Catherine Neal

    Who am I?  I'm the proud (and occasionally tired) mother of Sarah and Taylor, and grateful wife of Chris Neal.  I grew up in Stone Mountain, GA, where I was raised Episcopalian.  I completed engineering school at UVA, then earned my Masters in Engineering from Virginia Tech.  After working outside D.C. for several years, I moved to San Francisco, where I met my husband.  My Tarheel husband convinced me that Chapel Hill is the best place to raise a family, so we moved here in 2006.  


     What do I do at Christ Church?  I am the Assistant for Children's Ministries, part-time.   I love being a part of Vacation Bible School, the Christmas pageant, Sunday School, and family fellowship opportunities here.  (My introduction to Vacation Bible School at CUMC 3 years ago was the initial catalyst for really getting involved.)  I am thrilled to be here!


      Something interesting about me is:  I used to work on spy satellite communications for Lockheed Martin.  Earlier, at UVA, I was in an incredible a cappella group.  I love to sing, hike, jog, and read.


      My favorite Bible passage is Psalm 139, especially verse 5:  "You hem me in, behind and before, you lay your hand upon me."
