Institute for Evangelization
Kellie is a native of Baltimore and grew up in Harford County in St. Stephen Church, Bradshaw. She currently resides in Cecil County, MD with her husband Jay. In 1998, encouraged by the Sisters of St. Francis at her parish, Kellie began professional ministry as a Coordinator of Youth and Young Adult Ministry for St. Stephen, where she had been volunteering as a catechist since the age of 19. After graduating from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland with a BA in Religious Studies, she enrolled at the Ecumenical Institute at St. Mary’s Seminary where she completed Master’s Degrees in Theology and Church Ministry. Upon completing the Pastoral Associate Formation Program, Kellie became the Pastoral Associate of St. Stephen in 2016, broadening her ministry scope beyond youth and young adults to include support for a variety of parish ministries. Currently, she is enrolled in the Doctor of Ministry program at the Ecumenical Institute of St. Mary’s Seminary. When not studying, Kellie and her husband Jay enjoy exploring National Parks, camping, and gardening.
Some of my greatest joys have come from parish life, especially walking with lay leaders of all ages as they generously share their gifts in service to their family, the community, and the Church.
