Hi, my name is María Rivera-Bermúdez, wife of Fernando, proud mother of four children, and the lucky grandmother to eight beautiful children. I have been a member of the Saint Mary of the Annunciation Parish since 1971 when my family relocated from Puerto Rico to Cambridge. I have so much love for Saint Mary, as well as many stories which deepen my love. I was a religious education teacher for many years.  Also I was in the youth group, and I served on the Parish Council. In the year 2000 I became the Director of Religious Education. I will describe myself as friendly, easy going and approachable. With that said I hope we can chat sometime. I would love to talk to you about my wonderful Parish.
