Megan Effron is the Director of Faith Exploration at La Lumiere School, an independent, Catholic boarding and day prep school in La Porte, Indiana. She teaches a variety of theology courses—Biblical Literacy, Stories of Grace, and Exploring Faith with C.S. Lewis—and also coordinates school retreats and liturgies. She and her husband Kevin live on campus and serve as Dorm Parents for the residential students of Becket Dorm.
Prior to working at La Lumiere, Megan served in a variety of ministry roles while earning her Master of Divinity at the University of Notre Dame. From leading Bible studies with the inmates of St. Joseph County Jail to teaching homiletics to students at Holy Cross College to facilitating Lectionary-based faith sharing for the women of Welsh Family Hall, Megan’s love for the Word and passion for preaching remain at the heart of her ministerial pursuits.
Originally from California, Megan graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in Spanish. After her undergraduate studies, she served with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps at Cristo Rey High School Sacramento from 2015-2016.
Megan will be returning to the University of Notre Dame in the Fall of 2021 to begin her Doctorate in Systematic Theology. She hopes to study the theology of preaching through the lens of ecclesiology, pneumatology, and sacramental theology.
