Father Erbacher became pastor in 1986 and said that Brames "was one of the first individuals to say they would help, and she has continued in a very splendid manner." He continued, I feel very confident and very well pleased with her sharing of the faith. Whatever the age level, if she sees a need, she very willingly reaches out.

"She asks our opinion on what they want of the class and how she could change to make it better.," she added.
