Get to know your Diocesan Staff. Meet Caroline Miller.
Caroline, what is your position with the diocese?
I am the assistant to the Canon for Vocations. I do a lot of administrative work—emailing, scheduling, and so on—but I also do research and maintain the library. A big part of my job is helping people in the discernment process. I am frequently in touch with seminarians, and I help Marilyn with her work in a variety of ways. For example, this year I was the diocesan point person for organizing the Conference on Ministry.
What other ministries are you involved with?
I am a member of Church of the Incarnation in Oviedo. I have served as a Lay Eucharistic Minister there for the past three years, and I am looking forward to being involved in their new Spanish-language service. Also, I am part of the new Critical Incident Stress Management team the diocese is organizing.
Tell us a bit more about yourself.
I grew up in Nairobi, Kenya, as the daughter of missionaries. If you have never been to Kenya, you should go! It is beautiful and so different.
Since moving back to the United States, I attended college and then completed a master’s degree in marriage and family counseling. When not working in the diocesan office, I work part time as a counselor at Eirene Counseling Services. I am passionate about helping couples overcome challenges, walking through healing with trauma survivors, and assisting missionary kids through the process of re-entry into the United States.
