Hello Seekers! I’m Angela and I began my role as Director of Admissions this past February. I first visited CTU in 2006 as an “older young adult” participant in the first Catholics on Call Conference. I enrolled in the Master of Divinity program the following fall, leaving a social worker position I’d held the past few years because I felt called to something more.
At CTU, I am here to accompany those who have discerned that this “something more” includes further theological study and ministerial preparation. I’ll help you to navigate the applications process and, once you are admitted, continue to walk with you until you walk through our doors, assisting you in the transition to student life at CTU. (Remember, I was in your shoes just a few short years ago!) You can also reach out to me for assistance in the Federal Student Loan application process, which I facilitate in collaboration with the Business Office.
Both my ministerial and social work perspective inform my work, and I continue to be interested in the intersection between spirituality and emotional well-being. This background also inspires my life outside the office with St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Evanston, IL and the Ignatian Spirituality Project.
My current favorite quote is from St. Irenaeus: “The glory of God is human being fully alive,” which you’ll learn in Steve Bevans’ Trinity and Mission course. It is one of my great joys to witness students become more “fully alive” as they immerse themselves in learning. I look forward to discussing the possibility of making this happen for at CTU!
