Hello! My name is Riley Helgoe. I am from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and have been in Missoula for the last five years. I earned my Associates Degree in Business Management and am currently working on my Bachelors Degree in Philosophy.
I was raised in a nominally Lutheran/Non-denomonational household though I lived as a practical atheist. After moving to Montana, my mother, who returned to the Church of her youth, convinced me to do RCIA and be received into the Catholic Church. After years of worldly living in highschool and my first two years of college, I agreed I needed a change. Through the Grace of God I was confirmed into the Church on Easter of 2014, and my life has never been the same. "What is man that You magnify him, and that You are concerned about him?" - Job 7:17
In my third year of peer ministry at CCM, I am very excited to continue working with new UM students and old, as we learn more and live out our faith together.

Howdy! I'm Liz McMahon and I have been in Missoula for a year now after growing up in good ol' McKinney, Texas! I will be starting my Junior year at the University of Montana as a Communication Studies Major with a minor in Communicative Science and Disorders ( a mouthful, I know!) with the hopes of becoming a Youth Minister one day! I enjoy Ultimate Frisbee, making knotted rosaries, and taking naps in my hammock! As a "Cradle Catholic" my faith has always been a part of my life, but the Lord fanned the flame while I was in High School and I have been striving to share and live my beautiful Catholic faith ever since! As a Peer Minister, I am so pumped to engage with students and share God's radical love with all that I meet! God Bless!

Hey! I'm Colton; 1 part crazy, 2 parts student, 4 parts outdoor enthusiast, and 9 parts disciple. Originally from Helena, Montana, I studied pre-pharmacy at Carroll College and currently working on my Pharmacy degree at the University of Montana. With encouragement from my friends and family -- especially my grandpa-- I investigated Catholicism and was inflamed with love for our Lord at a young age. I have always tried to keep my faith near and dear. In my free time, I like to explore the beauty that God has created by hiking, skiing, dirt biking, kayaking, pedal biking, snowmobiling, and anything with my fiancée, Kathryn. I am grateful for an amazing community where I am hoping to give back to God’s kingdom and bring the joy of Christ to the ends of the earth.

Hi! My name is Hannah! I am from Lake Arrowhead, California... & yes, I am adjusting to the lovely Montana cold quite well. I am currently a freshman and I intend to get my degree in Psychology and a minor in Philosophy. In my free time I usually read or watch Netflix. I play on the intramural innertube water polo team and I also work at the UMPD as a member of the Griz Walk Team. I was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school my entire life. In moving to Montana, I really wanted to find my faith while being away from home early. I started attending Unite and going to mass. Now, I am very blessed to be an intern for CCM. I am very passionate about my faith because I have had to depend on it a lot in my life. My goal is to try and inspire and be a messenger of God’s Word!
