Loyola Alumna Kayla August '10, M.P.S. '16 Featured as First Female on America Media's Podcast, "Preach"

Kayla August

Kayla August '10, M.P.S. '16 was recently the first female to be featured on America Media's new weekly podcast, Preach. In her interview, she shares the gifts of lay preaching and talks about how we can make the kingdom of Heaven a reality on earth.

As a student at Loyola, Kayla was the recipient of the 2010 Ignatian Graduating Senior Award and completed her Master of Pastoral Studies in 2016. She is currently a doctoral student at the School of Theology and Ministry at Boston College. 

"I use preaching to impact religious education by inspiring Christians to deepen their encounters with scripture and how God plays an active role in our daily lives. My hope is to bring preaching into traditional and non-traditional arenas to reawaken and to re-engage in an active spiritual life. I hope through preaching, I can help to enliven the young adult faith community also help to inspire marginalized voices—like my own—to play an active role in the Church."
