Kathy Pfister

Director of Celebration! Childcare

Kathy has been in early childhood education for over 35 years, and has been acting director of Celebration! Childcare since 2006. She began her career at Messiah Lutheran in Park Ridge. Kathy worked at Messiah for over 14 years. The Pfister family moved to Lake County and Kathy began working for New Generations in Lindenhurst. After being in the Christian education field her first 14 years she really missed the environment and knew Holy Cross would be a good fit for her. Kathy appreciates the ministry that happens on a daily basis in the Celebration wing. From guiding parents to special services that they may be in need of for their child or getting a family a prayer blanket for their child’s upcoming surgery, Holy Cross and Celebration work hand and hand to bring the services and support to the families of Lake County. This joint effort is an important ministry not often seen by the average eye on Sunday morning. Holy Cross’ outreach and support to families through Celebration means a lot to working families in Lake County. A family new to the area stated to Miss Kathy “Your staff and church was there for us when we were new here and felt we had no one.” Exciting things happen on a daily basis at Celebration and Kathy would invite you to pay them a visit by popping in to read a story sing a song with the children or just come by to say “Hi”.


Kathy has been a Holy Cross Church member for over 20 years. In the early years of her membership she taught Sunday School and Confirmation class. Kathy also loves crafting and traveling with her husband in their motorcoach to various raceways.
