I actually first started with Vagabond Missions as a volunteer, before ever working for the ministry. I was drawn by the chance to share with the broken-hearted the joy and peace Christ had brought into my own broken heart. The teens were Christ incarnate, and I couldn’t turn away once I recognized that. After a few years of living life and journeying towards the Cross alongside some of the most amazing teens I’ve ever met, I was sold – I was called to continue serving as a missionary in Pittsburgh. I haven’t regretted it since!
One of my favorite moments as a missionary is whenever I take teens to experience the Eucharist is mass or adoration for the first time!
