Ministry Leadership

Our ministry relies on wonderful volunteer leaders!

We have a Young Adult Core Team that meets monthly to prayerfully discern the direction of our ministry. We also have volunteer coordinators who lead different event.

Leadership Team

Meet our Director

Welcome to YA Ministry! I was born and raised in Burke (rare, I know) and attended Nativity growing up. I have a BA in Theology from Mount St. Mary’s University and have been working in parish ministry since 2012. I think finding a faith community post-college is one of the most difficult things, and I’ve loved helping to create that for my peers. 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!
