Where I serve
2019-Present St. Bernadette Youth Ministry. Springfield, VA.
2018-19 All Saints Youth Ministry. Manassas, VA.
I grew up in Massachusetts, raised Catholic and encountered Jesus in a personal way through the Eucharist while in college at Virginia Tech. Through the help of the example many faithful Christians, I decided to follow Christ as a student and live out my Catholic faith through a life of prayer, community and the Sacraments. I made commitments to Youth Apostles while as a student and discerned a call to youth ministry and become a missionary with Youth Apostles following graduation. I love to serve and care for youth as they remind me of myself while I was a teen: lost, thirsting for a relationship, seeking answers and meaning to my life. I believe that God thirsts for young people to know and love him, become Saints, and live with Him eternally. My passion is to share God’s love with teenagers, invite them into a relationship with Christ and form them into life-long disciples of Jesus Christ.
I believe it is a privilege and an honor to partner with others to fulfill the Great Commission. I decided to fully rely on the spiritual and financial support of others to complete this mission because of the blessing it is to share in this work with others. If you are interested in learning more about the mission and ways to join my mission support team, please let me know the best way to contact you and we can schedule an appointment. Thank you and God Bless.
