My name’s Rachel and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary from Dickeyville, WI.

What brought me to Christ in the City

I visited Christ in the City last summer and I was taken aback by the radiance and genuine faith our brothers and sisters living on the street had. They ministered to me. I walked away from Lunch in the Park a different person, and since that visit I had kept this ministry in the back of my mind. The feeling of being called to this opportunity only grew stronger and more apparent, Praise God!

What I’m looking forward to

To love the being, know the heart, to hear the story, and to serve the needs of Our Lord on the street and anywhere else we are taken. I am also looking forward to pursuing this mission with my fellow missionaries, mission partners, our patron saints, Our Blessed Mother and Jesus Himself.

A bit about me

I just finished my sophomore year at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where I majored in Public and Community Health. The last two years at UWL have been transformational and forming, as I’ve grown to know the beauty of our Catholic faith and the fulfillment of giving ourselves for the sake of another. I’ve always found unexplainable joy in helping the vulnerable and making a gift of my time. I am passionate about the pro-life movement and the protection, empowerment, and value it places on human life at every stage.
