“I’m excited to contribute to the good work that’s happening in 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.”
