My name is Savannah Price, I am 23 , and I am from DeKalb Illinois. To tell you a little bit about myself, I grew up as a Catholic however, it wasn’t until high school that I started to dig deeper into my faith. After graduating high school in 2015, I did a year in Americorps National Community Corps (NCCC). During that time I lived in Sacramento CA, North Bend WA, Grass Valley CA, Groveland CA and Roseburg Oregon; working within communities that were in the most need. Most of the work that I did during that time was removing invasive species, creating fire defensible space around homes, planted trees, and refurbishing hiking trails. After that year I went back home to go to college, and there received my Associates in Arts, became a certified nursing assistant, and received a certificate in ministry through the Rockford Diocese.
Once I graduated I decided to pursue ministry and became a missionary with NET Ministries where I traveled to 11 different states to conduct retreats for middle and high school students. Unfortunately my year with NET ended abruptly due to Covid so we all were sent home early. My plan was to start working at a local parish when I returned home, however due to everything going on, that plan fell through.
Through social media I found the missionary intern program and instantly fell in love with it. I can’t wait to get to know you all soon, especially those who will be in the confirmation program this year! If you have any questions, prayer intentions or simply want to chat with a Midwesterner, please feel free as I would love to chat!
