Michelle Kelley, MA

I am grateful for the opportunity to journey with you as you further your relationship with God. I am a campus minister, theology teacher, and certified spiritual director in the Catholic, Ignatian Tradition.  I feel blessed to have been called to this ministry, and have journeyed with women & men of all ages in spiritual direction. I look forward to meeting you as you seek a relationship with our Good God.  

Spiritual Director
Theology Teacher & Campus Minister 

Background and Formation:

I am a spiritually grounded, faith-filled woman of God.  I currently work in education at an all-girls Catholic high school, teaching church history and the New Testament Scriptures.  I also serve in the Mission and Ministry Office, implementing servant leadership retreats and providing student formation. Most recently, I started utilizing my educational and ministerial experience as a Spiritual Director to provide discernment meetings for seniors to assist in their college decision process. 

My previous work experience included creating Liturgies and prayer services, immersion experiences, retreats, daily prayer, and seasonal reflections for Advent and Lent. My hope for you is to be a listening ear to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in your life as you continue to build a deeper, loving relationship with God.
