Hi, my name is Kelly Colangelo. My favorite color is purple, I am a huge roller coaster enthusiast, and I love candy, especially junior mints!
I would consider my birth the most significant moment in my life... I can't really imagine what my life would have been like if I wasn't born. I was raised in upstate New York with my parents, sister, and grandparents.
I attended Niagara University, a small Catholic college and was an active disciple of Christ on campus. During my summers off, I had a rockin' job working at a Catholic camp, that would ultimately sow the seed for my passion with ministry to teenagers.
After graduating from Niagara University, I attended Syracuse University for my Masters in School and Student Affairs Counseling. I also went to Franciscan University of Steubenville to get my certificate in youth ministry.
I have served as a Youth Minister for many years. I try my best to maintain a balance between fun, creative programming and meaningful, in depth catechesis. My hope is to challenge youth to be everything God intended them to be... and go to heaven of course!
I am a huge fan of soccer, ice hockey, ultimate frisbee, paintballing and everything related to GK Chesterton, Thomas Aquinas, Francis of Assisi, Theresa of Avila, Vincent de Paul and Philip Neri.

Teen Friendly Bio
I got an award for having the neatest hand writing in second grade, my mom did my homework. I'm not a morning person; I love ketchup, blueberry cake donuts and mint chocolate chip ice cream. I want to go to heaven... and take as many people with me with as possible. Follow me on Twitter or Instagram at Kelly Colangelo.
