 Nichole Schneider, Catholic Campus Minister,

Shippensburg University.


I am originally from the Mechanicsburg, PA area but have spent the last 6 years living in both Delaware and Pittsburgh while attending college and graduate school. I hold a Masters degree in social work and have spent time working in healthcare social work. Most recently, feeling God’s call on my heart to work in ministry, I went back to school (online!) and am now pursuing an MA in theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville. God’s providence in bringing me to Ship and in opening doors so that I can work in ministry has been incredible - He has moved me, changed me, and provided me with second chances, new opportunities, and restoration. God is good! I truly love the Catholic faith, and I am excited to see how our Lord will work through the ministry to these students.
