Misty Heinen Prater

Campus Minister

I have the privilege being in my seventh year as a campus minister here at St. Thomas Aquinas. I very much enjoy working with ISU students and being involved in the STA community as a parishioner. I get to coordinate the small groups, so if you would like to be connected with other students or young adults, let me know! I also get to work with the new student retreat, the spirituality and dating retreat, peer ministers, graduate students, and the Outreach Team. I am the contact person for the STA Young Adults so if you ever want to organize an activity for those parishioners post undergrad to 35ish, let me know.

I am originally from Kansas. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are from the University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, KS. I am associate with the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth and love living my Vincentian Charism.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jacob, and our son, Ezekiel.
