Jen Graves

Hi, my name is Jen Graves. I've been a member of this parish for almost 40 years. I met my husband, Dan, here when we were in religious education classes in elementary school. We've been blessed with raising two children, Damian and Joseph. This will be my first year officially helping as a catechetical assistant although I did help during high school many years ago. My husband and I also spent many years assisting the high school youth group and confirmation program. In my free time I enjoy volunteering at my son's school, going on adventures with my family, and finding the best coffee shops. Our Lady of Fatima has a special place in my heart along with St. Joseph.

Kris McCormick

My family and I moved to Vancouver from Florida in 2007.  Shortly thereafter we joined St. Joe's and I become involved with Faith Formation.  Since then, I have mostly taught Kindergarten. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, watching football, playing games or cards, reading, doing crossword puzzles or hiking. I try to remember that God is in control and I turn to scripture for reinforcement.  My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for woe! plans to give you a future full of hope."


Jill Roemhildt

My name is Jill Roemhildt, and I am excited to be a catechetical assistant for the kindergarten class for the first time.  My husband Scott and I are converts to the faith, and have been parishioners at St. Joseph’s for 21 years.  We are blessed with seven children (ages ranging from 10 to 32 years of age).  We have a wonderful son in law, and a spunky 6 year old granddaughter.  St. Therese of Lisieux is my favorite saint.  I enjoy  spending time with my family, gardening, and occasionally a trip to the beach.


Amanda Kerber
1st Grade

Amanda Kerber is beginning her second year as a catechist and has three of her own children in the faith formation program.  She and her husband have been members of St Joe's for 13 years.  One of her favorite scriptures is John 15:4-5 "Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing." Amanda finds herself involved in many things this year, from her work as a nurse practitioner to volunteer work at church and her kids' elementary school to experimenting in her garden.  She hopes to stay connected to "the vine" in all of it, and to be a good connecting branch for her community. 

Kevin Kerber
1st Grade

I'm Kevin Kerber and this is my second year as an assistant catechist, previously for middle school and now 1st grade.  I have been a parishioner at St Joseph's for 13 years.  My favorite Saint is St. Francis of Assisi.  I work as a computer engineer and when I'm not tinkering with electronics I enjoy getting outside with my family, visiting parks, and eating ice cream.

Martin Campos
2nd Grade

Hello my name is Martin Campos, and I have been a catechist longer than I can remember. My best guess is 15 years. My wife (and co-catechist) have been in the parish for over 20 years. As I think about being a second grade catechist (and a public school teacher), one of my favorite scripture passages can be found in Matthew’s Gospel: 

At that time the disciples approached Jesus and said, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" He called a child over, placed it in their midst, and said, "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And  whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me"

(MT 18: 2-6). Being a catechist continues to be one of the highlights of my year. I enjoy sharing our faith and hearing our students share their faith with honesty and wonder. Thank you for being your children first and principal teacher and letting us support you. I look forward to meeting you soon.


Molly Brumfield
3rd Grade

Hello! I'm Molly Brumfield, and I'm a third grade catechist this year. I've been volunteering in a variety of faith formation capacities off and on (mostly on!) since college. Along with my husband and four kids, I've been a parishioner at St. Joe's since 2016. My favorite saint is Francis of Assisi because he's a great example of recognizing God in all of creation. In my free time, I love to adventure with my family, read, cook and bake, practice yoga, and write.

I have been a parishioner of St. Joe's since 1993 when I went through RCIA as a baptized candidate. Some of my favorite saints to name a few are St. Mary, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Clare, St. Dominic of Molokai and St. Marianne Cope. Some of my hobbies are traveling and cooking when I have time.

Denise Hirata
5th Grade

My name is Thomas Rodriguez. This is my second year as a catechist at St. Joseph’s. I’ve always heard the Lord’s calling me to serve, and prayerfully answered his call.  Serving as a catechist and guiding the children of the parish in their faith journey is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have had.  After leaving St. Thomas Moore in Sandy, UT, my wife, 2 daughters, and son joined St. Joseph parish about 5 years ago.  In my free time I enjoy playing games with my family. My family and I also love the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, and camping.  I am active in my son’s Cub Scout pack, once again shaping young minds. I also enjoy home improvement and tinkering in my garage.  For these reasons I identify most with St. Joseph, the patron saint of families, fathers, and workers. I admire St. Joseph from his dedication to his family and answering the call to serve God, and pray that his blessed life guide me through mine.
