This apostolate challenges her to build relationships that help the Sisters grow their mission and become more effective in all their evangelization efforts.

Caitlyn VanHorssen

Jeanne O’Connell and her husband, Kelly, have resided in Kalispell, Montana, for 30 years and have raised 5 beautiful and talented children.  She is a 16-year Pastoral Assistant at St. Matthew’s Catholic Parish, employed as Director of Women’s Formation and Marriage Ministries. She was raised in North Dakota, graduated from the University of Minnesota-Crookston as a Registered Professional Court Reporter, worked as a Court Reporter in Helena 10 years before moving to Kalispell to be wife and mother.   Preceding her employment at St. Matthew’s, she was awakened to the love of Christ through the truths and beauty of Catholicism, which led to a deep reversion back to the Catholic faith. She has been a featured guest on Johnnette Benkovic’s EWTN Women of Grace program, has facilitated multiple Women of Grace classes, and holds certifications in John Paul II’s Theology of the Body from the Theology of the Body Institute.  She is also a certified Dream Manager Life Coach through Matthew Kelly’s Floyd Consulting Company, and an inspired St. Hildegard von Bingen enthusiast. In 2017 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, but has won the battle and has a message of physical, spiritual and relational healing that she is passionate about sharing.

"All the speakers talked about something different. Yet all boiled down to something: I am loved, worth much more than I show, wake up and love. Thank you!"
