Inspired Angela

Let's get inspired.



I’ve got an empty tea cup. Somebody fix this.

Hello. My name is Angela.

Who I Am: Someone once wrote me this note, and I like to think that it’s true: “You are a jewel in this world – a beautiful reflection of Christ’s love. In your gentle way, you change lives by simply being present. You are intelligent, creative, and wise.”

What I Do: Work full-time for a Catholic evangelization apostolate, designing print and web materials, supervising our social media presence, co-producing and occasionally hosting a weekly Catholic TV/radio show, and – whenever possible – mentoring college students through our Media + Ministry internship program. (Inspired Angela blog is personal, and does not represent my employers.)

My Past: Prior to my wedding, I was Angela Santana. I blogged at Catholic Media Girl, ran a graphic/web design apostolate, and helped inspire Brandon Vogt’s groundbreaking book, The Church and New Media.

My Free Time: When I’m not working or sleeping, I’m usually with my husband Dan, who inspires me and is a perfect fit for me.

Hope you enjoy this collection. Peace to you.

    Hi, Angela, very cool! I just started blogging about Catholic recovery, but I dunno what the heck I’m doing. Well, keep on spreading our amazing FAITH!

    Hello Angela, I am a Dominican student brother studying for the priesthood. I am also currently in a preaching class on preaching in the “New Media.” And the professor assigned your undergraduate thesis as one of our readings. I found it very well done, and we had a pretty good conversation about it in class. Just thought you should know.

      Brother Jude, thank you so very much for sharing this news! I am humbled. God be praised (!) that my work has contributed to the formation of Dominicans. May He bless you abundantly as you continue your studies, Brother.
