Saint Meinrad has hired two new staff members for Phase 2 of the Young Adult Initiative.
Cassie Schutzer will serve as the project administrator, providing an overarching vision for the second phase of the project. Cassie has a background in young adult ministry and communications, and she spent the past seven years working for a parish in Chapel Hill, NC.
“I cannot wait to contribute to the good work of the Saint Meinrad Young Adult Initiative. I am constantly in awe of the vibrancy, authenticity, vulnerability, and holiness of the young Church. There is a deep desire to know Christ, a deep desire to belong. I am grateful for the opportunity to accompany parishes as they learn new ways to minister to their people.”
Johnny Sherfick will serve as the program manager for the Young Adult Initiative, responsible for administrative tasks and day-to-day operations at Saint Meinrad. Johnny has a background in teaching and has worked in various Catholic organizations over the years.
“I feel like I have always had a strong calling to not only be a part of, but also help create and facilitate the growth of a strong Catholic faith community. As a husband and father, I have a desire to help create a transformational community so that other young adults and families have a place to learn and grow in their faith.”
We are excited to welcome Cassie and Johnny to the Saint Meinrad staff! Please keep them in your prayers.
