Ruth is the current Senior Youth Ministry Worker for Sandhurst Diocese. She grew up in Bendigo, attending St. Therese’s Primary School and Catholic College Bendigo before moving to Melbourne to study for a Bachelor of Arts at Latrobe University. She then completed an Honours year in Theatre Studies. This was followed by a year at RMIT studying for a Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary). She began her teaching career at St. Joseph’s College, Echuca, before moving to Notre Dame College, Shepparton. Her next move was to London, were she worked as a teacher and a Nanny. The move to London enabled her to see some incredible theatre and explore parts of Europe.
Ruth has been involved in different areas of Youth Ministry over the years, highlights including attending World Youth Day 2005 in Cologne, Germany, and 2016 in Krakow, Poland. Most recently she has spent a week with the Taize Community in France.
Ruth is very excited to have returned to Sandhurst, a place she has always considered home, and is looking forward to accompanying the young people of the Diocese on their faith journeys.
