Katherine Carlson

Pastoral Associate for Discipleship


I grew up in a suburb of Detroit MI, where my two parents still live. I went to Valparaiso University for college to play volleyball and a year of basketball. For the past 4 years after college, I have been working in Catholic ministry and was a FOCUS missionary at Minnesota State Mankato for the past 2 years. Along with my Business and Sports Management degrees, I am working on my Masters in Theology at the Augustine Institute.


I run evangelization and faith formation opportunities, as well as bringing back mission trips to the parish. If you want to grow in your faith and get involved in the community, I would love to connect with you!

What do you enjoy most about your ministry?

I love seeing people encounter Jesus Christ in new ways and having their eyes be opened to the reality of God's presence in their life. It is beautiful to see people's hearts, minds and lives transformed to discover their true identity and purpose in life - to be a disciple and make disciples!

How can people get involved in your area of ministry?

Alpha is a great place to start! We come together to share a meal, watch a video, and have a conversation. Mission trips are an exciting opportunity to encounter Christ in the poor that I want to make available to you! I would also love to connect young adults to our growing group.
