Kathy Hoffman began her vocation as a high school teacher, and after taking a 20-year break from classroom teaching to raise three sons, she sensed a call to return to the profession she loves. In the time away, her passion for teaching and her love of the scriptures found expression in ministry as a lector and a catechist in her parish. With more than 20 years of experience in RCIA, Kathy enjoys the privilege of witnessing God at work in the lives of others. Parish ministry ultimately led her to pursue an M.A. degree in scripture and theology and a certificate of spiritual direction from Spring Hill College, where she discovered Ignatian spirituality. Kathy taught scripture and world religions at Blessed Trinity Catholic High School from 2003-2014 and continues to be active in interfaith education with a course that she developed for adults on the Abrahamic religions. Since 2013, Kathy has served as an instructor for the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s diaconate formation program. Kathy and her husband have been married for 45 years and are blessed to have their three adult sons, their wives, and seven grandchildren all living nearby.
