Servant Leader

Abbie Arribe

Hello! My name is Abbie and I am a missionary from the Lone Star State of Texas. I am returning to serve on SPIRITUS as a servant leader. I have a passion for music, so my favorite form of prayer is praise and worship. God's love is so overwhelming, and I can't wait to share that with our youth. 


Sara Engle

I am a cradle Catholic and am now a lay missionary, which is something I never thought I would do! 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 work with SPIRITUS and continue dedicating my life to helping people grow more intimately connected to Christ!

I’m a Wisconsin native with a heart for Christ! Before coming to SPIRITUS, I worked in policy and outreach initiatives for the Catholic Church in Minnesota and studied political science at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I also spent  summers working at Camp Tekakwitha. I’m so excited to encounter the Lord with you as we journey as missionary disciples on the way. God’s blessings!

Matthew Uchytil

Being raised in Greenville, I grew up attending SPIRITUS events regularly. Their example instilled in me a growing desire to share the joy of Christ with others, just as they did for me. Prior to SPIRITUS, my many years in FIRST Lego League and VEX Robotics led me to a passion for technology and a job as an application developer. When I am not coding, I enjoy winemaking, playing board games, disc golf, and no-handed cycling.
