources from Franklin University, and she has more than 14 years of office administration experience. She is also currently a catechist at OLW and serves with the ABC/25 Foundation to support local schools. When she is not busy being a mother and catechist, her hobbies include fitness, baking, dining out, and exploring different cultures.
Before joining the OLW team, Mrs. Torgerson was employed with AMITA Health, a Catholic hospital system, where she worked directly with top executives. Mari aims to use her experience to assist Fr. Arthur, the OLW deacons, and parish staff to accomplish their mission to support the OLW Community. In Mari’s own words: “Faith has always been an important part of my life, so I am very excited to join the Parish Administration team. I look forward to connecting even more with our parish community.”Tags: #maritorgerson, #officemanager, #olw, #olwparish, #parishoffice
