Coordinator of Youth Ministry
My name is Kelly Hayes. I am originally from Edina, Minnesota and currently live in Minneapolis. I graduated from the College of St. Benedict in 2013 with a degree in Theology- Pastoral Ministry and Fine Arts. Growing up I had always been involved in my parish youth group. As I got older it became clear my love for the Church and spending time with youth was something I really wanted to pursue as a career.
Over the years I had many amazing opportunities to grow as a person and in faith. Some of the most powerful faith experiences have been through travel and mission work. I have had the opportunity to go on several international trips, including; studying abroad in Rome and Athens, as well as a service trips to the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Indonesia, Mexico, and Nigeria. Travel is one among many of my passions. Other interests of mine include photography, reading, and spending time on the water whether it be paddle boarding, kayaking, or just hanging out with friends and family.
I love being a part of the St. Vincent de Paul community and walking beside young people on their journey of faith!
