District Superintendent and Staff

Rev. Cathy Boileau

Rev. Catherine Boileau has been a part of the York District since 1994. Ordained as a deacon in 1992, and an elder in 1996, Cathy grew up in Chicago and attended high school in the Philadelphia area. She attended Bowdoin College and served as the Children’s Librarian at the Mifflin County Library system through whom she received her call to ministry through First United Methodist, Lewistown. Cathy did her studies in Christian Formation and Discipleship at Fuller Seminary, and completed her M. Div at Eastern Baptist Seminary (now Palmer Seminary).

Early in her call, Cathy was a part of the seed sowing of two church plants, one English speaking, and one Spanish speaking. She and her husband, Mike, worked for 7 years with churches and children in the urban neighborhoods of Camden, Atlantic City and Trenton for the former South Jersey Annual Conference, before coming back to the Susquehanna Annual Conference.

Cathy has a passion for discipleship, spiritual formation, leadership development and missions. Cathy has served in the York District for all 28 years of her ministry in the Susquehanna Conference, having served in York and Franklin counties. Cathy is passionate about creating new expressions of Christian community that include those outside the walls of the church. Having served in several multicultural contexts, she also believes the church is at its best when the church recognizes itself as a global community, in which peoples from all nations and cultures are present at the table, freely sharing Christ together.

Cathy was a founding member of the board of directors for Noah’s House and Gracie’s Place, the first two accredited rehabs in Franklin County. She and her husband Mike share a deep commitment to the people of Haiti and have served on multiple mission teams both here and abroad. They have a long commitment to alleviating global poverty especially through development of sources of clean water, micro loans and education.

Cathy and Mike re the parents of two grown sons, Samuel and Jonah, and have been adopted as parents of one very spoiled dachshund named Pippen. They feel blessed to be called into ministry with the York District in this season of challenges for the local church.


My name is Kraig L. Faust and my wife, Sue, and I live in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. We moved there in 2012 upon our retirements.

I have served as a United Methodist Pastor for forty years in the central part of Pennsylvania. Our family had the privilege of working with congregations in Harrisburg, Tyrone and Williamsport areas. I am currently serving as an assisting elder in the York District and as part-time pastor with the South Franklin Charge.

We have three married children, Amy in Corning, New York, Jessica in Olney, Maryland and Aaron in Golden, Colorado. We have four grandsons. One of the joys of retirement is the ability to visit family more frequently on the weekends.

By now I am sure that you have heard from the New AA in the district, and its about time you have a face with the name. My name is Autumn Christine and I am new in the District. I just moved to Hanover with my Husband, Todd, who just began a new appointment at Hanover Grace. I have 2 kiddos, Paytyn, 9, and Tristan 6. I have felt a calling to be more involved in the church since before Todd answered his call, and I believe I have found the place I am to be. To help shine the light of Christ, and use my gifts, which are more administrative and behind the scenes, and feel like I am making an impact. If you are near the office, please stop in and see me and say hi. I can’t wait to meet all of you and be in ministry with you. Blessings!!!
