Sister Margaretta Nussbaumer has been the pastoral associate at Immaculate Conception Parish in Washington, Pa., since 2002, and has been in ministry since 1977. Prior to that she taught in the Pittsburgh Diocesan School System for 13 years. She leads communal prayer when called upon, conducts weekly prayer groups, assists with the preparation for the sacraments of marriage and baptism, is a Eucharistic minister and lector, and visits the sick of the parish. She works with the evangelization team on their Landings Program, which invites non-participating Catholics to return to the faith. Sister Margaretta also works with the Worship, Education, and Parish Life committees. She is an ex officio member of the Pastoral Council.
Sister Margaretta says, “I try to make [God’s] Providence more visible in my own life and enable others to do the same by showing and sharing the many ways God’s love and care is with us in all that we do.”
