Sigrid “Sammi” Sorci

My husband, Sal, and I came to Epiphany 17 ½ years ago when we were looking to help out with serving Thanksgiving Dinner. Our search led us to Fr. Jon and Epiphany. Sal went to Epiphany and spoke with Fr. Jon for about 30 minutes and he came home and told me that we had found a new church. We came to the Monterey area for two reasons: 1st a teaching job for me and 2nd Sal has a lot of family here. I graduated from Humboldt State 1998 and received my teaching credential from Humboldt in 1999. I got my first teaching job in Castroville. I taught 6th grade math and science for 4 years, 8th grade algebra for 12 years and 3rd grade for 2 years. I had to retire early to take care of Sal. The minute I first started teaching I knew that I had found the job that I truly loved and always wished that I had started earlier in my life. I have been a truly active member of Epiphany for the last eight years. I love our church, Fr. Jon, Robert, and all of our people here. I can truly call all of you my friends. When I am asked about my church, I always tell people it is the “The little church that could”. Then I explain all of the wonderful things that we do, under the guidance of Fr. Jon, for our community. My first Christmas wrapping party was a surprise to me. The amount of people that showed up to wrap presents for children in need. There must have been at least 40 people or more and we wrapped presents for 93 children. For me, the community, the conversation, the laughter, the music, and the joy in the room was contagious. I am proud to be a member of our Church Board. Helping Fr. Jon with the tasks of our church is something I enjoy doing. I never knew how much it takes to run a church and sometimes it is mind boggling. I truly love this church and everyone who is a part of our church community.
