Kathy Nowak, Church Secretary

Kathy is the “go-to” person at Prince of Peace. She is responsible for building use, maintaining the calendar for the congregation, maintaining the membership database, answering everybody’s numerous and varied questions, and handling the many other issues that may crop up at any time. A graduate of Pace University with a background in managerial accounting, Kathy has been in her position since 2000. She and her husband, Greg, and sons Tim, Trevor and Kevin have been members since 1987.

Kathy is invaluable to Prince of Peace, in large part through working with the ministry team leaders and members of the congregation in planning and implementing the activities of the church. She does so always graciously and with a smile and a ready desire to be of help.

Dedicated to Prince of Peace outside her work schedule, Kathy is also a member of the Worship and Music Team and Communications Team. Of her involvement at the church Kathy says, “I most enjoy working with all the people of this congregation – getting to know them and being able to help accomplish the mission of Prince of Peace.”
