For decades Louise Ripley has served St. Dominic Savio Parish in different roles as lector, catechist, Eucharistic minister, parish council member and more.
She joined the northeast Edmonton parish 40 years ago when it was twinned with St. Francis of Assisi Parish. She arrived just after the parish rectory was built in 1972 and the church building was erected in 1974.
