The New Guys — Meet Nick Pierlot and Andrew Hildebrandt
We are excited to welcome two new staff members on the St. Therese team: Nicholas Pierlot (Assistant Director of Formation) and Andrew Hildebrandt (Office Administration).
Nicholas Pierlot — Assistant Director of Faith Formation
Nick works with Jim Anderson, our Director of Faith Formation, instructing and facilitating programs at St Therese. Born and raised in Eastern Canada, Nicholas Pierlot is a endeavouring theologian, having obtained his B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Prince Edward Island and an M.A. in Catholic Applied Theology from the Maryvale Institute in Birmingham, England. Nicholas is passionate about Catholicism's intellectual and spiritual traditions and is dedicated to building Catholic evangelical culture. Nicholas also has a small family, composed of his wife, Denise, and their infant daughter, Rosé Zélie. In his spare time, Nicholas loves brewing beer and wine, physical activity, reading literature, and being a boardgames enthusiast.
Andrew Hildebrandt — Office Administration
Andrew Hildebrandt is heading up the Office Administration role here at St. Therese. After what Andrew describes as "a miraculous conversion back to Christ and to the Catholic Church" last year, he decided to leave his career as a professional engineer with the City of Saskatoon in order to journey deeper into his understanding of the faith. Andrew sees working at St. Therese as a God-sent opportunity to enter into this journey, while also pursuing a Masters in Theology online through Augustine Institute (Denver, CO). Outside of work and studies, Andrew likes to make, fix, and build anything—especially when it involves woodworking— and playing the piano. But most importantly, he enjoys being a husband to Shancelle (St. Therese - Class of 2009), and a father to their five children, Marshall, Emerich, Élisse, Camden, and baby #5 (due January 2019).
