About our speaker…
Susan Almonte is the daughter of Italian immigrants, a wife and mother. A life-long parishioner at St. Benedict, Sue has cultivated a deep love for the Salesians and their patron, St. John Bosco, since they arrived at the parish in her youth. While the Salesian presence at her parish has done much to foster Sue's love of God and the Church, good roots were already in place: at the age of 14, through her family involvement with the Focolare Movement, Sue's personal relationship with God and the Church came to life with a profound awareness that God is real, a growing conviction that God is Love and a confident trust that God has a loving plan for everyone, herself included.
The faith formation Sue received from the Focolare Movement prepared her well for family life with all its complexities and her professional career as a teacher at Mary, Mother of God School, a small, independent, Catholic school in Toronto. Deep in her heart, Susan is convinced that Our Lady has hand-picked her to use her talents for the formation of young people at this uniquely inspired school, where she has served for 23 years, currently, as Vice-Principal. Susan's family, parish and school communities are the primary centres where Susan embraces the challenge to grow more deeply in faith and love of God and the Church.
