Meghan Stretar joined St. Benedict’s shortly after the middle school youth trip to Duluth. After that experience, she couldn’t wait to continue officially as the new Youth Minister. In addition to working at St. Benedict’s, she will also be Faith Formation Coordinator at St. John the Baptist in Collegeville and pursuing a Master of Divinity at the School of Theology at St. John’s University. Originally from Apple Valley, MN, she graduated from the College of St. Benedict with a degree in Elementary Education in the spring of 2017. She has spent countless hours working in the classroom with children in grades K-12 as well as doing non-profit educational outreach for under-resourced youth in the Twin Cities. Her passions lie in outreach, ministry, and music. In her limited spare time, Meghan is most likely to be found with a book in hand, cooking, exploring St. John’s, or traveling to San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala (ask her about it)!!
