Greetings Christ the King!
It was an adventurous journey that brought me to serve as your new Director of Youth Ministry. I did my undergraduate studies at Boston College, but Notre Dame still accepted me into the Echo Program, from which I graduated this past July. While in Echo, I served in two different parishes in the Diocese of Camden, NJ, where I had the privilege to meet some amazing young men and women, eat some delicious food, and be amazed at the flamboyant styling of some real housewives of New Jersey.
The North East was quite a change of pace for this Midwest girl. I grew up in Cincinnati with my eight siblings, all of whom are amazing individuals and some of my best friends. But a change of pace was good, and I learned a lot. Now I am so grateful to be moving back where people are more relaxed and spaces are more tastefully decorated.
Soon after I left New Jersey, I moved home, finished my degree, got married, went on a honeymoon, and moved to South Bend (whew!). My husband, Shane, and I are so excited to be settling in South Bend and to be members of Christ the King Parish. I look forward to meeting you and serving you in many different ways. Please feel free to reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org ) with any kind of concern, and know that you are all in my prayers.
