Our Staff & Volunteers


Fr. Larry Nickels, OFM

Executive Director

Fr. Larry recently joined the Connection.

He was born in Chicago, IL and has been a Franciscan for over 30 years.

He has served in a variety of ministries, including parishes, outreach and

provincial administration.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker,

Fr. Larry will offer counseling to participating clients and oversee our Emergency Aid programs.




Every Monday morning, our clients will be welcomed by the cheery smile of SHERRY STEVENSON.  She is also a member of theSecular Franciscan Order and has had a long-time love of Saints Francis & Clare. 

A retired teacher, Sherry still keeps active in a variety of activities at her home parish of St. Francis of Assisi in Oakville, as well as in the South County Kiwanis.

MARY JANE KUBIK responded to an announcement made at her parish, St.Wenceslaus over fifteen years ago and has been volunteering for us ever since.

Besides answering phones and greeting clients, Mary Jane also completes the bank balance and keeps the books for the Connection. She learned her skills at Famous Barr, where she worked in an office completing the budget and performing other management duties. She keeps volunteering to help other people, and because "it gives me something to do," she says with a laugh.
