Servant Leader

Sara Engle

I am a cradle Catholic from Oregon. I am a professional musician, so making music is my favorite activity; I also love reading, writing, running, watching movies, and socializing. I am very excited to return to SPIRITUS and continue dedicating my life to helping people grow more intimately connected to Christ!

Wyatt Coiner

I am from northern Indiana, spent two years in college seminary, and have now left to follow God's call elsewhere. Youth ministry has always been my favorite form of ministry, and I'm hoping to spark the faith of the youth the same way mine has been sparked. I'm always up for adventure any way I can find it; an adventure in faith being the best!

Ashley Maus

I grew up on my family’s dairy farm in central Minnesota where I was regularly found milking cows and driving tractors. I graduated from South Dakota State University where I majored in Dairy Production and Dairy Manufacturing. My interactions at the Newman Center at SDSU have inspired me to serve as a missionary and join the SPIRITUS team. I look forward to a great year of experiencing God's love and sharing it with others.

Hi! Praise the Lord for SPIRITUS Team 13! I am so excited to be back serving the youth of the Church! Some of my favorite things outside of the sacraments include spending time with family, playing board games, skiing and snowboarding, and hearing/telling a good pun. I am so looking forward to being back spreading the true joy of Jesus this mission year!

Caroline Partyka

I am from Massachusetts but I am a country gal at heart! You can catch me wearing a cowgirl hat and two-stepping whenever I can! I reverted back to the Catholic Church in 2016 and, since then, have had a growing love for Jesus and a call to serve others. I am  a youth ministry intern at St. Pius X Parish, Appleton. I’m both humbled and honored to be serving the youth of Wisconsin!
