Hannah Rothermel

Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministries

Hannah was born and mostly raised in Baton Rouge. She briefly moved to Spring, Texas with her family during her high school years, but hurried back to Louisiana as fast as she could.

She is a third-generation Episcopalian, and has worked with youth on a parish and diocesan level for five years. She is passionate about all things Louisiana, football, and music. She loves meeting new people and is excited to dive into the community of St. James. and is looking forward to meeting the lovely people of St. James and getting to know the youth!

Hannah is working toward an elementary education degree from LSU, followed by the Masters of Art in Teaching. She most recently worked as a teacher’s assistant at Trinity Episcopal Day School. She has also worked at St. Alban’s for four years where she has done just about “everything but building and grounds.”

Destination Unknown is for 3rd-8th youth on July 7. Drop off is at 5 p.m. on July 7 with pick up at 11 p.m.

This is an adventure where we will explore some of the exciting things in Baton Rouge and build community through fellowship. For example, we could start at St. James and walk somewhere downtown for dinner. From there we would load up and go bowling, next to laser tag or area 51, and end up somewhere to get ice cream The best part about destination unknown is that participants don’t know what they will be doing in advance. (But don’t worry, no one will be disapointed.)

Exact details will be emailed to parents after their youth signs up to partiticpate.

If you're interested in chaperoning for this event please let Hannah know.

The cost for Destination Unknown is $25 and friends are always welcome to join us at any youth event.
