About our Youth Minister, Carol Nowatzke

I am from Kansas City originally. I grew up in a suburb on the Kansas side called Prairie Village. I attended both Catholic elementary and high schools, where my passion for youth ministry began. In those years I attended Camp Kateri Tekakwitha, a Catholic camp owned by the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas for six summers. This turned into four summers of staff membership, three years as a lead counselor and one as a ropes crew member. While not at camp, I attended Missouri State University and earned a B.A. in Religious Studies with a minor in piano performance. I have lived in Chicago since 2010 and am currently working on a Masters in Pastoral Studies at Loyola University-Chicago. In my spare time I enjoy singing, reading, listening to music, Netflix, Facebook, and the occasional pontifical document.
