Student Loan Debt and Lay Ministers: An Interview with Amanda Zurface

December 9, 2020

A few months back we did a series of podcasts on how student loan debt is affecting vocations. In this episode, we speak to Amanda Zurface ( about how student loan debt is affecting lay ministers as well. Amanda is a Catholic spiritual director, writer, speaker, and Canon Lawyer. She is also one of the millions of young adults dealing with student loan debt. Amanda speaks to us about her debt load is affecting her life and her calling to lay ministry. Despite her debt load, Amanda still donates 10% of her annual profit to help others who have accrued student loans debt to either directly or indirectly serve the Catholic Church.
