Meet The Missionaries

Corinne hails from the beautiful state of ol’ Virginia where she can be frequently found either climbing a mountain, goofing off with any one of her 3 siblings, eating frozen yogurt, cutting out paper snowflakes, dancing a jig, or jumping in a pile of leaves.  During her time at Belmont Abbey College, she encountered Christ in such a way that left her with a desire to reach out to and serve her generation and combat the ills of our time. Senior year came, and God answered this desire in the craziest way she thought possible-by becoming a FOCUS missionary. Returning to the Ave Maria for her second year of missionary work, she is thrilled to continue developing the relationships that brought her so much joy last year…..and to defy all odds and finally prove that Irish girls can get a tan. St. Cecilia and Bl. JPII, pray for us!

Meet Missy Brassie. She’s from Indiana and proud to have her roots there. She travels the world on mission and to see friends and loves using her wings. She hasn’t been bored in seven years and loves trying new things, like jumping out of planes, and eating at ethnic restaurants. If she never saw another drop of snow in her life, she’d die happy and she plans to take full advantage of the gulf shores of Florida. Call her if you want to go on an adventure!
