The Faces behind Marymount’s Religious Ministry





I am a 3rd year Psychology and Philosophy major. I come from a Catholic family background, but I’m currently exploring different traditions. My favorite thing about working for MSL is talking with students and learning about their culture and faith!

I am a sophomore studying Information Technology. I am from India and I am an Interfaith Ambassador at Marymount. I like  working for the Office of Ministry and Spiritual life because we get to host and attend events from all the cultural backgrounds of the world! I get to learn so many new things and traditions from so many different countries.


Catholic Campus Ministry 

Fabiana Rojas Duarte 

Hi! I’m Fabiana Rojas Duarte, I’m a senior Psychology major, a student leader with Catholic Campus Ministry, a General Psychology Teaching Assistant and one of the Academic Integrity and Student Conduct Student Panelists at Marymount University. I joined CCM on the spring semester of my sophomore year because I recently returned  back to my faith and was searching for community. During my time here, I fell in love with God again and helped others have that intimate encounter with Him.
Three fun facts about myself: I am pretty artistic and took drawing, guitar, singing and acting during high school, I am from Paraguay and I played basketball during high school!


Madeline DeMarco

The Faces behind Marymount’s Religious Ministry







Hi, my name is Madeline DeMarco, my friends call me Maddy. I am a junior at Marymount studying Business Administration with a specialty in Finance and a minor in Communications. I am involved with Catholic Campus Ministry because it gives me a welcoming place to fully live out my faith while being able to share that faith with others. I love being a CCM student leader because it gives me the opportunity to learn more deeply how to be a disciple of Christ and to build authentic friendships. My favorite CCM events are the monthly Mini-Retreats, I love that we can have food, fellowship, and fun, all while growing deeper in our faith.  Aside from CCM, you may also see me on campus at the pool, because I am on the swim team!  Additionally, I am heavily involved with other student leadership groups and clubs on campus. A fun fact about me is I LOVE the beach, I can be found there all summer. I am also very friendly so don’t be shy to say hello if you see me on campus, I would love to chat.

My name is Grace Ines Allen, I am currently a junior Interior Design student. I am an active member of the Marymount Honors Program and a Student Leader for the CCM. I have a passion for authentic connection and meeting new people. I believe in bettering the lives of all through the word of God and Design. It has been a great experience working and serving in the CCM. Being able to build strong relationships with God and other students. As I always say poor design exists everywhere make it make sense.
