Meet the Office of Formation and Discipleship (OFD) Team

Each newsletter we will introduce you to a member of our team in the Office of Formation and Discipleship. We are all here to serve you!
Meet our Associate Director of Faith Formation-Metro, Michele McHale-Pickard! Michele’s responsibilities include supporting pastors and PCLs throughout the archdiocese in catechetical ministry and in advancing family faith formation, as well as serving as lead staff coordinator for the Atlanta Catechist Conference and as staff liaison to the Archdiocesan Forum for the RCIA.

Born and raised in Detroit, Michele graduated from Michigan State and still longs for paczki and better made potato chips! She and her husband, Terry, have been married 34 years and are parishioners at Sts. Peter & Paul in Decatur.


To hear from our Director, Andy Lichtenwalner, about upcoming OFD events, including YM events our office is sponsoring, check out “OFD Now” on the OFD website.
