Colleen grew up in a large Catholic family as number eight of ten children. Her father was a deacon, her brother is a priest.
She is descended from a long line of bishops, priests, nuns and religious, yet despite all that, Colleen says she rejected
faith from middle school through college in an effort to "find myself." In Colleen's words, "I returned after
what can only be
described as a profound and transformative moment. At my lowest point, I got down on my knees and cried out, "God, if
You are real,
please help me! If You change my life, I promise I will serve You every day for the rest of my life!" And she has done
Colleen served on the Bishop's Evangelization Committee for
the Diocese of Richmond, her parish council, organized retreats, events
events and pilgrimages, and was the leader of a very active
prayer and healing ministry for nearly seven years. In July 2020, at the height of the pandemic, she was offered the job of
Director of Programs and Development for Campus Ministry at
St. John University Parish on the campus of WVU in Morgantown. She and her husband, Dan, have 8 children. Colleen's
as a wife and mother is what she cherishes most, but her role as campus minister and spiritual mother is a very close second.
Please join us to hear Colleen's inspiring testimony!
