My name is Kristen Juda, and I am honored to be a part of the Benedict XVI program for the new year! I graduated last spring from Franciscan University of Steubenville with a BA in Theology and BA in Catechesis. I am blessed to have been a part of many diverse ministry opportunities. I worked for a year with Edge middle school ministry and help co-create a high school girl’s group at my parish in Raleigh, NC. I have also been to Jamaica three times to serve the needs of the Diocese of Montego Bay and minister to the youth and families there. I am passionate about ministry and I cannot wait to work with each one of you! I will be working primarily as the Faith Formation and Youth Ministry intern. You can reach me at email@example.com. Thank you for welcoming me to your parish!
