Why I work in Youth Ministry: I was asked by our pastor to take on the position in 2012 without knowing anything about ministry.  Since then I have been supported by and inspired by hundreds of teens, adult volunteers, families, and religious within our diocese.  I love my job, which fuels my own faith and complements my other life as a middle school teacher.
