Where I serve

I am excited to share that I will be serving at Harvard University in Boston this year! What an adventure. God continues to surprise and delight me when I place my trust in Him with my yes. I could never have imagined the plans He has for me, I never thought life would get this good. I cannot wait to see what He has in mind for our team at Harvard. 

My Story

Since coming into my faith, I have wanted nothing more than to share this love and joy with others. I come from a small town in the West of Ireland where baptized Catholics are many, but those practicing are few. Through a difficult experience, Jesus entered my heart at a young age and I just knew that there was something more to this life, that something within me had changed, and that I would spend the rest of my life being grateful to Him for that moment. Over the years, I got involved with different forms of ministry and met the most incredible people who were living out the Catholic faith the way it was intended to be lived out. Many crazy experiences led me to fall in love with the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church and I knew I could never turn back. 

Last year, I became involved with FOCUS ministry at my college campus in Dublin. I was blown away by the impact that my little yes could have on transforming people's lives. It was a privilege to walk with a group of young and wonderful women, to challenge and support each other, and to grow together. I cannot put into words what an honor it was for me, to be able to witness them growing in friendship with Jesus, and for the first time, realizing that they have a purpose, that they are loved, and that they are worth dying for. My heart aches that God is blessing me with this unbelievable opportunity to walk with men and women in this way full-time. 

Your Impact

My favorite verse of scripture is Acts 22:11 - "And when I could not see... I was led by the hand by those who were with me, and came into Damascus".

With FOCUS, we are given the unique opportunity to fundraise our salaries and to invite others into our mission through their prayers and financial support. I know God is calling me to drop everything to serve him full-time through this ministry, but I cannot walk with people to Damascus without the support of mission partners. If you are interested in partnering with me or you would like to hear more about my journey or what this ministry will look like, please let me know of the best way to contact you. I would be honored for you to join me on this mission! Please pray for me and let me know how I can be praying for you.
