At the age of 16, Co Carlow native Julianne Donlon Stanz climbed Croagh Patrick where she and her peers had a “transformative encounter with God”. She felt like God spoke to her, so she wanted to strengthen her relationship with the Lord.

During her education, Julianne realised she wanted to follow a path of faith ministry.

“I was educated by the Sisters of Mercy at St. Leo’s in Carlow and they were just incredible women and I think that was probably one of the first times I had seen a lived faith expressed, you know in the character of their work and their ministry and that was eye-opening. Then I went to Mater Dei in Dublin and a priest of the Archdiocese of Dublin, Fr. Eoin Cassidy, mentored me and just was a wonderful person,” Julianne says.
