Pastoral Associate at St. Peter Catholic Church, Douglas, Michigan
Rick Hardy’s career has included some 30 years as Director of Liturgy and Music in parishes in Michigan, Arizona, and California. In a semi-departure from this work, in 1986 he took a position as Director of Artists and Repertoire at North American Liturgy Resources, then headquartered in Phoenix. He then returned to parish ministry, and completed an MA in Pastoral Theology at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles in 2009. He returned to Phoenix in 2015 for a position as Director of Programming at the Franciscan Renewal Center, where he became associated with Spiritual Direction Rising. He currently serves as Pastoral Associate at St. Peter Catholic Church in Douglas, Michigan.
Rick and Nancy met when they were hired — on the same day — at Immaculate Heart of Mary parish in Lansing, Michigan. They were married in 1988.
