Corinne MacDonald
( Director of Programs )

Biography

Corinne spearheads the design, development, and training for our programs stateside and abroad. This year, she has the privilege of returning to Krakow with her family to relaunch our programs and accompany the participating students and pilgrims as the on-site director.  She has 13+ years of experience in program building and apostolate with youth and young adults through her work in university campus outreach, youth ministry, and years of working study abroad in Rome.

What brought her to Rome was the pursuit of a postgraduate degree in Institutional Communications from The Pontifical University of Santa Croce. While leading her study abroad undergraduate students, Corinne not only carried out her own studies but also launched the English edition of the online think-tank, Family and Media. She also contributed to the launching of the now-international academic journal, Church, Communications, and Culture.

She cherishes the opportunities she embraced to lead 30+ mission trips, retreats, camps, and pilgrimages, including various World Youth Days around the globe, including accompanying our first JP2 program participants in Krakow at the inception of the JP2 Project. Corinne loves that she can continue to carry out this beautiful mission while having the joy of raising her beloved, energetic children, ages 1, 3, 4, and 6.
