SOPHIE – TEAM MEMBER
Hi I’m Sophie, part of the Shrewsbury Youth Mission Team.
I’ve been involved in Catholic Youth Ministry for a many years now, whether that’s as a young person or volunteer and I’m excited to now be working back in the Diocese where I grew up!
One of my favourite saints, Pope St John Paul II, once said ‘life with Christ is a wonderful adventure’ and it is so true! Over the last few years I have had so many amazing opportunities, travelling all over the world, including World Youth Days in Madrid and Poland, going on pilgrimage to Lourdes, being a Life Teen Summer Missionary in Georgia, US and more recently being a NET Missionary in Ireland. However I enjoy just spending time at home or with my friends, you’ll often find us drinking good coffee in nice cafes. I also love finding new Saint friends, so if you see me come and say ‘Hi’ and tell me who your favourite saints are! I’m looking forward to meeting many of the wonderful young people, parishioners and priests of the Diocese of Shrewsbury and working with you all!
