Carol Wroblewski – Director of Christian Education
I have been coming to the Federated Church of Hyannis since I was a baby. I went through all the years of Sunday school and became a member at age 15. Through the years I’ve brought my children and grandchildren here. Over the years I have volunteered as a Sunday school teacher up to running the entire program. I have lived On Cape Cod all my life except the years I spent in the United States Air Force. I was a bookkeeper for 25 years with the Community Action Committee of Cape Cod & Islands, Inc. I love to walk, dabble in art, and do things with my grandchildren.
We wish Kristy Kerins , our recently retired organist for over 25 years, all the best as she embarks on the next journey of her life. She is much beloved and will be roundly missed. We enjoyed her artistic interpretation of the music and occasional story-telling to bring the back-story to life.
