Patricia Scouten,
Parish Minister–Funerals

Hi, my name is Patricia Scouten. For fifteen years, I served the St. Charles Borromeo parish as Administrator of the Borromeo Prayer Center – the best job that anyone could ever have. When I decided in retire in July 2008, the Prayer Center was closed and the building demolished. Fr. John was one of the people responsible for hiring me as Administrator and I retired as he was coming to the parish as Pastor.

In 2013, Fr. John asked me to come back to St. Charles and he offered me the position of Parish Minister for Funeral Preparation. Once again, I have such an incredible position. It is a privilege for me to meet with people at such a painful period in their lives and to be able to journey with them as they say goodbye to their loved ones. During the years I have worked at St. Charles, I have been involved in the Adult Confirmation process, Teaching 5, 6 or 7 grades at Summer Camp—wherever I am needed, RCIA, visiting the sick in the hospitals, and co-chairing a bereavement group with my husband. I am married to Jonathan Scouten and the mother of 5 children, grandmother to 16 and great-grandmother to 2. I love to read, knit, walk in the rain (I was born in England) and share my faith.
