Youth Ministry

Meet the St. James Parish Youth Minister........

Hello Everyone!

My name is Danielle Blanshan, and I am the new Youth minister/DRE here at St. James Parish. I am originally from Savage, MN, where I grew up spending much of my time with my faith formation program, playing softball, and participating in olympic style weightlifting. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire this year with my Bachelors in Special Education, and I look forward to being able to bring my faith into my teaching! I recently moved up here to Duluth, and I am so excited to get to know you all throughout the upcoming years. Please know of my prayers for you, and feel free to let me know of any specific intentions you may have that you’d like me to offer up. Also, don’t ever hesitate to ask me any questions. I am an open book and would love the opportunity to speak with you.
