Hi! I’m Molly. I’m a 1st year missionary from Craig, CO.
What brought you to Christ in the City?
I heard about Christ in the City my senior year of high school from a friend who was applying. I asked my parents, who are both educators, if I could apply for a Year of Service instead of applying to college. Upon their immediate no, I started applying to colleges, and was accepted to Regis University, which is located 3.4 miles north of the Denver CIC house. Very quickly after matriculating at Regis, I got involved with a CIC Marian Group. Soon after, I started going on street walks and fell completely in love with the mission to know, love, and serve the poor. Over the last four years, I have been blessed to encounter the Lord deeply at CIC, both through serving others and being served. There was no way I could not apply to do a Year of Service when I reached my senior year; I am so excited to be at the Denver CIC house this year!
What are you looking forward to?
In short, I am looking forward to everything. I know this will not be an easy year, but it will be a year full of Christ’s love and friendship, a community striving for holiness, and personal growth. I know it will be an experience that I will be talking about for the rest of my life.
A bit about me
I am a Colorado native, born and raised on the Western slope of the state, in a little town with more mule deer than people. I am set to graduate from Regis University in April with a B.S. in Biology. My three younger siblings describe me as a dork, but I personally describe myself as one of the funniest people I have ever met. I love all saints named Teresa, from St. Teresa of Avila to St. Teresa of Calcutta. The story of my life is simple yet grand, and can be summed up in one sentence: the Lord of the Universe pursued a little girl without ceasing, and she fell in love.
