Kelly Quindlen Wins Essay Contest


Blessed Trinity senior Kelly Quindlen was awarded first place in the archdiocese’s Serra Club Essay Contest.

All high school students in the Archdiocese of Atlanta were eligible to participate in the essay contest. The students had to submit a 200-400 word essay focused on the theme "We Are the Lord’s," Archbishop Wilton Gregory’s motto.

"Kelly’s essay showed the next generation understands what God is calling them to do," said Fr. Kevin Peek, Blessed Trinity chaplain. "It is just a matter of praying and helping them discern his calling."

Kelly is the daughter of Gerald and Teresa Quindlen of Alpharetta and is a parishioner at St. Brigid Catholic Church.

All entries were displayed at the Vocations Fair held at the Cathedral of Christ the King on March 11. The Serra Club is dedicated to fostering vocations to the priesthood and religious life and to support priests and religious in the Atlanta diocese.
