College Ministry

When a student leaves high school, there is often a feeling of “what’s next?” College Ministry offers an opportunity to reconnect with your faith and your parish, especially during school breaks. Grow with us as a disciple through prayer, service, and socials. Whether currently attending school or not, this ministry is for anyone 18-21!

College Summer Mission Trip

We traveled for our 3rd College Mission Trip to Kingston, Jamaica, in July. 

This mission trip is designed specifically for college students (18+) to travel to a new place and encounter Christ in the poor. We work with Food for the Poor, Inc., to plan this trip and connect it to our parish’s Operation Starfish ministry.

Our next trip is planned for July 6-10, 2020, and we plan to return to Haiti.

Meet our Director

Welcome to College Ministry! I was born and raised in Burke (rare, I know) and attended Nativity growing up. After joining a FOCUS bible study in college and learning how to have a personal relationship with Jesus, I felt sure that I should work in ministry. I returned to Nativity in 2015 and have LOVED meeting Nativity’s amazing college students. Let’s get some coffee and talk!

Meet our Program Assistant

Hi! I’m Mary.
If I’m not in the Youth Ministry Room managing Instagram accounts, then you can find me at Trader Joe’s buying 72% Dark Chocolate or in a field practicing photography.

My job is to assist Alison in any way I can to make sure that our ministries run smoothly and attract more people to Jesus Christ. Contact us anytime for more information about what our College, Young Adult, and Family ministries have to offer you.

God bless, and we hope to see you soon!
