We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father’s love for us and our real capacity to become the image of His Son, Jesus.    – Pope Saint John Paul II

Where I serve

I am currently serving my third year as a campus missionary at the University of Minnesota – Duluth!

My Story

Throughout my time in college, Jesus revealed Himself to me in a way that has changed my life. This change within me has convicted me even more of the reality spoken in John 10:10, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly,” and I want to share that with those around me.

Jesus tells us in the Gospel of John, “this is eternal life, that they should know You, the one true God, and the one whom You sent, Christ Jesus.” As a missionary, that line sums up what this is all about: to personally know Jesus, and to help reveal Him to others through my own life and how I choose to live it, intentional relationships with all those I encounter, personal investment in a few, and a personal commitment to sharing the Gospel rooted in the Sacraments and Scripture.

In the end, I hope that every young women who steps foot on a college campus might know her worth and identity as a daughter, even when the world seems to be telling her otherwise, all through a personal relationship with the Father.

Your Impact

I cannot be on this mission alone. It is through spiritual and financial support from mission partners that I am able to share the love of Christ with those who most need to hear it. This is where you come in! If you are interested in learning about how you can join me on mission, or you just want to know what a missionary does on campus, I’d love to talk with you! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via phone or email to hear more – it would be an honor to share with you!

“Some give by going to the missions. Others go by giving to the missions. Without both, there are no missions.” -Saint John Paul II
