Riley is a freshman at St. Dominic. One of Riley’s extracurriculars is helping with PSR classes and being a member of the St. Joseph Cottleville Youth Group. This is Riley’s first year in youth group and as an eighth grade PSR teacher. Recently, Riley and the youth group lead the eighth graders on a Confirmation retreat.

“Leading the eighth graders impacted me because I think fasting before the retreat helped me strengthen my relationship with God and seeing the kids get so happy during adoration and after the retreat… made me want to strive even more in my faith and push myself to pray more,” said Riley.

Riley is excited for many more years of guiding eighth graders towards Christ and is hoping to help with a second PSR class next year.
