Katherine Angulo, M.A.

Program Director, Thriving in Ministry Initiative

330 Geddes Hall

As the Program Director of the Thriving in Ministry Initiative, Katherine directs four important outreach efforts, three of which are supported by Lilly Endowment, Inc. Katherine works to prepare pastoral leaders for long-term ministry in the Church in the Strong Foundations for Catholic Leaders program; provides intellectual and spiritual renewal for invited diocesan priests in the Bishop John M. D'Arcy Program in Priestly Renewal; and is partnering with Iskali to create cultures of affiliation in the Hispanic Catholic Church in the United States through the Young Adult Innovation Hub. The fourth initiative, generously supported by Gibney, seeks to re-propose the Holy Family of Nazareth as the foundation for catechetical renewal within the domestic Hispanic Church. This program is being piloted in the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

Born in Mexico and raised in Colombia, Katherine received her B.A. in Modern Languages in 2000 and her M.A. in Pastoral Ministries in 2005. She has more than 22 years of experience in parish and diocesan ministry including the Dioceses of Knoxville TN; Raleigh, NC; and the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Angulo was the creator and editor of The Mark, a Catholic teen magazine, and the Executive Producer of the volunteer training program Called to Accompany/Llamados a Acompañar. She is part of the Board of Advisors for the Lilly Endowment in Thriving in Ministry Initiatives. She also serves on the Board of Governors for the Mexican American Catholic Colleges (MACC), and on the Board of Advisors for the Nuevo Momento initiative from Boston College.

Katherine lives in Granger, Indiana. She takes every opportunity to travel to new places but always makes it a priority to visit her family in Tampa and Bogota.
