Where I serve

Benedictine College is home to 1800 students in Atchison, KS - right on the Missouri River. Founded in 1858 by the monks of St. Benedict's Abbey (overlooking the campus), Benedictine has cultivated a reputation of both being an upstanding Catholic institution and of offering a prestigious education. However, FOCUS seeks to show college students richness of the faith as it is lived out over a lifelong devotion to Jesus Christ and his Church - so much more than mere education and morals. Therefore, I am excited to show the Catholic leaders of tomorrow how they can help me truly change the world. 

My Team, L to R: Dana Bouquet, myself, Danna Knight, Brynn Manning, Tom Manning (Team Director), Barrett Mahoney, Corbett Ourso III, Alex Kulik, and Greg Limieux. 

Please keep us in your prayers! St. Benedict, pray for us!

My Story

Born and raised in San Antonio, TX, I spent my last 3 years in college at the University of North Texas. Although I was decently involved in church growing up, my faith was radically impacted by the FOCUS Missionaries at UNT. Through sharing both their time and their very lives with me, I witnessed the difference between a life lived with Christ and a life lived for Christ. I spent the better part of those 3 years helping others to see the same, and it is through that ministry that God gently called me into becoming a full-time Catholic ministry. I am beyond excited to share the life-giving riches of the Gospel alongside my team, inspiring a Christ-centered life in the hearts of college students. 

Your Impact

My calling to become a full-time missionary is both radical and crucial: I am in a unique stage of my life (single, post-grad, etc.) where I am free to give of myself entirely to the mission of the Gospel. In doing so, I can be radically effective - accompanying college students through a crucial stage in their lives and showing them the light of the Christian faith. Much like Jesus and his Apostles, preaching the Gospel in other lands requires both complete abandonment and total reliance on those whom support us. 

Consider this quote, often attributed to Mother Teresa: "Some give by going, others go by giving. But without both, there is no mission." I have discerned that God is calling me to give by going, and if you feel that God is calling you to go by giving, please don't hesitate to contact me! It touches me to know that I have a team of supporters praying for me and giving to my mission - y'all are the fuel to my flame!
