Staff Member: Jenna Leighton
My name is Jenna Leighton. A native Minnesota, I grew up in a wonderful Catholic family of seven at the parish of St. Stephen, Anoka. It was through my family and the youth ministry at my parish that I personally encountered Jesus and began living intentionally for Him. In the latter years of high-school, the call to serve in ministry began to grow in my heart. I went to Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio and graduated in 2014 with a double major in Theology and Catechetics (with a concentration in Youth Ministry) and a minor in Philosophy. I am thrilled to be a part of the community of the Church of Saint Henry serving youth and their families. It is a joy to walk with teens as they encounter Jesus, respond to His Love, and share His Love with others. I often say, “I have the coolest job ever!”. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, adventuring outdoors, and doing crafts.
