Leopoldo Ruffolo

My name is Leopoldo and I’m a missionary at Doane University!

Where I serve

Doane is located in Crete Nebraska, just a stone throw away from Lincoln. I serve with 11 other missionaries and live just a few miles away from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary.

My Story

I spent the first ten years of my life in Wisconsin, falling in love with holy mother church and being encouraged to join the priesthood every step of the way. Not sure what’ll come of that, but the Holy Spirit will show me sooner or later. I wound up in Colorado, where I went to University and became involved in a litany of extracurricular activities with my Newman center. Now I find myself on an adventure with FOCUS, and I’d love for you to join me!

Your Impact

I’m going to be working with students and the incarcerated, so your support will help my efforts to evangelize both. Through prayer and outreach, I will try to bring Christ to where he is being denied most. I’ll be leading Bible studies, discipleship groups and undergoing formation of my own. Your support is instrumental in my efforts regarding all of these areas.
