Jim Stavinoha

Church Activities Director

Jim coordinates with the Community Life Director of the parish to obtain access to and use of facilities as needed by the Council. This is usually done a year in advance. Jim also schedules Corporate Communion - a quarterly celebration of the Eucharist by Knights as a group. Jim makes sure the Council is involved in the RSVP Program that supports seminarians. Jim wasted little time becoming involved after joining the council in April. He worked the concession stand counter during the youth baseball World Series, cooked during both the parish’s 40th anniversary picnic and the Vacation Bible School finale and helped with the set-up for the Fall Festival rummage operation. Jim is in his second go-round as a Knight. He initially joined years ago when he was a student at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. He’s retired following 20 years in the U.S. Army and another career that culminated with him working for a manufacturer of scientific lab equipment. He retired from the Army in 1989 as a major. Jim grew up just south of San Antonio in the small town of Jourdanton. He met his wife of 45 years, Sharon, on a blind date at a fraternity party. Sharon works as a nurse for a neurological practice in Mansfield. They have three grown children – Jennifer, Tracy and Corey along with four grandchildren – Tracy’s Ethan, Madeline and Eli plus Jennifer’s Addison. The Stavinohas live in Cedar Hill.
