Mary Therese Craig


Mary Therese Craig is the Executive Director of The Reason For Our Hope Foundation.  She is happy to be able to share her faith every day through her work at the Foundation.

Mary Therese was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania.  She attended Gannon University for the Legal Studies Program.  Prior to her employment at the Foundation, she worked as a paralegal at the law firm of MacDonald, Illig, Jones & Britton.  She has three children and two grandchildren who live outside of Erie.  She misses having her family in Erie, but enjoys visiting them in Baltimore, Myrtle Beach, and Beverly Hills!    Mary Therese also enjoys spending time with her extended family – – her Mom is 93 years old and is one of 14 children and there are over 145 cousins!

An important part of Mary Therese’s life is volunteering at her church, Saint Joseph Bread of Life Community, where she is a Eucharistic Minister and Greeter, past Chairperson for Oktoberfest, and serves on many other ministries.  In her spare time, she enjoys walking, biking, making beach glass jewelry, and sewing.   This coming November, Mary Therese will become the wife of James E. Menger.

Mary Therese is passionate about sharing her faith with others and is so excited to be working at The Reason For Our Hope Foundation!
