Today I interview the other founder of Eden Invitation (an apostolate for those with same -sex attraction)! You may remember Episode 145 when I interviewed Anna Carter well Shannon is the other half of the Eden Invitation team and I am so excited about the ministry these two beautiful women have founded.
Who is Shannon? As a young girl, Shannon spent Sunday mornings in the pew eating contraband pretzels out of her dress pockets. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with degrees in Social Welfare and Gender & Women's Studies. She has fallen for men and for women, but ultimately she fell for the beauty of Christ and His Church. Prior to founding Eden Invitation, Shannon worked in college campus ministry with The Evangelical Catholic and Brew City Catholic. Her current roles include relationship nurturer, community developer, and social media quote-finder. If you're looking for her, try the shore of the nearest body of water.

I'm super excited to share with you that Eden Invitation was the recent winner of the 2020 OSV Innovation Challenge! What is the OSV Innovation Challenge? Well think Catholic “Shark Tank” its a challenge created by Our Sunday Visitor and Catholic Creatives that seeks to encourage innovation that is God inspired and is motivated by a love of our broken world. Eden Invitation was awarded $100,000 to further their ministry. I am so proud of Anna and Shannon! You can read more about Eden Invitation and OSV Challenge below!
