National Staff

Michelle Schmidt

Michelle Schmidt

Director of Mission Engagement

Michelle was raised in a devoutly Catholic home but lost her faith, and her way, in college.  Born on Palm Sunday in Weisbaden, Germany she was consecrated to the Blessed Virgin at her baptism on Easter morning just one week later.  She attributes her powerful reversion and return to the Church in her early 20’s to Our Lady’s intercession and the daily rosaries of her parents.  Passionately prolife, she served as the Executive Director and Director of Client Services at Mother & Unborn Baby Care in Southfield, Michigan for 10 years before coming to St Paul Street Evangelization.  She believes that the opportunity to help connect vital resources and people to the mission of the new evangelization is a great gift from God, and asks you to please pray that He will bless it abundantly.  She is currently in formation to be a Third Order Carmelite, and lives in Michigan with her wonderful husband Paul and three college age sons, Nick, Sam and Max. michelle@stpaulse.com
Mark Hornbacher

Associate Director of Operations

Growing up nominally Catholic, Mark began reading and studying the Scriptures as a teenager. This journey into a more mature faith led him to theology studies, discernment of religious life, and four years of diocesan seminary, before he recognized a lay calling in service to the Church’s mission. As Office Manager and Associate Director of Operations at St. Paul Street Evangelization, Mark works together with the executive staff to coordinate and supervise many of the apostolate’s daily operations, and helps develop and implement many of its initiatives. He resides in Bloomington, IN. mark@stpaulse.com
