Joseph Goodwin, Assistant Youth Minister

Joseph Goodwin

Assistant Youth Minister

Joe is from a big family in Houston, TX. He went to Franciscan University in 2010 for two years, then taught Totus Tuus in Denver where he fell in love with the people and the place. He spent a year as a Missionary of Purity in Pennsylvania, speaking on chastity at the high schools and middle schools. He entered seminary in Denver in 2013 where he studied for three years, and in the summer of 2016 he was (providentially) assigned to Cabrini! By the end of it, it was clear God was calling him to return to the world and pursue married life, and he joined the team as one of the assistant youth ministers in August. He likes hanging out with friends, is known to bust a move and has a strange love for leaping from one boulder to another.
