Like all good coming of age stories, Tiana spent most of her Connecticut childhood dreaming of one day living in the big city. In college she found herself doing just that, as she moved to the greatest city in the world: New York. She gained her street cred living in Harlem before moving to Steubenville, OH where she graduated from Franciscan University with not only one but TWO degrees in Theology and Catechetics. During her time in college she served as a core member for Vagabond Missions and she is excited and humbled to come on full-time with them in Steubenville. Tiana is often in search of thai iced tea and chocolate dippin’ dots. She aspires to one day live in Ireland where it is socially acceptable to drink at least 8 cups of tea a day and own many sheep.

Shannon Keating is a full-time missionary in our location in Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Franciscan University in 2017 with degrees in English and Theology while serving as a volunteer for DVM. Shannon often follows her stomach to the nearest ice cream shop on the hunt for Mint Chocolate Chip. Despite being from North Carolina, Shannon is no stranger to Pittsburgh, so much so that she has been asked multiple times to represent Pennsylvania in the Ms. United States Pageant (maybe). One of Shannon's favorite things in the whole world is when Milan reenacts the opening of the popular Disney film Mulan. When in doubt, get her a bunny mug.

David grew up in the Carrick/Overbrook area of Pittsburgh. He may be seen eating pizza at one of our local pizza parlors, having a pretzel on the Southside, or watching the Pens at the PPG arena. I have a Bachelors of Classical Liberal Arts from the College of St. Thomas More. I am passionate about poetry, I even write a bit, though I am no lover of contemporary poetry. I enjoy reading the classics: Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, Milton. I am also very fond of History. If I had to choose only one saint to follow, it would be St. Augustine; he is the paragon of the sinner turned saint. Lastly, due to my time traveling abroad, time spent in Italy and Spain, I have developed a love for Soccer jerseys and for playing “Football.”
