President

COLLEEN CONNOLLY

Hey, Madam Pres here! My name is Colleen, if you see me on campus say hi because I love to talk. I'm a graphic design senior and an Honors College student. Things I enjoy include going to art museums, embarrassing my sister in Christ Grace Miner, describing every experience as "wilddd", praying with Mother Mary, buying books then not reading them, and a band called the Mountain Goats. Pray for me!

Outreach Chair

SANTIAGO BARRERO

I am a man who tries to find God in every little thing that happens to me, or what I do. My first vocation is to holiness, my second is being a finance major at VCU. I I found God working in the oil fields of North Dakota, and being a roughneck. The way how we work on wells, is very similar to how God works in our hearts and souls. May the Oil field become sanctified.
