Meet The Missionaries
of Team 14
This is my second year at SPIRITUS, and I am a Servant Leader. I left my teaching job to try and discern the priesthood. I love to read and write. I am also a published poet. My favorite form of prayer is the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Adoration.
I am from Michigan and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville. I enjoy writing, painting & hiking. I attended a youth conference that changed my life, and I want to bring that same inspiration to others and help them to know how precious they are in God’s eyes.
I am from Madison and attended UW-Oshkosh. I enjoy being outside and hanging with family at our cabin in Northern Wisconsin. I look forward to serving others and bringing joy to their lives.
I'm originally from Iowa, and I graduated from St. Norbert College with a bachelor's in philosophy. Jesus seems to always lead me back to Wisconsin. I look forward to sharing the love of Jesus and growing in divine intimacy with Our Lord!
I grew up in northern Minnesota with 6 siblings. I like spending time doing anything that involves friends, sports, or the outdoors. I’m excited to serve on SPIRITUS to impact the youth of Wisconsin in the same way that my life was impacted several years ago.
I am a cradle Catholic and grew up here in the Fox Valley. Besides sharing my faith I love talking comics, sci-fi, and history.
I am from Ohio but have lived in the Fox Valley for the past two years. My favorite things are Jesus, talking about St. Therese of Lisieux, sewing and being in nature! I look forward to being an instrument of God's love for all the youth I encounter this mission year!
I am from the New York Catskill Mountains. I love hiking, climbing trees, swimming, and listening to birdsong. Nature is where I feel closest to God and His bounty is plainly visible there for all who seek it. I look forward to strengthening my bond with God through SPIRITUS!
I am about to graduate from Franciscan University with a bachelor's degree in Theology. My favorite forms of prayer are Eucharistic Adoration and the Rosary. I am someone who simply wants to serve God and His people by trying to bring His love and joy to every person I encounter.
I am from Maryland and attended Mount St. Mary's University. I taught middle school science before joining SPIRITUS. I enjoy exploring God's cathedral, aka the great outdoors! I am excited to share this year with young people as we grow in love for Christ.
I was raised in the mountains of Wyoming doing things like growing enormous sunflowers, backpacking and camping. I am always down for an adventure or a good conversation! I am excited to give myself completely to the mission and to the people I will encounter this year!
I am from California and went to Tulane University, where I studied Anthropology and Italian. Although I can be a little shy, I love getting to know people and listening to their stories.
