Lanette Mele joined the St. Mary’s staff in July of 2001 in the role of Office Manager. Her organization skills and ability to see the big picture are what helps to keep things running smoothly. She recently added the role of Staff Assistant for Liturgy and is enjoying new challenges in that role. She and her husband, Tony, live in Whitmore Lake and love spending their free time with their extended families.
Carol Konczal joined SMSP in January 2007. A self proclaimed jack-of-all-trades, her role as administrative assistant/receptionist is a great position for her because there’s never a dull moment! A native Michigander and cradle Catholic, Carol left both for several years and decided to “come back home” after exploring new things. She and her husband Jeff have two adult children.
