Nick Scanlan

Director of Student & Young Adult Ministries

After graduating high school Nick served with a Catholic organization call NET Ministries and worked in a parish youth ministry program for a year. He loved it and went on to study Theology and Catechetics (with a concentration in Youth Ministry) at Franciscan University of Steubenville. He was later hired as the Director of Youth Ministry at St. Gabriel in Hubertus. At St. Gabriel Nick started a program for middle and high school students from scratch and updated the Sacrament of Confirmation process.He moved to St. Charles in May 2018.

Nick's journey of faith began with his parents who were both faithful Catholics who gave time to teach religious ed classes. Nick went to a Catholic high school with a strong academic approach to the faith but it was in ministry events outside of school that his love for God and His Church began to grow. He calls himself a "a total retreat junkie" and eventually began to move from being a participant to a coordinator of different ministry events.

Nick and his wife Maryellen are parents to a young daughter. In his spare time you may find him hanging out with his family, writing and recording music, playing local gigs, and exploring new "foody" locations.
