My name is Jim Read and I am the Pastoral Minister for Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Born and raised around Chicago in Catholic family. My Father was a police officer for 30 years and my Mother is the Assistant to the Village Manager in the town of Huntley Illinois. I have two older brothers and two wonderful nieces. My mother had gotten me involved with youth ministry in Jr. High and I fell in love with the church and Christ. This completely transformed my life so I wanted to do the same for someone else. I went to St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa and completed degrees in Theology and Philosophy. In that time I volunteered in my home parishes Youth Ministry planning and leading retreats and youth nights. While at school in Iowa, I volunteered in a local parish youth ministry. I love to work with the youth to help them both deepen their knowledge of our faith and grow ever closer to our Lord.
