meet SSJ Associates John and Tammy Mang

Tammie and John Mang became associates in 2013.  Sister Mary Fromknecht was John’s mentor while Sister Marianne Stuckert was Tammie’s.

John is an ordained Deacon and is assigned to Our Lady of Peace parish in Erie. In September, John became a full time chaplain at Lakeland Hospice. John spends much of his time performing works of charity, including visiting patients in hospitals and those who are homebound.

Tammie is currently the Faith Formation Director at Our Lady of Peace parish.  Prior to that, she was a teacher with the Diocese of Erie for 20 years. Although she is busy with her volunteer and parish work,  she enjoys reading when she has the time.  

The Mangs have one daughter, Kaitlyn, a sophomore at Clarion University, who previously worked at the CLC front desk. 

Tammie and John support each other and live by the following:

“In the spirit of Father Medaille and through the grace of God, we hope to leave people a little better than we found them.”

We are blessed to have John and Tammy as associates.
