Amy Daniels: Former Methodist Air Force Chaplain

Amy Daniels | April 13, 2015 2 Comments

Amy was brought up in a military home on Governor’s Island in New York. Her parents were Presbyterian but, attending the base chapel, Amy viewed herself merely as Protestant. While visiting Italy with her Latin class in high school she attended Mass with her teacher. This inspired in Amy an interest in all things Catholic that would stay with her throughout her life. Later in life, she would study at Wesleyan Theological Seminary, in Washington DC, be ordained a United Methodist minister and serve as an Air Force chaplain. While stationed in Japan, a Catholic priest friend gave Amy a copy of Rome Sweet Home by Scott and Kimberly Hahn. This started her on the journey that would lead her home to the Catholic Church. Amy is now the Director of the Office of Formation and Discipleship at the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
