1. What made you decide to volunteer at OYP?
I wanted to use the gifts the Lord revealed He had given to me during my time at SOW. To serve Him and His people in a meaningful way. Through my discernment and serving at the SHINE retreat, I sensed that the Lord was inviting me to consider volunteering with the poly desk at OYP to perhaps journey with the students. After speaking to a mentor and continuing to pray and discern I said yes to the Lord to volunteer.
2. What gives you the most joy in your work at OYP?
Encountering and journeying with young people who desire the Lord and who pursue Him wholeheartedly despite the challenges they may face. Their faith continues to stir my faith and it gives me great joy and hope that our church is alive.
3. If you had to pick just one dish that you had to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Waffles and ice cream
4. What is your favourite way to relax?
Taking long walks in nature with a friend, enjoying the beauty of God’s creation and listening to Catholic podcasts such as Godsplaining and Pints with Aquinas.
