Meet the Staff


David O’Neill, Coordinator of Campus Ministry

Originally from Australia, David moved to Idaho with his then, soon-to-be wife, Saeward, in 2007. They have three children; a daughter, Ellie, and 2 sons, Liam & Killian.

David has been involved in ministry for over 18 years – including serving with NET Ministries Australia, the Diocese of Baker as Director of Youth Ministry, Life Teen, and most recently, as the Director of the Catholic Student Center for St. Augustine’s at the University of Idaho. He has worked at the parish, diocesan, and international level and has been active in coordinating and facilitating events, leading retreats, and speaking at conferences.

David and his family are passionate about engaging people in the mission of the Church, building community, and forming faithful, life-long Catholics. They are excited to be back in Pocatello near family, friends, and the great Catholic community at St John’s.
