Hi! I'm Karissa Forde. I grew up in northeast Iowa and moved down to Cedar Rapids to attend Mount Mercy. I worked at the Marriott for many years in several different roles. It's possible you saw me there if you ever attended an event. After graduation from Mount Mercy I met Jon. After we got engaged, he went through RCIA here at St. Pius X. We were married here and our 3 children, Alex, Landry, and Sebastian were all baptized here. I have been a stay at home mom and I have loved the time with my kids. During my time as a parishioner here I have been active in many different ministries. The new position as Fellowship and Stewardship Coordinator is the position I never knew I wanted, but is a perfect fit. God has led me here and I could not be more excited to serve this incredible community.
