Michael Fournier was born in Massachusetts and raised on the Connecticut shoreline in a Catholic family. He continued his education in the communications and business fields at Lyndon State College in northern Vermont. He has spent the last 20 years in automotive management and met his wife Jennifer in 2003. With their daughter Emma and son Christian, they were introduced to St. Thomas's parish nearly five years ago when they attended the beautiful baptism of their friend's daughter. They were enamored with the Church, Father Ray, and the welcome feeling they all shared in the parish community. As they felt strongly about giving back, they joined the Altar Guild and assisted with the Sunday School program early on. Mike joined the vestry in 2014 and serves as a vestry representative on the Board of Managers of St. Thomas's Day School. When he’s not working he enjoys spending time with his family outdoors bicycling, hiking, kayaking, and living close to Long Island Sound.
