Director, Catholic Youth Ministry Perth
Adeline is the Director of Catholic Youth Ministry Perth. In 2017, she took a leap of faith and said ‘yes’ to the Lord’s calling in joining full-time youth ministry work and waved goodbye to her corporate career. 3 years later, she is still here. Apparently, when you are open to the Lord, He does take you up on that offer. Adeline is a wife who finds joy spending time with her husband (mostly keeping him well-fed), Marian devotion, fitness, and enjoying a strong cup of coffee.
