My name is Renee Sykes and I have been a worshipping Catholic since childhood and a parishioner at St. Bernadette for 10 years. I am raising 2 children in the parish, who are active as Altar Servers and participate in the Youth Ministry and Girl Scouts. For 9 years I have been actively involved as a school parent and Girl Scout Troop Leader of the St. Bernadette Cadette and Senior Scouts for the last 4 years. I am a graduate of the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore and hold a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management, relocated to Chicago from Maryland in 1995 and have been working in the hospitality industry as a Human Resources professional ever since. I am excited about what’s going on at the parish currently and am thrilled to serve the parish in this capacity.
