Staff Member: Jenna Leighton
My name is Jenna Leighton. I grew up in Minnesota as the middle of five from a Catholic, home-schooling family. While I always knew of God's love for me, it was largely through my experience of youth ministry 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 and make the decision to live intentionally for Him. 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.
