More About Mrs. Lestina…

“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” - St Theresa of Calcutta

I feel so very blessed to be a part of such a vibrant, caring, faith-filled community.  I am a product of Catholic school education and understand the importance of establishing spiritual connections and moral values at a young age.  I am honored to be able to play a part in providing this foundation for the students at St. Gabriel.  

My husband, Craig, and I met freshman year at Catholic Memorial High School.  We have been married for over 20 years and are the proud parents of two sons.  They both graduated from St. Jerome Parish School in Oconomowoc, where we currently live.  I am sure that you will see us all at various school and parish events.  We look forward to being a part of the St. Gabriel family for years to come.
