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 with honors, I attended Syracuse University for my Masters in Counseling. I also went to Franciscan University of Steubenville to get my certificate in youth ministry.
I have served as a Youth Minister for the last several 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, Theresa of Avila, 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 @Kelly Colangelo.
