I’m pretty into Jesus Christ, Crossfit, theology, tacos, and the Chicago Blackhawks. My favorite people in the world to hang out with are my family, but I also have been richly blessed with the best of friends. Outside of work, I can usually be found lifting weights, nerding out over theology, or laughing at dad jokes. My top two missions in life are to become a saint and to drink as much good coffee as possible along the way. I am the Co-Director of Evangelization & Catechesis at Saint Paul the Apostle Parish in Gurnee, IL, and have been profoundly impacted by the beauty and sheer awesomeness of the kids, teens, and families I get to work with there.
Megan holds a Bachelor's Degree in Theology from Ave Maria University and a Master's Degree in Liturgy from the Liturgical Institute of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake.
Growing up I wanted to be a circus clown mainly because I already had red hair and can juggle. Thankfully, God had other plans. I consider myself a minimalist, but not when it comes to tacos and coffee. My free time is typically consumed with water skiing, running, or attempting to learn a new musical instrument. I'm fascinated by books, but rarely make it past page fifty in any given one. Is sarcasm a language? If so, I'm definitely bilingual. I am the Coordinator of Faith Formation at Holy Cross Parish in Deerfield, IL where I am continually inspired by the teens and families I minister to each day.
Benjamin holds a Bachelor's Degree in Catechetics and Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville.
