When it comes to church ministry, Adam Prince is quite the Renaissance man. A member of both St. Leo the Great University Parish and St. John Church in Russellville, Prince is available for whatever the parishes need.

“I like to donate my time and help with just about anything I can,” Prince, 24, said. “That can be anywhere from helping with installing some new technology to mopping or sweeping the floors, or cooking at an event or helping with music -- it’s a wide range of things.”

Prince, with his wife Kalley, 22, volunteered with Bible study, music ministry and other campus activities. Most notably, he prepared St. John Church to provide online Masses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prince said his family, who has been involved with St. Leo Parish since his childhood, is a major influence on his ministry.

“My family’s always been very active in their religion. And so being raised that way has helped me realize how important religion is to me, and why it’s important to take care of the Church family,” he said.

Prince attends Arkansas Tech University, where he’ll graduate in December with a degree in information technology, and interns for Hackney Ladish. Despite balancing school and work, he values ministering on campus.

“I see so many people who struggle with religion in general. And that’s one of the big things about St. Leo’s is that you could be any other religion and come and hang out with us, and we’re not going to judge you for that,” he said.
