Colton Goodman : Youth/Evangelization Coordinator

Colton Goodman

Youth/Evangelization Coordinator

Hello! My name is Colton Goodman, and I will be taking over the role of High School
Youth Minister and Director of Evangelization for St. Robert! I attended St. Robert
School, Powers Catholic High School and just recently graduated from the University of
Michigan – Flint. I’ve been involved with the Youth Group since I was a freshman in high
school and have helped lead small groups and retreats during the last 8 years. I have
also been an Altar Server at St. Robert since grade school.
During the last couple of years, I have helped out with the Powers Catholic Hockey
team, helped to lead Kairos retreats with Powers Campus Ministry, and have been
involved with the Catholic Campus Ministry for U of M-Flint, Kettering, and Mott CC.
I am excited to be taking over the role of Youth Minister as I have enjoyed assisting with
the Youth Group and giving back to a program that helped my own faith formation
immensely. I am equally as excited to step into the role of Director of Evangelization. I
love the St. Robert Parish and wish to see it grow, as well as expand our role in bringing
the love of Christ to the surrounding community.
If you know anyone in grades 9-12 that you feel would be interested in the High School
Youth Group, please feel free to reach out to me with their contact information.
I ask that you please keep both myself and the Youth Group in your prayers!

Marty Rymarz : OCIA/Liturgy Coordinator

Marty Rymarz

OCIA/Liturgy Coordinator

My name is Marty Rymarz and I will be stepping into the rather large shoes left behind by Tim Cassady. I am blessed to be able to help coordinate the Liturgy and wanted to reach out to each of you to both introduce myself and say thank you for all you do as volunteers for this ministry of breaking open the word of God through your reading of sacred scripture. We believe that scripture is the inspired word of God and what a blessing it is for you to share your time and talent to deliver this inspired word through your voice. Thank you!
 
 A little about myself. I am married and have four children and 3 grandchildren. The family is growing and by the end of the year we will have 5 grandchildren. What a blessing indeed. I currently work full time as a consultant to General Motors and am working at the Lake Orion Assembly plant as we are in the process of retooling that factory to build the new electric pickup trucks. I am also a student at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit and am nearing completion of my Masters in Pastoral Studies. I have 4 classes left before graduation. I have worked as a hospital chaplain at Beaumont as well as a Hospice care volunteer for several years in the Flint area. Both my wife and I are Oblates of St. Benedict and made our oblation with the Benedictine monastery in Oxford, MI. During our travels, after I retired from working directly for GM, we were blessed to volunteer and live in community with the Benedictine Sisters in Atchison, Kansas for 6 months. In kind of a life coming full circle moment, I attended St. Robert as a child with my grandparents Genevieve and Stanley Rymarz, so this is a bit like a homecoming for me.
