Associate Director of Liturgy and Music

Samantha Delke is excited to begin her journey at St. Thomas the Apostle as the new Associate Director of Liturgy and Music.  She is from Minneapolis, MN and completed her undergraduate degree at St. Norbert College in De Pere, WI in Music and Spanish.  After meeting her husband, Doménico, through a study abroad program, Samantha moved to Ecuador and lived there for three years as an elementary arts educator. 

In 2017, Samantha, Doménico, and their dog, Nacho, moved to Collegeville, MN so that she could pursue a Master of Arts in Liturgical Music at Saint John’s University School of Theology and Seminary. Having graduated in May 2019, Samantha is blessed to have found such a welcoming parish in which to serve and is looking forward to sharing her gifts with the STA community.  Samantha is passionate about the inclusion of the World Church in liturgy and finding ways to ensure that all persons are welcomed into the Body of Christ.
