On July 16, we will welcome our new Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry to the Cathedral! Rachel Meixner of Ashland OH obtained her BA in Theology (concentration in Youth Ministry) from Franciscan University of Steubenville, and her Master of Arts in Theology from the University of Notre Dame. She was a participant in the Notre Dame ECHO program, which allowed her to take classes in South Bend during the summer while working full-time for two years at a parish in Jacksonville, Fl where she was a leader in the youth ministry program and developed a young adult ministry. In her free time, Rachel enjoys painting, drawing, and photography. She also enjoys exploring and relaxing in the great outdoors – hiking, canoeing, kayaking, etc. – and has a great love for animals, especially horses and dogs. Rachel is eager to begin working as our new Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry.
