Director of Campus Ministry
Hey there! I'm Sarah, and I serve the students of Fontbonne as campus minister. I love building relationships with college students and encouraging them to grow in their relationship with God. I'm fascinated by people's stories and seeing how God has been at work in them. Along with coordinating liturgies, retreats, prayer opportunties, and small faith sharing groups on campus, I also co-advise FISH, the student service organization, Dance Marathon, and Students for Life. When I'm on campus, you can find me out and about on campus or in my office on the first floor of Medaille Hall. Know if my door is open, you are more than welcome to drop in on me! When I'm off campus, I'm hanging out with my husband, Dave, and our dog, Marley. We love a good long road trip, remodeling our home, being outside, and having a good time with family and friends.
Music Ministry Coordinator
Hi, I’m Brian and I’m excited to return to Fontbonne as the Music Ministry Coordinator. I love my wife, my 2 beautiful children and my job as Director of Young Adult Ministry for the Archdiocese, and of course, worshipping through Music. If you’re looking to get involved in the Liturgical Choir this year at Fontbonne, shoot me an email at email@example.com.
你好! Nǐ hǎo! Greetings! My name is Isabella Liu and I am the Campus Ministry Intern for the 2012-2013 year. I hail from Taipei, Taiwan, a long way from St. Louis, but for now, it’s my home. Come 2013, I will graduate with a degree in speech-language pathology major and a minor in performing arts. I find that kind souls, big hearts and crazy ideas in St. Louis are plentiful, especially when they need to tame the art, song and culture aficionado that I am. Being involved shows me this: I am a part of the Fontbonne International Students Alliance (FISA), Dance Marathon, the National Student Speech, Hearing and Language Association (NSSHLA), the Fontbonne Beat, Fontbonne Orientation Committee Uniting Students (FOCUS) and Mustard Seed Theatre, our on-campus professional Theatre. Spare time, as you can see, gets limited! I cherish it by spending time with my friends jamming or watching movies or visiting the Zoo and the Art Museum, and still, I find my faith in everything I do. It has been a challenging faith journey but illuminating, and I discover new things day by day that keep me going. I am sure you will find Fontbonne to help you become the best you can be. Allow me to end by saying that I am here for YOU, and I hope to help you grow in your faith journey, and invite you to pelt me with ideas, advice and help. Your input is crucial is Campus Ministry and I am looking forward to seeing you around!

Hey everyone! My name is Anna Hotop and I am a senior at Fontbonne majoring in Religious Studies and minoring in Psychology.

I am truly excited about my new role as spiritual growth chair and am looking forward to all the blessings that I know will come with it!
Hey everyone! My name is Shannon Lefler and I am a Sophomore at Fontbonne studying Speech Language Pathology. I am from Gray Summit, MO and a graduate from Pacific High School.
